The Children of Israel

                               

                               Masada will not fall again

                                                Yehuda Amichai

 

 

The time has come to give your hand                                  

To young men and women in the Promised Land              

They are the holy remnant                                                     

And they are the ones the good Lord has sent                   

 

Now is the time to praise them

There in Sderot or in Jerusalem

For they are the salt of heaven

Joshua’s children come once again

 

This is the land of which the bible tells

The land that speaks when struck by rain and shells

These are the children of Israel

Honoured be the memory of those who fell

 

And these are the children of sacrifice

Who raise up the temple that was broken twice

They are the seed of the future

And they are the army of the brave and pure

 

Read what the poet has written

That our Masada will not fall again

The children stand at the ramparts

O blesséd be their spirits, blesséd be their hearts
