O Israel
By Robert Loveman
    O ISRAEL, thy glory gleamed
      Through long ages long ago;
    O Israel, a David dreamed
      Within thy tents of snow;
Thy warriors wise, and brave, and good,        5
Thy women queens of womanhood,
A pillared cloud, and manna food,
    O Israel, sweet Israel.
    O Israel, again I see
      Thy chariot in the sky!        10
    The seed of Abraham shall be
      Through all eternity;
Our fathers’ faith, our fathers’ God,
The paths of peace wherein they trod,
With love, with truth, thy soul be shod,        15
    O Israel, sweet Israel.
