A Psalm Beyond the Silences


If they could be here now,

The six million murdered then,

They would see survivors

Praying in their memory...

A psalm beyond the silence.


If they could be here now,

Those too, too soon taken,

They would share this proud prayer

Of the children of truth...

A psalm beyond the silence.


If they could be here now,

Those who would have loved us,

They'd hear words in our hearts:

“L'chaim!... Yes!... Never again!...”

A psalm beyond that silence.


if they could be here now,

The kin we should have known,

They would say: “Love all truth,

We can choose to bear it...”

A psalm beyond their silence.


If they could be here now,

Those once too often chosen,

They could choose, as we do,

To pray through joy and pain...

A psalm beyond Thy silence.
