A Place

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.
