Garrison Doles: Song Lyrics

I Showed Up In Jerusalem

(click title to read lyrics)
Words and music by Garrison Doles
I showed up in Jerusalem for the tabernacle feast
Jesus in the courtyard of the temple Pharisees
They were tryin’ to arrest him
They wanted to bring him in
But even though they tried
They could not lay a hand on him
 
There was this agenda posted at the door
No one would be wakin’ up the sleepy status quo
Jesus was standin’ right up and teachin’
He was out of their control
Said come to me
You who are thirsty in your soul
 
refrain
And you will be a stream of living water
Flowing through a dry and dusty land
Yes you will be a stream of living water
Holy Spirit wash you out
Like rain in a desert drought
Be a rushing mountain stream
Of living water
 
bridge
He was talking about livin’
About being alive
He was talking about every cell of your being
Just flooded with life
He was talking about throwing open the gates
Of eternity
And I swear he was looking right into my eyes
And I swear he was talkin’ to me
 
I showed up in Jerusalem on the celebration day
Jesus preaching to the crowds and I could not look away
It was him and the Holy Spirit
And they were puttin’ on quite a show
He said come to me
You who are thirsty in your soul
He said come to me
You who are thirsty in your soul
 
repeat refrain
