Composer’s Foreword

I do not know how to put my composed words into tonic solfa format, but having learnt however remotely how to compose songs using local Yoruba format, I decide to come with a work around on how to make my songs internationally acceptable, therefore, I have been mimicking some hymns which I believe anyone who knows how to sing such hymn globally would be able to sing along with me my composed song using the tune that I have used beneath.

Having said this, I sincerely invite you to join me in singing this newly composed song, because I know music yea songs is one of the things that makes heart merry lifting hearts out of the cauldron of darkness that the enemies may have subjected people to and draws heart closer to God and his blessings.

Praying, hoping and trusting that you will be blessed with the song as you sing along with me and if you do not know the tune, I sincerely trust that God will bless your hearts, homes and all that is yours as you read the wordings of the newly composed song.

"New" Jerusalem-The Hoppers

Composed Song

1. New Jerusalem city of God

Which comes down from the heavens

From the God eternal Father

Special place for the redeemed


2. The first heaven and the first earth

Yea and the seas ‘ve pass’d away

No place could be found for them\

Paving way for new Jerusalem


3. This new Jerusalem is prepared

Yea as a bride that’s adorned

Forsooth for her own husband

There God dwelleth even with men


4. At the new Jerusalem

Which is the tabernacle of God

There God shall wipe tears away

From the eyes of his people


5. At the new Jerusalem

There shall be no more death there

Neither sorrow nor crying

For everything is become new


6. At the new Jerusalem

There shall be no more pain there

‘Cause former things are passed off

Behold all things ‘re become new


7. The new Holy Jerusalem

Has in her the glory of God

There is neither day nor night there

For Christ is the light in her


8. The new Holy Jerusalem

Is laid even with precious stones

And its gates are made of pearls

Its streets laid ‘ven with pure gold


9. The temple in the new Jerusalem

Is the Lord God almighty

And the Lamb that has been slain

Yea from foundation of the world


10. Gates of the new Jerusalem

Are neither shut by day nor night

‘Cause there is no day nor night

Glory and honor of nations flow into it


11. They shall in no wise enter

The new Jerusalem anything

That defiles neither workers

Of abomination nor liars


12. Those who ‘ll enter new Jerusalem

Are those whose names are written

Even in the lamb’s book of life

Those washed by the blood of the Lamb


13. New Jerusalem the holy city

There my soul loveth to be

There I aspire to get to

New Jerusalem city of God
