Song of Peace

Reader comment on item: War & Islam with Daniel Pipes

Submitted by mz ravin black (United States), Jun 6, 2008 at 22:06

Let the sun rise and give the morning light

The purest prayer will not bring back

He whose candle has been snuffed out and was buried in the dust

A bitter cry won't wake him won't bring him back

Nobody will return to us from the dead dark pit

Here neither the victory cheers nor songs of prayer will help

So sing only a song for peace

Do not whisper a prayer

Better sing a song for peace

With a great shout.

A jewish song found in a Rabbi's diary from the Holocaust
