Become the person that you want to be,
Always faithful to your better self,
The one you must be honest with, or else*
Miss the grace of inner unity.
If you don't have faith, then that's your truth,
Though you don't need faith to be a Jew.
Zealous faith and prayer may not be you.
Values, symbols, memories need no proof.
A Jew is both by birthright and by choice.
Here's the song - now lend it, or not, your voice.
*For bar mitzvahs, read:
"… self./Remember to confide in it or else"
