(Sung in Kalenjin, A Hymn)

Jerusalem, Jerusalem…

Mitei emet arak ne tilil kot (There is a holy place in Heaven above)
Ole mi boiboiyet ne bo iman (Where true Joy dwells)
Tiendos che kigesor ak kolos’ Laitoriat (The righteous sing and praise the King)
Nenyi torornatet ak teegisto (All Glory and honor belongs to Him)

Ongebe emonin, kayanichu (Believers, let us go to this place)
Ak kimutu alaka, kebe tugul (And bring others, to go with us)
Ongisub Yetindet ne immutech kipsengwet (Following Jesus, who takes us to heaven)
Si tun kemeny tugul ak Kwandanyo (That we may all live with our Lord)

Jesu ko Lapkeiyet, eng Kipsengwet (Jesus is the Heavenly Light)
Mamitei mesundei eng’ oloto (There is no darkness there)
Mi boiboiyet kityo, amu mimitei me-et (There is only Joy, for there is no death)
Ama mi chalwokto, emonoto (And there is no more sin, in that land)

Tun kemitei tugul taitab aruet (Soon we shall we be gathered before the Lamb)
Kilachi ngoro-ik che leelachen (Adorned in white robs)
Kilosu Jehovah, ah kegeere togennyi (Praising Jehovah, seeing Him face to face)
Nenyi torornatet, ak teegisto (Glory and Honor belongs to Him)

Mitei emet arak ne tilil kot (There is a holy place in Heaven above)
Ole mi boiboiyet ne bo iman (Where true Joy dwells)
Jerusalem, Jerusalem…

Ongebe emonin, kayanichu (Believers, let us go to this place)
Ak kimutu alaka, kebe tugul (And bring others, to go with us)

Kebe tugul (To go with us) x?
