A song composed for Israel Independence day, 1978
See the Fire
See the fire, the bonfire is burning
My heart is drawn to the heroes of the people
Who fought for their freedom
For the the land which gathers the people.
The captivity is annulled
In the land of our longings
It is up to me with my two hands
My dreams, indeed, to fulfill.
See the fire is burning
My God, enthuse my heart
To overcome and to live
And to receive life.
