Daughters of Jerusalem (Listen, Calling for You)

Post by cnd » Fri Dec 30, 2016 6:55 am

Hi, I have an old gospel LP and one of the songs if called "DAUGHTERS OF JERUSALEM." After a lot of searching I finally managed to find some lyrics online for it here:
http://jacksonsnyder.com/arc/Divine%20Name/A%20Song%20of%20Songs.htm


The only problem is, the only verse I had trouble with sounds different from this one and all other lyrics I've found

"Daughters of Jerusalem, my fairest in array," sounds to me more like "might owe its sin array" but is pronounced mre like "my ??chowest?? in array" or something like that. Does this sound familiar to anyone else?

Thanks

Hi cnd

It would be "my choicest in array" that you're hearing

What is the title of the old gospel LP and what information is attributed to this song

THE CALVARY ECHOS SING THEIR FAVORITE SONGS

It credits the song as anonymous, but that is very questionable, since they listed nearly every song as anonymous when the vast majority were, in fact, not. That being said, the best I could find it was by Afton Newsome, but I don't have any concrete evidence to support that.

And though choicest would make since, there is DEFINITELY a "w" in the middle of "chowest," but that doesn't seem to make sense

The way they sing it, it almost sounds like "my toewis in array" (as in tow - wiss), or maybe even "much owe is sin array"

My best guess now is "much owe us in array"

If you would like, I could email the file to you or put it up online or something and you can try your hand at it. It's the very first verse of the song in this version,

Yes cnd

In searching I ran across reference to Afton Newsome but ruled that out
as the lyrics are entirely different than the ones in the link you posted

If you put it up online we can all weigh in and "crack the case"
We'll look forward to you posting the link to The Calvary Echoes

There is the link

Here is where I got the Afton Newsom credit. The lyrics are similar but in a different order

Here are my lyrics so far:

DAUGHTERS OF JERUSALEM

Daughters of Jerusalem, my ??chowest?? in array (might owe its sin array)
Come lay upon my bosom, where the one disciple lay
Daughters of Jerusalem, it is the close of day
Listen, I'm calling to you

I've sent the Holy Ghost and Fire to gather into One
My virgins fair, the undefiled, our Father's will be done
But you must run the race, love, until the race is won
Listen, I'm calling to you

Calling to you, my love, listen, I'm calling to you
Calling to you, my love, listen, I'm calling to you

REPEAT

Daughters of Jerusalem

Daughters of Jerusalem, my lovely Shulamite.
Come hide within my lovely arms for onward comes thee night.
Daughters of Jerusalem, you are my pure delight
Listen, I’m calling to you.
I’m waiting at the lattice door open and let me in,
For I am ravished with thine eyes Thou art glorious within.
Put on thy strength O Zion, My reign will soon begin,
Listen I’m calling to you!

Cho.
Calling to you, Listen I’m calling to you my love,
Calling to you, listen I’m calling to you.

Daughters of Jerusalem, come follow after me,
I’ll place you in the three in one, the Holy Trinity.
Daughters of Jerusalem, I long to look on thee,
Listen, I’m calling to you.
I’m waiting at the lattice door open and let me in,
For I am ravished with thine eyes Thou art glorious within.
Put on thy strength O Zion, My reign will soon begin,
Listen I’m calling to you!

Cho.
Calling to you, Listen I’m calling to you my love,
Calling to you, listen I’m calling to you.

I remember the song well from my childhood. A traveling evangelist and family, who became close friends with our family, sung it many times during the years we were friends.

I believe the part,
“ I’m waiting at the lattice door open and let me in,
For I am ravished with thine eyes Thou art glorious within.”
Should be eyes, “their glorious light within”

I have hand written lyrics to many of their songs so I’m going to search it out.

Wow, this song really brought back memories from over 50 years ago for me.
