The Human Person

Whoever saves one life

Saves the world entire

The Schindler story

Talmud text

A truth to flame like fire


My life is so important

Your life vital too

The widow woman sweeps her house

A drachma to pursue


The shepherd seeks the sheep now lost

No rest until he finds

The lost and lonely animal

Restored to flock and kind


All life is based upon this truth

Each person’s value high

While heartless ideologies

Are practising a lie


War and want now threaten us

We argue and we fight

Let your life promote this truth

Don’t let it out of sight
