Birth and Circumcision
You are A Wonder

Chava Alberstein

Every moment that we live

Is a new moment

Every moment that we live

There is nothing like it in the universe

There has never been anything like it in the world

And there never will be anything like it in the world

At school?

They teach us that

Two and another two

Are four

And that Paris is the capital of France….

When will they teach us what is here and now

We need to tell each of them:

Do you know what you are –

You are a wonder

You are the one and only

You are a wonder

In the entire world

There is no other child exactly like you

You are a wonder

You are the one and only

And look at your body –

What a wonder it is

Your legs, your arms, your quick fingers

The way you move

You are a wonder

You could be Shakespeare

Michael-Angelo, Beethoven

You are a wonder!

You have the ability to do everything

Yes, you are a wonder

And when you grow up –

Will you be able then to harm another person

Who like you is a wonder

He is also the one and only

He is also a wonder!

You must respect each other

You must work

We must all work

In order to make our world

Great for our children

There is nothing more natural than love of the homeland

Why would love stop at the border?

You are a wonder….
