And now I’m standing at this wall trying to perceive, what is it in Jerusalem that makes a hew believe…

I’ve got two lines in my head and can’t remember the rest of the song. Can anyone help me out with which song it is? I think it’s a Dina Storch song, probably from a cantata one year.

Here are the full lyrics (music and lyrics by dina storch):

I used to think the world was one big fairytale
And toys we were in our Makers hands
I used to hear my father talk of battlefields
And how he followed each command

And now I'm standing at this wall trying to perceive
What is it in Jerusalem that makes a boy believe?
I've tried to understand the fight for freedom versus
I want to know, I want to grow
I want to seethe true reality

I've heard them speak of Rabbis with laughter and in jest
But who if not these Rabbis know freedom at its best?
I used to think the uniform would complement my face
And now I lift this prayer book, its time to change the pace

My father is a warrior, it makes him proud
And I am too, I understand
Endangering his very life to save the crowds
He wants to help, to save this land

And now I'm standing at this wall inspired by this truth
What is in Jerusalem attracting all these youth?
I feel that I must join the battle fighting for my soul
I want to know, I want to grow
I want to see the true reality

I've heard my father saying, we're fighting to be Jews
I wish he would have taught me, and put his words to use
I used to think the battlefront was were I ought to be
And now I lift this prayer book, its pages strengthen me!
