Hearts To The East

With our hearts to the East we’re returning
And we learn to find peace in the journey
‘Cause we know we’re not alone
Every step that we take brings us closer to our home

The land of our forefathers (I will be there)
Promised to all generations (We all were there)
We made a sacred covenant (I will be there)
B’chol yom sheyavo (And we all will be there)
We know HaShem will hear our prayer

A message hidden in the Western Wall (I will be there)
In a language that we don’t recall (We all were there)
Distant relatives in foreign lands (I will be there)
Searching for the touch of friendly hands (And we all will be there)
We may not look alike
But someday we’ll reunite

With our hearts to the East we’re returning
And we learn to find peace in the journey
‘Cause we know we’re not alone
Every step that we take brings us closer to our home

From Phoenix to Jerusalem we’re never far apart
Our common traditions keep us bonded at the heart
We study the Torah, we remember who we are
We’re there for each other from the start

With our hearts to the East we’re returning
And we learn to find peace in the journey
‘Cause we know we’re not alone
Every step that we take brings us closer to our home

When we’re naked of our defenses (I will be there)
Freed of footprints in the earth (We all were there)
We are left with just the other (I will be there)
Mirroring one another’s worth (And we all will be there)
We are b’tselem elohim

With our hearts to the East we’re returning
And we learn to find peace in the journey
‘Cause we know we’re not alone
Every step that we take brings us closer to our home
Every step that we take brings us closer to our home
Bring us back to you, hadesh yameinu k-kedem
