Marvelous Middos Machine #3
composed by Abie Rotenberg

I am an ancient wall of stone
Atop a hill so high
And if you listen with your heart
You just may hear my cry

Where has the Beis Hamikdash gone?
I stand here all alone
How long am I to wait for all
My children to come home

A house of marble and of gold
Once stood here by my side
From far and wide, all came to see
It's beauty and it's pride

But Sinas Chinam brought it down
And with it so much pain
Now only Ahavas Yisroel
Can bring it back again

Together, together
We stood by Har Sinai, my daughters and sons
Together, forever
We must stand together forever as one

You come and stand beside my stones
To raise your voice in prayer
You ask when will the Galus end
How much more can we bear?

But Sinas Chinam still lives on
It lingers in your heart
How can you come back home with me
While you remain apart?

I love this song. Even though it's really sad, it teaches us that G-D will always give us another chance to rebuild the beit hamikdash, but we have to give up our evil ways.
