Israel, where with joy comes sorrow
Where happiness is, pain is not far behind.
Israel is a place where though there is pain and suffering
There is a joy and peace not found anywhere else
Though there is crying and pain in many eyes
You can see the hope that comes
The Mothers whose sons and daughters are coming home on leave
Happy that they are coming home alive
Fathers weary after a day of work
Then remembers the family he has at home and brightens up
Children living, and growing in a country
That many hate and cannot understand why
Remembering that this is the Chosen land.
Israel, where through pain and suffering come
There is the hope that tomorrow brings
Hope that tomorrow will bring a better day.
