שמע - Lyrics

He raised his hand to wave goodbye
Saw the pain in mothers eyes
Who left her little precious boy of four
In a citadel of ash and stone that preached a faith unlike his own
Perhaps he just may yet survive this war
In the shadows stood a man in black
My child He Said you must not look back
Yet one image lingered the tears on her
face and mothers words from their last embrace
Shema Shema Yisroel
Know that there is
But One God Above
When you feel pain
When you rejoice
Know how he longs to hear your voice
Hashem Elokeinu
Hashem Echad
Deep within the iron gates
Far from the stench of war and hate
He knew not of a world gone in sin
You must believe us he was told
Our faith alone can save his soul
Please let us heal your wounds and ease your pain
He tried not to forget his past his home
But he was so very young and ALL alone
Once visions of a Shtetl
Once vivid and clear
Began to fade and all but disappear
Shema Shema Yisroel
Know that there is
But One God Above
When you feel pain
When you rejoice
Know how he longs to hear your voice
Hashem Elokeinu
Hashem Echad
The winds of war had finally passed
One man took on the sacred task
To bring the scattered jewish children home
He travelled far from place to place
A quest to re-ignite the faith
Of those sent into hiding long ago
He entered the fortress grey and cold
Your kind is not among us he was told
Hashem above he whispered
Please dont let me fail
As he began to sing Shema Yisroel!
Shema Shema Yisroel
Know that there is but one God above
When you feel pain
When you rejoice
Know how he longs to hear your voice
Hashem Elokeinu
Hashem Echad
Shema Shema Yisroel
Know that there is but one God above
When you feel pain
When you rejoice
Know how he longs to hear your voice
Hashem Elokeinu
Hashem Elokeinu
Hashem Echad
Shema Shema Yisroel
Know that there is but
But one God above
When we feel pain
When we rejoice
Know how he longs to hear our voice
Hashem Elokeinu
Hashem Echad
Hashem Elokeinu
Hashem Echad
