    General CommentAn incredibly elegant piece. God, I love Regina's voice.

    Translated to English, the lyrics read:
    -My God, My God, I pray that these things never end:
    -The sand and the sea,
    -The rush of the waters,
    -Lightening of the Heavens,
    -The prayer of Man

    If you want to hear this song, there is a good recording here:

    General CommentMy bad, gingerale. That was supposed to be a comment.

    This piece was written by a woman named Hannah Szenes.
    She was a Hungarian Jew who was taught by the British army how to parachute into Yugoslavia during WWII so that the Jews in Hungary could be saved from being deported to Auschwitz.

    It's so beautiful.
