Lovers of Light

In our current days,
As in days gone by,
The world
Has been filled
With darkness.

We are Jews,
We are survivors,
We have been 
Through the dark,
Still we find the light.
Light comes in,
Light enters,
Light fills the space,
Fills our souls,
Infuses our beings.
Through song and dance,
With Torah and Tallit,
In the words which we speak,
In the prayers of our hearts,
We are lovers of light.
The world now,
Seems to have lost 
The light of promise,
The light of future,
The light of wonder.
We are Jews,
And we are duty-bound
To remind the world
That light never dies
As long as we all seek it.
