How can we believe in miracles
After two millennia of none?
No intervention spared the Jews of Sorrow;
Under no temple roofs were wonders done.
Knowing who provided all those ashes,
Knowing well the secret of that flame,
As we light the candles of remembrance,
How can we bear to call upon your name?
