A YID

No matter if times are good or times are great, A YID knows that everything that happens is coming from his Father in heaven. His Father Who loves him more than anything in the entire universe and even far beyond. Over the last year we all witnessed our fellow Jews and our families and ourselves dig deep and discover strengths we never believed we had inside of us. And here we are, at the moment just before the sun rises to greet the brightest day the world has ever seen, and we are wiser, and we are stronger, and we are holier and more sensitive to the things and the people that matter. A YID NEVER BREAKS. AND A YID NEVER BENDS. AND A YID NEVER GIVES UP IN THE NIGHT. A YID UNDERSTANDS THAT HASHEM HAS A PLAN, AND THAT’S ALL IT TAKES TO MAKE IT THROUGH. HIS TATTEH LOVES HIM, THAT’S WHAT A YID HOLDS ON TO!

Lyrics

My friends, in times like these
It’s hard to see past the insanity
In a reality so uncertain and unknown

Life as we knew it – forever changed
And there’s no peace of mind to be found
Who can even make sense of tommorrow
When our dreams keep crashing to the ground

And yet as we we rise to greet another day
And the sun is still bright in the sky
Always a reason to hope for better times
Though it seems like the answer’s worlds away
We’ve got enough – just enough to keep us going
Holding on to unbroken simple faith

Cause a Yid never breaks
And a Yid never bends
And a Yid never gives up in the night
A Yid perseveres
Through the deepest despairs
His emunah strengthens him for the fight
And a Yid understands
That Hashem has a plan
And that’s all it takes to make it through
His Tatte loves him
That’s what a Yid holds on to

The world went dark
The crowds dispersed
On the streets that were once filled with life
But a brilliant light emerged from deep inside our hearts

The Shuls were shuttered and still
But our prayers rang through our homes
Instead of looking out for inspiration
We dug deep and found strengths we’d never known

And one more time
We will rise to greet another day
Where every moment’s more precious then ever
And life’s sweetest little joys they are the treasure

Cuz when it feels like the answer’s worlds away
We’ve got enough – more than enough to keep us going
We’re holding on to unbroken simple faith

Cause a Yid never breaks
And a Yid never bends
And a Yid never gives up in the night
A Yid perseveres
Through the deepest despairs
His emunah strengthens him for the fight
And a Yid understands
That Hashem has a plan
And that’s all it takes to make it through
His Tatte loves him
That’s what a Yid holds on to
