Prayer for Jewish Soldiers

To all the Jewish Boys

who stand up tall

protecting native land and right to live

to ancient warriors of Jewish soil

who guard its treasures

and the Bible sand,

 

My love I send to you

as you were one,

and love of all the

mothers of my clan,

May our joined hope

please keep you safe

and spread protection

over each young man.
