Freedom and Dignity…25th. day of Palestinian Hunger Fast

Salt of the earth
Lead me to the water

Noble sons and daughters
Of this
Free earth
That spreads through
Your mother’s land
All the birds
And olive trees
Prostrate
At your feet
At the hills
Of resistance

Salt of the earth
Lead me to the water

Heroic fathers and mothers
Of the torch bearers
Between the links
Of your shackles
I see the light
From the Galilee
Baptizing wounded doves

Salt of the earth
Lead me to the water

Valiant Strugglers
For liberation and self determination

Freedom and Dignity

Over the horizon

Salt of the earth
Lead me to the water
