With Courtesy to a Well-Sung Christian Hymn — NOW REVISED

Onward Jewish soldiers marching off to war
With the Magen David going on before.
God our faithful Master will lead against the foe,
Forward into battle, down with UNESCO.
Onward Jewish people fighting for the truth
Dismantle UN statements which are very couth
We must proclaim to all the world
That they may share our views.
Zion and Jerusalem belong to all the Jews.
For two thousand years we prayed, we wept, we mourned and grieved
And with the Almighty’s help in 1967
Our Holy Temple Mount was retrieved.
Our enemies were defeated and will be once again
As we unite our city, the spot for which we yen.
Keep the faith, my people, yield not to despair
Know that God is on our side, He is always there.
We will win out battles, raise our banner high
And Jewish pride and strength will show the world that
Onward Jewish soldiers marching off to war
With the Star of David going on before.
