Lyrics

Holy Soldier

Israeli soldier by the Western Wall a prayer book and a loaded gun
His head is covered he’s standing tall holy soldier in the sun
They took religion from his land and made a national holiday
Put the future in human hands, now he’s coming back to faith

Israeli soldier as a youth never taught the holy truth
Never heard the faithful speak that strength is rooted in belief
They stole religion from his heart but now he’s praying for his home
Takes the world to fall apart to put faith back into your bones…holy soldier, holy soldier

After the war no-one wanted to hear any-more
The lessons we gave our lives for were forgotten
We know this land is ours a promise was made to our fathers
And this house will be re-built one day…

Israeli soldier by the Western Wall Israeli soldier standing tall
A prayer book and a loaded gun holy soldier in the sun
They took religion from the land and put the future in his hands
Now he’s coming back to faith he kisses the wall and backs away
