I HAVEN'T LOVED ENOUGH

1.
My hands have yet to build a village;
Have yet to find water in the barren wilderness;
Have yet to paint a flower.
And I have yet to find the path that leads to my destiny.

Refrain:
My love is incomplete.
But the wind and the sun are still on my face.
My words are incomplete
Oh when shall they come together?

2.
When will I grow green fields? When will my city stand tall?
When will my grapevine grow from the dust?
There is so much to build and so much to be
And my love is just beginning.

Refrain:
My love is incomplete.
But the wind and the sun are still on my face.
My words are incomplete
Oh when shall they come together?

3.
When will I raise up my children,
And sing them my first song?
When the snowflake falls in summer
I will write down my memories in the house of my dreams.

Refrain:

My love is incomplete.
But the wind and the sun are still on my face.
My words are incomplete
Oh when shall they come together?

4.
Your beauty tempts me
But the time is not ripe.
There is so much to be done - grant me leave
For the race that is yet to be won.
Refrain:
My love is incomplete.
But the wind and the sun are still on my face.
My words are incomplete
Oh when shall they come together?

----------------------------------

THE RIGHTEOUS MAN AS A PALM

The righteous man shall flourish like the palm (tree)

He shall thrive (grow tall) like a cedar in Lebanon.

Rooted in the house of the Lord
In the courtyards of our G-d

They shall bring forth fruit in our old age
they'll be ever fresh and green,

Proclaiming that the Lord is just,
my Rock, in whom there is no wrong.

-----------------------------------

A BALLAD TO A SPRING

We will sing to you an old song
An old song about a spring
About a naughty spring
With very clear water
With very blue waves
Above golden sand

It sparkled in the springtime
It kissed new beginnings
Crossing grain fields
Filling the thirst of a tired wanderer
And gave it's livelihood
To a bent tree

But from the bottom of its soul it cried
And poured it's longing to the sun and the moon
Striving to the unknown and longed to the dream
But did not know what exactly it wants

One day - trembling
It asked from the God of the rivers
Make me big
I want to be a waterfall
I want to run
Like the wonder of dancing

I would like to wander far
To move mills strongly
To carry golden bridges
I want to be deep
To research every thing
With ships on my back

God has heard it
And he granted the spring's wishes
Took him along to sea
The sea with its white foam
Swallowed the spring's song
And its destiny was signed
The sea is big a small fountain
It's sweetness filled with salt
Its song was lost
It will not satisfy the thirst of the wanderer
And only one small fisherman
Heard the spring's cry
The spring that wanted to come out

------------------------------

THE LAND OF ISRAEL 

A land, a land, a land,
a land of a light blue sky without a cloud ,
and the sun is to it (to the land)
like milk and honey.
A land we were born in
a land we will live in,
and we will continue living here
no matter what happens.

A land that we'll love,
like Mother and Father,
a land of the people,
a land forever.
A land we were born in
a land we will live in,
no matter what happens.

A land, a land, a land,
the sea up against the shore,
and flowers and children
without end.
In the North - the Sea of Galilee,
In the South - sands,
And the East to the West
kisses the borders.

A land that we'll love...

A land, a land, a land,
land of the Torah,
you're the source of light
and the language of faith.
A land, a land, a land,
a dear land,
you promised
that it is not a fairytale.

A land that we'll love...

======================

ALL MY VOWS

All my vows all my words, 
I have carried them in every road I took
 
I carried them in a bundle, 
and the bundle is for you - my love.

Everything I've said, everything I will say,
love is a broken vow.

All my vows all my prayers,
I was hurt in my oath
 
I've created written words in me, 
a faithful vow - my love.

Everything I've said...........

All my vows all my suffering 
I've carried them through my youth
 
It was you who have broken my oath 
and I am left alone with all my vows.

Everything I've said...........

=============================

BEAUTIFUL ISRAEL

Nice girls with beautiful eyes
We have in Eretz Israel
And good boys
Oh, who would have believed it 

And we have such a Torah that lights
And Hagadah and the Megilla
And the one God we've got
And the voices of the bride and the groom 

Chorus:
Israel is beautiful
Israel is blooming
You sit and watch
You look at her, and (you) shine.

Brothers, we have 2000 year old mountains 
Where the bearer of good news walked 
And an angel from heaven 
Who is watching our souls 

And we have Hasids in this city
And women soldiers and flowers
And all the blessings are ours
And the gospels and the praises 

Chorus:
Israel is beautiful
Israel is blooming
You sit and watch
You look at her, and (you) shine.

And the valley is extraordinary
And the mountain is extraordinary 
And the north snow and ice 
And the south pure gold 

All the orchards here are spreading their scent 
And all the almond trees are blooming 
The sun always shines here 
On waters of sadness and serenity 

Chorus:
Israel is beautiful
Israel is blooming
You sit and watch
You look at her, and (you) shine.

As for the whippersnappers among us
They also have a place in Eretz Israel
From all the distresses, God forbid,
You- but only you, can save 

In blue and white the flag is flying
And towards Jerusalem all my songs
We again are making a pilgrimage
Ho, sing : the people of Israel is alive! 


Chorus:
Israel is beautiful
Israel is blooming
You sit and watch
You look at her, and (you) shine.

====================

JACOB'S LADDER

One morning, 
on the lawn of my rain-washed house,
On the lawn of my rain-washed house,
Down from Heaven
In wings of white came
An angel from Jacob's ladder.

-Where did you come from 
and where do you go?
-From the land of the Negev, 
to the land of Gilad 
-And who will you see there, 
o angel so good?
-The tent of Esau 
and the house of Jacob.

========================

SOUL MATE

My soul mate, Merciful father 
Pull me your servant towards you
 

Your servant will run like a doe
 
And bow in front your grace

=====================

HORA

The field we left behind then, still turns golden 
The earth still bears its crop 
And still beautiful are the nights in Canaan 
Before the sun rises 

The train still crosses the green orchard there 
A stork still rests above 
And the fog still floats in the valley 
Between the sunrise and the dew 

And also the hora, the one with the “Hey!” 
Its voice still rises, its voice is not stilled 
And this hora, the one with the “Hey!” 
Its song fills my heart forever 

Clouds still float over the city's houses 
And the sea caresses the shore 
And it's still heard, how within everyone's heart 
An old song and a dance are beating 

====================

ANCIENT MELODY

Again we shall turn to the ancient melody
and the song shall give us pleasure
we'll kiss the old, guarded glass
with joyful eyes and heart.

Our tents are good
and the dance beckons
our tents are good
again we shall turn to the ancient melody.

==============

HOW PLEASANT
How pleasant on the mountains 
are the feet of the messenger of good tidings. 

Proclaiming salvation, 
proclaiming peace.

===============

YOU SHALL BE BLESSED

The Lord bless thee out of Zion. And see thou the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life; and see thy children's children. Peace be upon Israel.
