Track Name: Radiant Faces יִרְ֣אוּ אֶת־ה
LYRICS:

I sought HASHEM and G-d answered me, and from all my terrors G-d saved me. [People] turned to G-d and became radiant, and their faces will never become downcast. [Psalms 34:5-6]... Be in awe of HASHEM, holy people of G-d, because those who are in awe lack nothing. Even lions crave and are left hungry, but those who seek HASHEM will never lack any good thing. [Psalms 34:10-11]

דָּרַ֣שְׁתִּי אֶת־ה' וְעָנָ֑נִי וּמִכָּל־מְ֝גֽוּרוֹתַ֗י הִצִּילָֽנִי׃ הִבִּ֣יטוּ אֵלָ֣יו וְנָהָ֑רוּ וּ֝פְנֵיהֶ֗ם אַל־יֶחְפָּֽרוּ׃ [תהלים לד:ה-ו] … יְר֣אוּ אֶת־ה' קְדֹשָׁ֑יו כִּי־אֵ֥ין מַ֝חְס֗וֹר לִֽירֵאָֽיו׃ כְּ֭פִירִים רָשׁ֣וּ וְרָעֵ֑בוּ וְדֹֽרְשֵׁ֥י ה' לֹֽא־יַחְסְר֥וּ כָל־טֽוֹב׃ [תהלים לד:י-יא]ו

Darashti et HASHEM va-anani u-mikol m'gurotai hitzilani. Hibitu eylav v'naharu u-f'neyhem al yechparu. Yr'u et HASHEM k'doshav ki eyn machsor li'rey-av. K'firim rashu v'ra-eyvu v'dorshey HASHEM lo yach's'ru chol tov.
Track Name: Dance (featuring Matthue Roth) הָפַ֣כְתָּ מִסְפְּדִי֮
LYRICS:

You transformed my sorrow into dancing. You unraveled my sackcloth and filled me with happiness[.] so that I might sing tribute to You and never stop. HASHEM is my G-d, I will thank You forever. [Psalms 30:12-13]

הָפַ֣כְתָּ מִסְפְּדִי֮ לְמָח֪וֹל לִ֥י פִּתַּ֥חְתָּ שַׂקִּ֑י וַֽתְּאַזְּרֵ֥נִי שִׂמְחָֽה׃ לְמַ֤עַן יְזַמֶּרְךָ֣ כָ֭בוֹד וְלֹ֣א יִדֹּ֑ם ה' אֱ֝לֹקַ֗י לְעוֹלָ֥ם אוֹדֶֽךָּ׃ [תהלים ל:יב-יג]ו

Hafachta mispedi le-machol li pitachta saki va-t'azreyni simcha. Le-maan y'zamercha chavod ve-lo yidom AMONAI elokai le-olam odeka.


I try to talk to G-d every chance that I get
When I don't know what to pray, I just say where I'm at
Thanks for eating, breathing, teething, or just being my Creator
Thanks for taking me out, and bringing me back home later
People always run to You, when they feel depressed
And they tune You right out when they're doing their best
'Cause this world is a mess
I can't stay 'till the end
Then I place my request and it starts to make sense
Thanks for stuffing in my breath so that I can breathe out
When I'm out and about and I feel real devout
I remember Your rain makes every blade of grass spout
You gave me basically everything
From my body and my soul
To my questioning
You're the reason that we praise
Your'e the reason that we cry
Raise us up
Let us sleep
And when it's the right time
We die
That's all there is
That's all there is
That's all there is...
(You took my grief
Unmade the mess
Opened up my darkened clothes
And turned them to a sack of happiness)
You created this world and everything in it, too
So that means every time I dance, I'm dancing with You
Track Name: Gideon's Song
LYRICS:

The angel of HASHEM appeared to him, and said to him, "HASHEM is with you, O mighty hero" [Judges 6:12] ... and he called it, "HASHEM [is the source of our] Peace." [Judges 6:24]

וַיֵּרָ֥א אֵלָ֖יו מַלְאַ֣ךְ ה' וַיֹּ֣אמֶר אֵלָ֔יו ה' עִמְּךָ֖ גִּבּ֥וֹר הֶחָֽיִל׃ [שפטים ו:יב] ... וַיִּקְרָא־ל֥וֹ ה' שָׁל֑וֹם עַ֚ד הַיּ֣וֹם הַזֶּ֔ה: [שפטים ו:כד]ו

Va-yera eylav mal'ach HASHEM va-yomer eylav HASHEM eemcha gibor he-chayil. Va-yikra lo HASHEM shalom aad ha-yom ha-ze.

