Here are the beautiful lyrics:

Tapestry of ages, history unfolds
One people the unlikeliest of stories ever told
Tiniest of nations, casting light into the dark.

Empires have risen, empires they fall
They wield their might against us but we move on through it all
A lighthouse in the storm, a candle in the night.

Chorus:

Through the ages and thru the years (we’re still here)
Through the pain and thru the tears (we’re still here)
We’ll persevere well carry on (we’re still here)
Am Yisrael Adayin Kan (we’re still here).

So tonight we scream into the shadows,
So tonight we keep this flame alive.
In this fight we have us and we have hope,
Hear us now, we say, Am Yisrael Chai.

Every heart an ember, every soul a flame
Trying to extinguish it has always been the same
On and on it goes but the fire only grows.

Chorus

We will make it through this night
We say am yisrael, am yisrael chai.

Through the ages and thru the years
Through the pain and thru the tears
We’ll persevere well carry on Am Yisrael Chai v’Kayam.

So tonight we scream into the shadows,
So tonight we keep this flame alive.
In this fight we have us and we have hope,
Hear us now, we say, Am Yisrael Chai.
