Wall Around Jericho

Music: Trad. Arr. Jane Swords: Red Notes Choir

Israel built a wall around Jeri­cho,
Beth­le­hem, Jerusalem.
Israel built a wall around Jeri­cho,
But that wall will come tum­bling down.

Let me tell you ’bout that wall of ter­ror
It’s a hun­dred miles wide
It’s a prison wall around Pales­tine
For the vil­lages trapped inside.

They may talk about secu­ri­ty,
Well it brings no safe­ty there,
That wall of occu­pa­tion
Means star­va­tion and despair.

That wall stands for apartheid,
It steals on every hand,
The orchards and the olive groves,
The water and the fer­tile land.
