Let's roll this sovereignty train!

Dedicated to the Jewish People           

Once upon a time was a people called out.

Unique this one, let there be no doubt.

The goyim wondered, why the Jew?

It’s plain to see, He anointed you. 

Led by a traveler from Ur of the Chaldeans,

No longer a polytheist, not this Aramean.

Sleep, dream, awake.  To you I bestow.

He was here and I did not know.

Look far and wide; this land is your land.

Live here forever.  Your seed will be grand.

From Dan to Beer Sheva, this land I give you,

But you must take it, as I have commanded you.

Cross the river, walk all over the land.

None will defeat you; leave them lie in the sand.

Live here forever.  I give you My word.

Deliver My message, throughout the whole world.

I am the Lord G-d Who brought you out.

No longer slaves; now you have clout.

Take these words as the master key,

To teach the goyim wherever they be.

Al tira!  Al tiri! Al tiru!

Never fear.  I’ll be with you.

G-d of all gods, King of all kings,

Throughout the world, may His praises ring.

יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵי צְבָאוֹת מִי־כָמוֹךָ

חֲסִין יָהּ וֶאֱמוּנָתְךָ סְבִיבוֹתֶיךָ:

O Lord G-d Almighty, who is like You?

You are mighty, O Lord, and your faithfulness surrounds You. 

Forget Me? In Bavel, in galut shall you roam.

A lacuna.  A Talmud. Now come back home.

A Shoah, a Shoah.  How can it be?

The world?  ‘Tis plain to see.

I love you, I love you.  The goyim not.

Don’t be surprised if they treat you like snot.

Remember My words, I promised you.

This land is yours, now stay here like glue.

I created ha’aretz; it’s Mine to give.

Sans strings attached, so there you may live.

From Dan to Beer Sheva, this land I give you.

But you must take it, as I have commanded you.

Why do you tremble?  Why hesitate?

My way is straight, so that you may skate.

The future is yours.  Al tira! Al tiru!

Mark My words.  So very true.

Believe them or not; I give you free will.

Fail the test, and you’ll be going downhill.

This land is your land, ‘tis so plain to see,

From the Jordan River clear to the sea.

Take it.  It’s yours.  Pursue the attack.

As I have told you, I have your back.

When I created you, I gave you a brain.

Now use it, please.  Let’s roll this Ribonut train!
