A SONG FOR PEACEJacob RotblitYair RosenblumLet the sun riseAnd give the morning light,The purest prayerWill not bring us back.He whose candle was blown outAnd was buried in the dust,A bitter cry won't wake himWon't bring him back.Nobody will return usFrom the dead dark pitHere - neither the victory cheerNor songs of praise will help.So sing only a song for peace,Do not whisper a prayer.Better sing a song for peaceWith a big shout.Let the sun penetrateThrough the flowers,Don't look backwardLeave 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 dayBecause 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.
