Tune: "The Unclouded Day"
It was a great day in Je-ru-sa-lem.
Feast day and the peo-ple moved a-bout.
Mon-ey chang-ers were in the tem-ple there.
Je-sus in his ang-er drove them out.
Sheep were in this sac-red place.
Why these doves in this house of pray'r?
With a cord He drove all the sel-lers out.
O-ver-turned the bench-es that were there.
He said, "My house shall be called a house of pray'r,
But you have made it a den of thieves.
Then the mon-ey rolled as he cleared the court.
All was qui-et as the mer-chants leave.
Je-sus healed the blind and lame.
Ho-san-nas child-ish voi-ces raised.
Or-der was re-stored in the house of God.
From the lips of child-ren per-fect praise.
