Jerusalem Day
A prayer for Jerusalem

Lyrics and music: Shaike Paikov


All the eyes of Israel

Carry a private prayer to you

Jerusalem, Jerusalem

Allow me to sing to you

A prayer

Jerusalem, Jerusalem,

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

Jerusalem, Jerusalem


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

The gentiles?

Jerusalem, Jerusalem....
