Happy 62nd birthday Israel!

After remembering with Harel Skaat's music on Yom Hazikaron.... let's wish a happy 62nd birthday* to Israel with one of his songs on Yom Haatzmaut!

If the waters are raging
And your life is so hard
Don't let your spirit fall
Come, discover yourself
Within you there is great strength

Like an everlasting fountain
Hand in hand, like a repeating song
Your two eyes in mine
They are an endless strength
They are light in the darkness
Hand in hand,
If only you'll give me your hand
Hand in hand,
We'll march down the entire road
Hand in hand,
If only you'll give me your hand
A hand, if only you'll give it to me
Hand in hand,
Down the whole length of the road
Hand in hand

Hand in hand, for lovers
There's no hope for those who are alone
Hand in hand, for the soldiers
Who are returning home again
They're returning home again

Hand in hand for the depressed
Sad-faced, wondering
To the light in the distance
To the light in the heavens
To the hope in dreams

* Israel's independence was proclaimed on May 14, 1948 according to the Gregorian calendar, which, according to the Hebrew calendar was Iyar 5. Israeli holidays follow the Hebrew calendar.
