Kò sí 'ru yi loke,
Níbẹ ni mo fẹ lọ. Amin 

Jerusalem on high

Jerusalem on high
My song and city is,
My home whene'er I die,
The center of my bliss:


Chorus: 
O happy place!
When shall I be,
My GOD, with Thee,
To see Thy Face?
There dwells my Lord, my King,
Judged here unfit to live;
There Angels to Him sing,
And lowly homage give:
The Patriarchs of old
There from their travels cease;
The Prophets there behold
Their longed-for Prince of Peace:
The LAMB's Apostles there
I might with joy behold;
The harpers I might hear
Harping on harps of gold;
The bleeding Martyrs, they
Within those courts are found,
Clothed in pure array,
Their scars with glory crowned:
Ah! woe is me! that I
In Kedar's tents here stay:
No place like that on high;
LORD, thither guide my way:
