3,000 Israelis, Muslims, Jews, and Christians sing together

Matisyahu  a  musician, known for his spiritual lyrics and one famous hit is the song “One Day,” a song of hope for the future of the world. Matisyahu said, “It is an anthem of hope with a big beat, the kind of song that makes you bob your head and open your heart at the same time.”

Koolulam an Israeli “social-musical initiative, aimed at bringing together people from all corners of the diverse, multicultural Israeli society, chose this unique performance.  On February 14, 2018, Koolulam brought together a group of 3,000 strangers to sing a beautiful rendition of Matisyahu’s “One Day,” a message of peace and coexistence, in three languages.

In this video, you see people from all walks of life – Jewish, Muslim, Christian, some religious, some secular. It is evident that the participants are moved by this experience.  It is truly  inspirational and emotional.  I hope you enjoy.

One Day Lyrics

 

See everybody that´s existing
Got a mind of their own
We´re all Kings and Queens
With a throne of our own
Tryin to raise a family
Is an empty home
We got to learn to stick together
Hate to be here alone
‘Cause the world is a place
That will eat you alive in one day
Said the world is a place
That you can´t survive without faith
Sometimes in my tears I drown
But I never let it get me down
So when negativity surrounds
I know some day it´ll all turn around
Because
All my life I´ve been waiting for
I´ve been praying for
For the people to say
That we don´t wanna fight no more
They´ll be no more wars
And our children will play
One day (one day), One day (one day)
One day (one day), One day (one day)
One day (one day), One day (one day)
It´s not about
Win or lose
We all lose
When they feed on the souls of the innocent
Blood drenched pavement
Keep on moving though the waters stay raging
In this maze you can lose your way (your way)
It might drive you crazy
But don’t let it faze you no way (no way)
Gotta hold on
Livin life day by day
Gotta hold on
Put your focus on that one day
All my life I´ve been waiting for
I´ve been praying for
For the people to say
That we don´t wanna fight no more
They´ll be no more wars
And our children will play
One day (one day), One day (one day)
One day (one day), One day (one day)
One day (one day), One day (one day)
One day this all will change
Treat people the same
Stop with the violence
Down with the hate
One day we´ll all be free
And proud to be
Under the same sun
Singing songs of freedom like
Gotta hold on
Livin life day by day
Gotta hold on
Put your focus on that one day
All my life I´ve been waiting for
I´ve been praying for
For the people to say
That we don´t wanna fight no more
They´ll be no more wars
And our children will play
One day (one day), One day (one day)
One day (one day), One day (one day)
One day (one day), One day (one day)
