(Lyrics) Psalm 87 Gates of Zion Song Version 1
Words and Music by Leslie aka Jesse Hughes ©
(Adapted from Psalm 87)

He has set his foundation on the holy mountain
The LORD loves the gates of Zion
More than all the dwellings of Jacob
Glorious things are said of you
O city of God
Selah

"I will record Rahab and Babylon
Among those who acknowledge me--
Philistia too, and Tyre, along with Cush--
And will say, 'This one was born in Zion.'"

Indeed, of Zion it will be said,
"This one and that one were born in her
And the Most High himself will establish her"
The LORD will write in the register of the peoples:
"This one was born in Zion"
Selah

As they make music they will sing
"All my fountains are in you"

I am a New Order, New Age and New Covenant Gospel Rock and Roller preaching the Gospel to the world in the tradition of Dylan and Springsteen. My songs metaphorically interpret the Bible and book of Revelation, helping to shine a light upon Bob Dylan’s lyrical clues. I serve the Spirit of the Lord, and dedicate my eternal Star to serving my King the Holy Spirit of Truth (Isaiah chapter 11 and 2 Corinthians 3:17) and proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor, the day of God’s Salvation and the New Covenant (Luke 4:18-19, Isaiah chapter 61, 2 Corinthians 6:1-2, Jeremiah 31:31-34, Hebrews 8:7-13) by measuring the temple, unsealing the scroll in the book of Revelation and preaching the true metaphoric interpretation of the Gospel to the world inspired by Mt 13:35 and Ps 78:2 that states “I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter things hidden since the creation of the world."

Gospel references for these songs and spoken words are the same as my recent song and spoken word posts:
(Please note also that a Jew and Israelite in a metaphoric interpretation of the Gospel is not a person of Jewish heritage, it is a metaphor for a part of all of us that is a Jew within and another part of us that is a Gentile within -see Romans 2:28-29- and how these two parts become one in Ephesians 2:14-22, Ezekiel 37:15-17 and Romans 3:27-31, also how there are those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars- see Revelations 3:9)
