Rejoice for Jerusalem,
     all you who loved me!
Rejoice with Jerusalem,
     all who mourned me!

Nurse that I may reassure you,
Feed that I may nourish you,
Suckle from my ample breasts,
Drink deeply from my holy font:
     That you may grow and flourish;
     That you may know my love;
     That you may feel cherished;
     And know that you're precious.

As a mother, I will comfort you.
In strong arms you'll find shalom.
On my hip you'll learn about life.
     You'll grow like a summer meadow!
     You will feel my hand within yours!
     You'll know me, and fear no one!

Soft blush of grace -
Glory upon her face.

in the garden
the odd is honored
- not in junior-high
