Reb Shimon Bar Yochai, ode chai, ode chai

Reb Shimon Bar Yochai, ode chai, ode chai

Hashem take me higher with the light of your fire

Hashem take me higher with the light of your fire

Reb Shimon Bar Yochai, ode chai, ode chai

Reb Shimon Bar Yochai, ode chai, ode chai

 

Hashem take me higher with the light of your fire

Hashem take me higher with the light of your fire

 

Ana Hashem hoshia na, ana Hashem hatzlicha na

Ana Hashem hoshia na, ana Hashem hatzlicha na 

 

Seven wonders of history, our survival is a mystery

Babylon, Persia, Greece... Rome is gone 

We're still here singin' out our song

 

Wandered in exile for thousands of years

Stripped of our rights, our possessions and tears

Small in number but our soul is strong

We are the light, we will carry on

 

Sackcloth and ashes, blessing and curse

Return from the four corners of the earth

Rebuild the Temple, the Sabbatical year 

Scroll of Esther, there's nothin’ to fear

 

Open the book and testify

The Israelites have nothin’ to hide

Crazy codes and inspiration

We are the Eternal Nation

 

Reb Shimon Bar Yochai. Reb Shimon Bar Yochai

Reb Shimon Bar Yochai. Reb Shimon Bar Yochai

Reb Shimon Bar Yochai. Reb Shimon Bar Yochai

Reb Shimon Bar Yochai. Reb Shimon Bar Yochai 

Reb Shimon Bar Yochai

*All those who struggle to be righteous I call Israelite & friend. We will rejoice together for eternity, for the name Israel means one who struggles with God. 

"The righteous of all nations have a share in the World to Come” - Talmud Sanhedrin 13b
