거룩한 성 (예루살렘)

나 어젯밤에 잘 때
한 꿈을 꾸었네
그 옛날 예루살렘 성에
곁에 섰더니
허다한 아이들이
그 묘한 소리로
주 찬미하는 소리
참 청아하도다
천군과 천사들이
화답함과 같이.

예루살렘 예루살렘
그 거룩한 성아
호산나 호산나
호산나 부르자

그 꿈이 다시 변하여
그 길은 고요코
호산나 찬미소리
들리지 않는다.
햇빛은 아주 어둡고
그 광경 참담해
이는 십자가에 달리신
그때의 일이라
이는 십자가에 달리신
그때의 일이라

예루살렘 예루살렘
그 거룩한 성아
호산나 호산나
호산나 부르자

그 꿈이 다시 변하여
이세상 다가고
그 땅을 내가 보니
저 유리바다와
그 후에 환한 영광이
다 창에 비치니
그 성에 들어가는자
참 영광이로다
낮이나 밤이 없으니
그 영광 뿐이라
그 영광 예루살렘성
영원한 곳이라
그 영광 예루살렘성
참 빛난 곳일세

예루살렘 예루살렘
그 거룩한 성아
호산나 노래하자 호산나 부르자
호산나 노래하자 호산나 호산나

The Holy City (Jerusalem)

Last night I lay a-sleeping
There came a dream so fair,
I stood in old Jerusalem
Beside the temple there.
I heard the children singing,
And ever as they sang,
Me thought the voice of angels
From heaven in answer rang.
Me thought the voice of angels
From heaven in answer rang.

Jerusalem! Jerusalem!
Lift up your gates and sing,
Hosanna in the highest!
Hosanna to your King!

And then me thought my dream was changed,
The streets no longer rang,
Hushed were the glad Hosannas
The little children sang.
The sun grew dark with mystery,
The morn was cold and chill,
As the shadow of a cross arose
Upon a lonely hill.
As the shadow of a cross arose
Upon a lonely hill.

Jerusalem! Jerusalem!
Hark! How the angels sing,
Hosanna in the highest!
Hosanna to your King!

And once again the scene was changed;
New earth there seemed to be;
I saw the Holy City
Beside the tideless sea;
The light of God was on its streets,
The gates were open wide,
And all who would might enter,
And no one was denied.
No need of moon or stars by night,
Or sun to shine by day;
It was the new Jerusalem
That would not pass away.
It was the new Jerusalem
That would not pass away.

Jerusalem! Jerusalem!
Sing for the night is o'er!
Hosanna in the highest!
Hosanna for evermore!

Mahalia Jackson was born in New Orleans, LA, on October 26, 1911 or 1912, and died of heart failure in Chicago on January 27, 1972. Mahalia Jackson has been acclaimed America's greatest gospel singer by world press and publicity. She is certainly the best known, with a career that included television, radio, and concerts. Her early repertoire leaned heavily upon songs of her Baptist beginnings such as Amazing Grace and The Day is Past and Gone. The strong musical life of New Orleans in the early 1900s made a profound impression upon the young Mahalia Jackson. She recorded her first record in May 1937 for Decca. From that point on, Jackson's talent and deep-rooted faith ensured that she had the whole world in her hands. Wilfred Mellers, in Gospel Women of the Night, says: 'The magnificent voice and the fervent faith are almost inseparable; a voice of such vibrancy, over so wide a range, creates a sound that is as all-embracing, as secure as the womb, from which singer and listener may be reborn.'
