In schā'a llāh

J'ai vu l'Orient dans son écrin
avec la lune pour bannière
et je comptais en un quatrain
chanter au monde sa lumière

Mais quand j'ai vu Jérusalem
coquelicot sur un rocher
j'ai entendu un requiem
quand sur lui je me suis penché

Ne vois-tu pas humble chapelle
toi qui murmure paix sur la terre
que les oiseaux cachent de leurs ailes
ces lettres de feu : danger frontière

Le chemin mène à la fontaine
tu voudrais bien remplir ton seau
arrête-toi Marie-Madeleine
pour eux ton corps ne vaut pas l'eau

In schā'a llāh, in schā'a llāh
in schā'a llāh, in schā'a llāh.

Et l'olivier pleure son ombre
sa tendre épouse son amie
qui repose sous les décombres
prisonnière en terre ennemie

Sur une épine de barbelé
le papillon guette la rose
les gens sont si écervelés
qu'ils me répudieront si j'ose

Dieu de l'enfer ou Dieu du ciel
toi que te trouve où bon te semble
sur cette terre d'Israël
il y a des enfants qui tremblent

In schā'a llāh, in schā'a llāh
in schā'a llāh, in schā'a llāh.

Les femmes tombent sous l'orage
demain le sang sera lavé
la route est faite de courage
une femme pour un pavé

Mais oui j'ai vu Jérusalem
coquelicot sur un rocher
j'entends toujours ce requiem
lorsque sur lui je suis penché

Requiem pour six millions d'âmes
qui n'ont pas leurs mausolées de marbre
et qui malgré le sable infâme
ont fait pousser six millions d'arbres

In schā'a llāh, in schā'a llāh
in schā'a llāh, in schā'a llāh.

In my circles the guy is forgotten, even more so than Roy Black and Freddy Quinn. But in my childhood this Italian Belgian was big. And in '67 one could still make and sing songs like that and be immensely popular.

Or take, for example, this one by Naomi Shemer, melody adapted and extended from a Basque lullaby, that already all tank-drivers in the land of Israel sang and peacenik Ury Avnery tried more than once to make the new hymn of the country.

And though the song is still very popular in all Jewish communities of the wide world, outside of Israel its original singer Shuli Natan (Video from '68) is as forgotten as Salvatore Adamo in my circles and probably outside of Belgium. Moments lost in time like tears in rain. And, may we add, it still holds that while there is a soul in prison, we are not free.

Finally, as now we are still in need of a bit more of consolace and hope, here's a link to an older post of ours about a stroll to Caeserea and the essentials of this earth, the lyrics of which had been made before or during the biggest war of them all. Sholem, in schā'a llāh!

 

Das weckt ganz alte Erinnerungen! <3
