Re'eh ha'Esh

[See the Fire]

Israeli flag


David Barnett

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.

hebrew text

The captivity is annulled

In the land of our longings

It is up to me with my two hands

My dreams, indeed, to fulfill.

hebrew text

See the fire is burning

My God, enthuse my heart

To overcome and to live

And to receive life.
