Exile And Redemption 

Long ago, the Prophets had their dreams

In the gardens of Jerusalem

The children laughed by their Father's side

They ran away, and so He had to hide

 

But one day we'll live in a land of our own

The children will all come home

To the place where we belong

 

Night will turn into day

Oh, we'll come from so far away

After waiting for so long

 

So many tears when we said goodbye

There've been so many tears in our exile

And how many times have I heard you cry

For "Next year in Jerusalem"

 

And now, we're livin' in a land of our own

The children have all come home

After waiting for so long

 

The deserts have turned into streams

It’s like livin' in a dream

After waiting for so long

 

Night has turned into day

Oh, we've come from so far away

After waiting for so long
