Chanukah has started the Jerusalem Jewish way,
Bless Israel and Jerusalem the Jewish way today.
Lift the veil, so that they know, You died so each can be,
Every one accepting you, present, past, future, be Sin-free.
Price paid 2,000 years ago, You hung and suffered on that tree,
I fail to understand how, Dear Lord, any would turn away from thee.
For them, not only did you die, You also died for me,
You came to Earth, to take on a life, of perfect mortality;
So you could pay the price I couldn't, that is what I see,
Only you can see us as perfect, blood cleansed, and family.
And yet, so many walk away, shrugging shoulder at your Grace,
The eternal life, they celebrate, will not be before your face.
Dear Lord God, that is so sad, and so eternal true,
Torment is the other, if they walk away from you.
