May It Be

footsteps in sand
To our friends and family
From the windswept Golan
To the sands of the Arava:
We hold you in our hearts
We hold your children in our hearts
Our fate is bound up in yours.
And to the parents and children
From Ramallah to Gaza City
Who also do not wish for war –
But we love this land with you
We pray for better with you
And we yearn for peace with you.
God, with all the desperation of our hearts we plead: may it be true that peace will yet come.
رح يجي السلام علينا وعلى كل العالم | עֹוֹד יַבֹא שַׁלוֹֹם עַלֵינוּ וְעַל כֻלַם
Od yavo shalom aleinu v’al kulam | Rah yiji a-salaam alaina w’ala kul il-alaam
