Stars O’er Kfar Aza

Spirits rise over Israel.
A night sky come to life.

Do you see the stars are there
With souls in hold o’er Kfar Aza
Redly dreaming down ere day
Those the suffered hearts begone
By hellthings haunting at the dawn

Do you see the stars are there
Hath they our angels swift to guard
So here springs hope at night’s prevail
Ere sweetest things farewell and fly
Fear none for them for evers nigh

Oh do you see the stars are there
If nay do ye to me but all despair
Saith where then shall angels end
How other than by holy hands
Art we undone from promised lands

Oh do you see the stars are there
Souls set in thrall to light but lo
This time don’t let my people go
Allow them lay upon the night
Ere sprites spy on set them to sight

Oh do you see the stars are there
With souls in hold o’er Kfar Aza
For naught do not they e’er unwake
Anemone crowns unsow our sorrow
A thousand flowers live on the morrow

For do you see the stars are there
With hymns in lie their spangled clutches
Who sing our sisters knew not scourge
Nor fear upon their breathing’s last
But were to skylit fancy dancing cast

For do you see the stars are there
True within her rhythm rings
Did death know she to giveth wings
Oh Shani drift do o’er the skies
And pray thy soul but sleeps to rise

For do you see the stars are there
With souls in hold o’er Kfar Aza
Our blood doth fare there with them
To ward away what dooms to come
In stars o’er Israel for eons young
