Gloria and I like to watch foreign films.  It’s intriguing to glimpse into other cultures.

A few years ago we watched (through Netflix, I believe) Fill the Void.  It is a Hebrew film about a young woman who is pressured into marrying her late sister’s husband.  There’s a bit more to it than that, but you get the idea.  I think you’ll be captivated by the movie, but it’s the music that I remember.

Specifically, the song I am sharing today is one that bounces around in my mind from time to time.  It is based on Psalm 137:

How can we sing the songs of the Lord
while in a foreign land?
If I forget you, Jerusalem,
may my right hand forget its skill.
May my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth
if I do not remember you,
if I do not consider Jerusalem
my highest joy.

You may not understand Hebrew; I’m limited. But you can listen to the song, read the passage and be inspired.
