IF I FORGET THEE
O' JERUSALEM
by Eva
If I forget thee, O' Jerusalem,
My mother and my spouse;
If I forget thine ancient walls; 
If I forget G-D's House;
If I forget my pledge to thee;
If I forget my birth;
If I forget my life, my soul,
My identity, and my worth;
Then who am I? 
A wanderer without a home,
A wayward child hopeless,
Fearful and all alone.
For in thee, Jerusalem, I live and breathe
As a nation by G-D set apart.
Would I forget thee?  Could I forget thee?
Thou art engraved within my heart.
