lyrics and music by Dovid Kerner
Link to Listen
Anticipation fills the air tonight
From the valley below up to the mountain heights
And in the city, where the people congregate.
The awesomeness of reality
The privilege of responsibility
Stir the embers, firing up a heart grown cold.
On a wind swept hill a fateful rendezvous
A voice cries out a world is born anew
"Bind the cords tighter father, lest this all be in vain"*.
Now the ram's horn tune rises steadily
Singing to the people that it's time to get free
Singing "freedom", to everyone with ears to hear.
*In the earliest Midrashim, Isaac cries out, imploring Abraham to bind him well lest his instinctive resistance blemish the sacrifice.
