lyrics

Oh, the sun is hidin'
Over the dark horizon
No matter how long the night
The day is sure to come

(Arabic)
Salaam, as-Salaam-Alaikum
Salaam, as-Salaam-Alaikum
Salaam, as-Salaam-Alaikum
Salaam, as-Salaam-Alaikum

Hoping for a storm to come
Waiting for the river to rise
Looking for a ladder to climb
Waiting on the change of tides

Hoping with a heart that’s broken
Waiting for a door to open
Listening for a song to sing
Knowing that the heart is wise

(Hebrew)
Shalom, shalom aleichem
Shalom, shalom aleichem
Shalom, shalom aleichem
Shalom, shalom aleichem

Hope is a fragile thing
It flies on broken wings
There’s no dream so lost
It can't be found again

Oh don’t hold your silence
Shout it louder than sirens
Shout it louder than violence
Rise on broken wings

(Aramaic)
Shlomo, shlomo 'alaykhu
Shlomo, shlomo 'alaykhu
Shlomo, shlomo 'alaykhu
Shlomo, shlomo 'alaykhu

Oh, the sun is hidin'
Over the dark horizon
No matter how long the night
The day is sure to come
