Defenders of Zion

Tags: Zionism, Jerusalem, Judaism, Inspiration and Hope

by Steve Schuster

LYRICS:

Every century in history
(This city, our city)
Under siege by legions, testing our allegiance, and we lost some
(Yeah we lost some, but…)
Jerusalem would not succumb
Jerusalem’s not a usual one
As old as Methuselah, she stands at the crucible, she stands irreducible
On tears that we wept
And promises we kept

Oh yes we will, yes we will
When you will it you fulfill it!
(When you will it you fulfill it!)
Still here, you can’t kill it
This city on a hill, it stands proud like a lion
On a golden horizon
That we live or we die on
Cuz in terms of what’s right we stand for Yerushalayim
And by words, or by might we are defenders of Zion
(Yeah by words, or by might we are defenders of Zion)

All the torment we underwent from those who rise against us
And those who try to fence us in perplexing arguments
Call us illegitimate but we will not lament
(No!)
We will not lament
(We)
Will remain unbent in our defense of every dream
Every dream we’ve ever dreamt

Oh yes we will, yes we will…

All the years that we wept
We were subject to neglect
Swept along by history’s tide
Still we kept our dream alive
Because survival was vital
Our tribe lived to fight all together united
Til together we ignited
A new flame on an old claim
(This city, our city)
Which we regained
(This city, our city)
Yeah we regained it (this city), we proclaim it (our city), and now, today, together (our city) we sustain it!

Oh yes we will, yes we will…
