Poor Jerusalem Lyrics

    Neither you, Simon, nor the fifty thousand,
    Nor the Romans, nor the Jews,
    Nor Judas, nor the twelve
    Nor the priests, nor the scribes,
    Nor doomed Jerusalem itself
    Understand what power is,
    Understand what glory is,
    Understand at all,
    Understand at all.
    If you knew all that I knew, my poor Jerusalem,
    You'd see the truth, but you close your eyes.
    But you close your eyes.
    While you live, your troubles are many, poor Jerusalem.
    To conquer death, you only have to die.
    You only have to die.
