The Banner
of the Jew

By EMMA LAZARUS

Wake. Israel, wake! Recall today
The glorious Maccabean rage,
The sire heroic, hoary-gray,
His five-fold lion-lineage:
The Wise, • the Elect, the Help-of-God,
The Burst-of-Spring, the Avenging Rod.

licmukah -- 5721

From Mizpeh's mountain-side they saw
Jerusalem's empty streets, her shrine
Laid waste where Greeks profaned the Law
With idol and with pagan sign.
Mourners in tattered black were there,
With ashes sprinkled on their hair.

Then from the stony peak there rang
A blast to ope the graves; down .
poured
The Maccabean clan, who sang
•Their battle-anthem to the ,Lord.
Five heroes lead, and following, see,
Ten thousand rush to victory!

Oh, for Jerusalem's trumpet now, •
To blow a blast of shattering power
To wake the sleepers high and low,
And rouse them to the urgent hour!
No Band for vengeance—but to save,
A million naked sivords should wave.

Oh, deem not dead that martial fire,
Say not the mystic flame is spent!
With Moses' law and David's lyre,
Your ancient strength remains 'unbent.
Let but an Ezra rise anew,
To lift the Banner of the Jew!

A rag, a mock' .at first—ere long,
When men have bled and women wept,
To guard its precious folds from wrong.
Even they who shrunk, even they who
Slept,
Shall leap to bless it and to save.
• Strike! Tor the brave revere the brave!
