english translation of....

>From land all green with palms, to lands all white with snow
We now arrive with all our pain and all our woe.
Where our blood sprayed out and came to touch the land,
There our courage and our faith will rise and stand.'
If anyone has the sheet music, as well as the Yiddish words, it would be most
helpful. You can email it to me privately at emirabel (at) aol(dot)com - thank
I don't recall hearing this before, but according to this Rabbi, this was the
song that was sung on the journey into the gas chamber. FYI, it's in the Gates
of Repentance, page 441.
