The fearful truth

Yiddish spoken here my love my dear

You must know I’m nearly always here

But human love cannot wipe out all fear

For fantasies of monsters with cruel leers

Simplify the structures of the world

Exonerate the leaders who have failed

Say it’s just the Jews who are to blame

Jesus was a Jew who called us home

Can any State succeed without the whole?

Can human love be bought by force alone?

Force destroys the trust of every soul.

Where is the answer, where the care that molds?

Yiddish was destroyed when noone spoke

In defence of Jews and other folk

For the Yiddish speakers met their death

Evil rose up with neglected breath

We must not read the News nor be distressed

Listen to the humble, then confess
