A prayer for Jerusalem
Lyrics and music: Shaike Paikov
All the eyes of Israel
Carry a private prayer to you
Allow me to sing to you
Pray for our wellbeing
For peace for all of Israel
As a child I shall remember you
How father in a prayer shawl blessed you
Since then, for many years
I have dreamed with thousands of brothers
Of the day on which I will return
To see you
The fortresses of all the kings
Where are they, my beauty, the prophets?
Will they hear?
Have my people known suffering?
Who amongst them will understand
