     12 And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry: 13 And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet. 14 And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it. 15 And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves; 16 And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple. 17 And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves. 18 And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine. 19 And when even was come, he went out of the city.(KJV)

1. O’er Jerusalem Thou weepest 
In compassion, dearest Lord. 
Love divine, of love the deepest, 
O’er Thine erring Israel poured, 
Crieth out in bitter moan: 
“O loved city, hadst thou known 
This thy day of visitation, 
Thou wouldst not reject salvation.” 

2. By the love Thy tears are telling, 
O Thou Lamb for sinners slain, 
Make my heart Thy temple-dwelling, 
Purged from every guilty stain. 
Oh, forgive, forgive, my sin! 
Cleanse me, cleanse me, Lord, within! 
I am Thine since Thou hast sought me, 
Since Thy precious blood hath bought me. 

3. O Thou Lord of my salvation, 
Grant my soul Thy blood-bought peace. 
By Thy tears of lamentation 
Bid my faith and love increase. 
Grant me grace to love Thy Word, 
Grace to keep the message heard, 
Grace to own Thee as my Treasure, 
Grace to love Thee without measure.
