Song Ya Sakan el ‘ali by the Rahbani brothers

Oh heavenly Father watch over us
Take care of us, of our land
Bring our brothers and our family
Home from this vast field
Destroyed by the sound of canons
Our hands raised towards you like leafless trees
On our knees in the fields, oh heavenly Father
On the threshold of our houses, protect them
We look to you, on our knees during the nights,
Become tears of the night, oh heavenly Father
The roofs of our houses have become granaries
Our doors are open to the light, and to peace
Oh heavenly Father watch over us
Bring peace (through the dove) until the last day.
s nothing before your creation
