The violins on Jerusalem
The violin player in the pedestrian mall
He marveled at the old melody.
The sound rising from the instrument
Inspired the listeners
It went up and floated on the roofs
Itwalked in every corner of the sidewalks
And already a boy joined the melody
And an old man, too.
Mercy read the melody
Pity for the oppressed.
This is the strength of the city
Giving charity to the poor.
