FOR  JERUSALEM'S SAKE!
by Eva

How can I rest serenely in a strange and foreign land,
Knowing Eretz Yisrael is in dire need of a helping hand?

How can I remain silent when love's flame within me burns?
How can I turn my eyes away from the land my spirit yearns?

Am I my brother's keeper? Or do I turn away a deafened ear
To the sound of distant drums, as storm clouds are drawing near?

Oh what bonds in unity love can never break,
Where hearts and souls unite as one for Jerusalem's sake!
