Standing on Jerusalem’s walls
I see the world walking by

Ancient Egypt conquered
Slaying, persecuting, destroying
A vast empire for thousands of years
God delivered and the walls still stand

Babylon came, they cursed and screamed
We’re gonna bury you
The walls witnessed
God’s hand of judgment, Babylon disappeared

Philistia persecuted Saul and David
Bringing Israel to its knees again and again
An evil people who discounted God
Their hand was weak, the walls still stand

Ethiopia sent soldiers to all
Many died scaling God’s walls
Jerusalem, Oh Jerusalem
Your walls still stand

The Romans came crucifying Jesus
They tore down God’s wall
Jesus rebuilt it
Now we stand and see the world
Jesus is Lord, Lord of all
