Original text and translations

English.png English text

1. You ran from oppression,
Crossed the baking sand;
Found your own safety
In an alien land.

And Rachel's still weeping, weeping,
Weeping for her children.

2. And you found a haven
In that far off place;
Shielded and welcomed
By a foreign race,

And Rachel's still weeping, weeping,
Weeping for her children.

3. Fled here as a stranger;
Ran in hope and fear.
What kind of welcome
Shall this child find here?

And Rachel's still weeping, weeping,
Weeping for her children.

4. Now torn from my mother,
Caged in a free land,
Immigrant Jesus,
Come and take my hand.

And Rachel's still weeping, weeping,
Weeping for her children.
