May These Things Never End

This papercut explores the words of a song written by Hannah Senesh, a Jewish heroine of World War II. She was killed after being captured in Hungary, during an effort to save Allied prisoners of war and organize Jewish resistance.
Rough translation: “My God, My God, may these things never end: the sand and the sea, the rustle of the water, the lightning/thunder of the sky, the prayers of humankind.” (Designed while listening to Manu Chao, cut while listening to Tandia, by Bryce Courtenay).
