Loving is another way of living

Song of a Hebrew

 .

Working is another way of praying

You plant in Israel the soul of a tree.

You plant in the desert the spirit of gardens.

 .

Praying is another way of singing.

You plant in the tree the soul of lemons.

You plant in the gardens the spirit of roses.

 .

Singing is another way of loving.

You plant in the lemons the spirit of your son.

You plant in the roses the soul of your daughter.

 .

Loving is another way of living.

You plant in your daughter the spirit of Israel.

You plant in your son the soul of the desert.
