Way up, way up
Way up, way up
High up in Jerusalem
When I die
(rpt again)

Go knows I'm gonna
Walk in Jerusalem
Talk in Jerusalem
Sing in Jerusalem
Be in Jerusalem
High up in Jerusalem whe I die

Oh, be in Jerusalem
Sing in Jerusalem
Shout in Jerusalem
Pray in Jerusalem
High up in Jerusalem when I die.

Hmm, when I get down to the river
I'm gonna stick my sword in the sand
For I spy the ol' ship of Zion
Who took a-many to the Promised Land
Way over in Buelah
Where there ain't no dying there
Where the saints shoutin' victory
Oh, they singin', Lord, everywhere
Way over in Buelah
I hear the voice of friends I've known
They been gone on, gone on to Glory
Well, well a long time ago
They been waitin'
They been watchin'
They been waitin' at the beautiful gates
And one day I'm gonna meet them
Oh, I'm gonna sing forever more
Way over in Buelah
I see the Captain beckoned to me
Well, he's callin' all God's chirrun'
Oh, to meet him on the Promised Land.

God knows I'm gonna
Walk in Jerusalem
Talk in Jerusalem
Sing in Jerusalem
Be in Jerusalem
High up, oh, in Jerusalem
When I die, Oh yeah

Well, be in Jerusalem
Sing in Jerusalem
Shout in Jerusalem
Sing in Jerusalem
High up, oh, in Jerusalem
When I die.
