Thread Name: Origins: History of 'Run, Come See Jerusalem'
Subject: Lyric: Run come see Jerusalem?
I presume this comes up regularly, but I couldn't find "Run Come See Jerusalem" in the database. Where could I find the complete lyrics?

This is the islands shipwreck song, not a hymn:

There was three sails leaving at the harbor,

Run come see

They were the Ethel and the Myrtle and Pretoria,

Run come see Jerusalem.
