The Temple lay in ruins, it’s Holiness defiled
Victim to the madness of a world gone wild
Standing near the altar, not afraid to be seen
She lashes out and strikes it, her words are so obscene

“ hungry wolf, how Israel’s wealth you devour
Yet you don’t stand by them, in their most troubled hour”
She’s the daughter of Bilgah, and wife of a Greek
She’d abandoned her people, she despises the weak

Chorus:
Punished by the priests, shunned from Above
She traded her people for a forbidden love
Decrying the altar, did she have no shame?
Now forever tarnished was the Bilgah name

Many years have passed
And thousands have appeared
To sit before and hear the voice
of a leader so revered
But they were all surprised at the Rebbe’s words
He had someone else in mind
To stand up for this daughter of Bilga
To set things right

The people of your time thought you had strayed
But you pounded the Altar, to defend the betrayed
The voice of compassion, for a woman who dared
To show her own people, that she really cared

Punished by the Priests , shunned from Above
At last there was one, who had only words of love
For two thousand years she carried her shame
How she longed for someone to liberate her name

Roaming through time, had this tortured soul
Nowhere to rest, nowhere to hide, no words to console
Her time had now come, to enter Heavens gates
It took the words of one who cared, the night a soul was saved

Punished by the Priests , shunned from Above
At last there was one, who had only words of love
Her time had now come, to enter Heavens gates
From those words of comfort, the night a soul was saved
