OR VIY'RUSHALAYIM 
OR VEYERUSHALAYIM 

LIGHT AND JERUSALEM 
 

The silence drops again beneath the skies of evening,
Just like an eagle swooping from the rocky hills,
And, like a flaming sword, the crimson sun above me
Is coloring the towers and the walls.

I saw a city wrapped in light
And all the rainbow colors rise around me,
And like a harp of many strings it gives delight,
I see a city wrapped in light.

And from the pine-treed hills, the shade is slowly creeping
Like a secret lover to the houses one by one,
And from the windows twinkle out in dazzling splendor
A thousand lights reflected from the silver moon.

I saw a city wrapped in light...

And now the night's last watch is ending in the quiet,
And in the velvet sky the last pale glow of night,
And dawn is reddening the golden dome of morning
With warm and tender touch of early light.

I saw a city wrapped in light...
