Our camps are protected day and night
By doing the Mitzvoswe’ll win this war
And there won’t be Golus anymore.
Don’t waste your time bothering me
We’re marching on to victory
With Moshiach speedily.
A vision so divine
Reveals a nation yet to be
Beside them all the world would pale
For they are Yisroel
A shining light for all to see.
Pledge their love forever
Tying there knot at har sinai
The dawn was the land
Of milk and honey and
The joy it would bring as time went by
From Egypt liberation through the splitting see
The nation of the land retreating fearfully
The might walls did crumble at the shofar blow
Yericho fell and finally our home land was in view.
Yerusholayim, we will never leave you
Now and forever hear and soul we need you
Our life and our prayer the dream that lives inside of us
City of our fathers we will never let you go.
Once upon a mountain high
He heard the angels cry
As they behold the akeida
And knowing what his father taught
Dovid hamelech bought
The holy mountain moriyah.
A bais hamikdosh build of purest gold
Kings would come from far and wide
And coast away their pride
They did proclaim to young and old
There’s only one Rebono Shel Olam
If we had only listened we would still be one
With eretz Yisroel and all that we have lost
How soon did we forget it all and oh at what a cost.
Now it’s been two thousand years
And as we fight the tears
We miss you dearly one and all
The agonies we’ve survived
And yet we still arrive
To find the answers at your walls
We fought so hard to make you home
For you and ours alone
No matter what the world may say
We will not forsake you no they’ll never take you
For we are your soul and till this day
Deep inside our hearts we know that it will be
We’ll rise again for all the world to see
And as we do our bayis will descend in fire
To light the streets again and to fulfill the worlds desire.
At The Threshold Of New Times
At the threshold of new times
We await the final sign
One more step beyond these doors
With this strength we’re in command
Every door now brakes way
It’s up to me and you
The power of simcha will prove Geulah true.
Thousands of voices our goal united
Passed and present years
With rhapsody of joy Moshiach’s here.
My Zeide lived with us in my parents’ home
He used to laugh he put me on his knee
He spoke about his life in Poland
He spoke but with a bitter memory.
And he spoke about the soldiers who would beat him
That they burned down
But Zeide made us laugh Zeide make us sing
His eyes lit up when he would teach me Torah
And as winter went by
Then summer came along
I went to camp to run and play
And when I came back home they said "Zeide’s gone"
And all his books were packed and stored away.
I don’t know how or why it came to be
Many winters went by many summers came along
They say golus is a blessing in disguise
A greater light follows the night
But it’s been so long, it feels so wrong
It’s not where we belong.
Brothers and friends,
We must bring this golus to an end
Our urgent cries will pierce the skies
Tell Hashem, ad mosai - till when.
Bring down the curtain on the show, good-bye
You’re lasting much to long no one can deny
Enough is enough it’s time to say good-bye.
We are your prisoners no more, good-bye
You can not stop us now, so don’t even try
Good-bye, good-bye, it’s time to say good-bye.
Everything is you and you are everything
But the golus lies and blinds our eyes
Why can’t we see Your majesty undisguised.
All the angels tremble when they hear You cry
For every Jew, all we’ve been through
Till we are home You’re in golus too.
Known for its beauty, splendor and grace
Come let us find the words to describe her
She is not like any other place.
Who lived by this very road
Step into a shul you almost can hear
The words of the sages speaking
The wisdom of old.
Where else in this world can you find a wall
Whenever you touch it - it touches you
Reach for its stones
They’re moist with the tears
Of our hopes and our dreams that we know
Will soon come true.
There is a story behind each stone
But when you return, your heart will rejoice
As bruchim haboim appears
And you know you’re home.
