Rabin Memorial Day
A Song For Peace

Lyrics: Yankale Rotblit

Melody: Yair Rosenblum

Let the sun rise

And give the morning light,

The purest prayer

Will not bring us back.

 

He whose candle was blown out

And was buried in the dust,

A bitter cry won't wake him

Won't bring him back.

 

Nobody will return us

drom the dead dark pit

Here - neither the victory cheer

Nor songs of praise will help.

 

So sing only a song for peace,

Do not whisper a prayer.

Better sing a song for peace

With a big shout.

 

Let the sun penetrate

Through the flowers,

Don't look backward

Leave those who departed.

 

Lift your eyes with hope,

Not through the rifle sights.

Sing a song for love,

And not for wars.

 

Don't say the day will come,

Bring the day

Because it is not a dream,

And within all the city's squares,

Cheer only peace.

 

So sing only a song for peace,

Do not whisper a prayer.

Better sing a song for peace,

With a big shout.

 

So sing only a song for peace....
