God and His Judgment Are Just...

got un zayn mishpet iz gerekht …

Louis Gilrod - David Meyerowitz

Throughout his life the Jew has
a word of consolation for his misfortunes,
and this was passed down to him through the generations.
And whatever misfortune befalls him,
whatever happens to him,
he bears it all and is content,
as though it were nothing at all.
But his face becomes pale,
his eyes become wet,
his heart gets drained of blood.
To uplift his heart
and to ease his suffering,
he consoles himself with this:

God and His judgment are just!
One may never say that God is wrong;
God knows what He is doing:
He punishes no one without just cause.
God and His Judgment are just…

The Jew never finds happiness;
He has always suffered.
Broken into little pieces
is the Jewish nation.
He has no home, no land, no friend;
no warm, consoling words.
The beautiful sun doesn’t shine on him,
He is hated everywhere.
An accursed stranger,
he is a foreigner;
everywhere he is tormented.
He has countless sorrows.
Yet he bears his sufferings in silence;
he cries his eyes out and he says:

God and His Judgment are just….

In nearly every generation
a Haman arises
and attempts with all kinds of terror
to destroy the weak, defenseless Jew.
Now too, in the twentieth century,
recall how he is without friends.
They rob the Jew and plunder him,
in the Czar’s empire.
An evil Ivan,
a dog, Krushevan,
has spilled the blood of the Jew.
A sea of blood
was caused by the pogrom.
Yet the Jew keeps on singing his song:
God and His judgment are just.…
der yid hot in zayn lebn