Purim is today, Purim is today

Let’s thank the G-d above, in G-d we’ll always trust

Track Name: G-dcast: Lech Lecha לֶךְ־לְךָ֛
And HASHEM said to Abram, “Get yourself going” [Genesis 12:1]

וַיֹּ֤אמֶר ה֙' אֶל־אַבְרָ֔ם לֶךְ־לְךָ֛ [בראשית יב:א]ו

Va-yomer HASHEM el Avram, lech le-cha


Avram says I’m beautiful
So much so
He hides me away
But now I'm growing old
And it’s time to go
Should I laugh, or should I pray?
But this land that will be ours
Where sons are just like stars

We’re blindly told to go
To somewhere we don’t know
To live without blame
There's a promise made
That will never fade
Revealed in our new names
[breakdown- Abraham, Sarah]
So it's time for us to leave
With souls who now believe

It's not beauty, not royalty that keeps me going
But a Voice that's worth hearing, a path You’re showing
It's not just a land that we're walking to
But the journey itself is where we prove ourselves to You

Now it's time for us to leave
and live what we believe
Track Name: Beautiful City
LYRICS:

Return to Your sanctuary and to the Holy of Holies, the place where souls and spirits will gather, and they will sing songs and praises to You, in Jerusalem, the beautiful city. [From the "O, Master of the Universe" Sabbath evening meal hymn]

לְמִקְדָּשֵׁךְ תּוּב וּלְקֹֽדֶשׁ קֻדְֿשִׁין, אֲתַר דִּי בֵהּ יֶחֱדוּן רוּחִין וְנַפְשִׁין, וִיזַמְּֿרוּן לָךְ שִׁירִין וְרַחֲשִׁין, בִּירוּשְֿׁלֵם קַרְתָּא דְשׁוּפְֿרַיָּא. [מהזמר "י-ה רבון" בסדר ליל שבת]ו

Le-mikdashech tuv ule-kodesh kud'shin, atar di vey yechedun ruchin ve-nafshin, viyzamrun lach shirin ve-rachashin, b'yerush'lem karta d'shufraya.
Track Name: From the Dust הִתְנַֽעֲרִ֧י
LYRICS:

Shake off the dust, rise up! Put on your clothes of magnificence, My people.
By the hand of the son of Jesse of Beit Lechem, come closer to My redeeming soul.
Wake up, wake up! Your light has come, so rise up and shine it.

Awaken, awaken and sing a song. The glory of HASHEM has been revealed on you.
[From the "Come, my Beloved" prayer welcoming the Sabbath]


הִתְנַעֲרִי מֵעָפָר קוּמִי, לִבְשִׁי בִּגְדֵי תִּפְאַרְתֵּךְ עַמִּי
עַל יַד בֶּן יִשַׁי בֵּית הַלַּחְמִי, קָרְבָה אֶל נַפְשִׁי גְּאָלָהּ

הִתְעוֹרְרִי הִתְעוֹרְרִי, כִּי בָא אוֹרֵךְ קוּמִי אוֹרִי
עוּרִי עוּרִי שִׁיר דַּבֵּרִי, כְּבוֹד ה' עָלַיִךְ נִגְלָה
מתפילת "לכה דודי" בקבלת שבת]ו]


Hitnaari me'afar kumi, livshi bigdey tif'artech ami
Al yad Ben Yishai Beit Ha-lachmi, karva el nafshi ge'ala.

Hitoreri hitoreri, ki va orech kumi ori
Uri uri shir daberi, k'vod HASHEM alayich nigla.
Track Name: Blues of Glory
LYRICS:

I will tell of Your magnificence but I can't see You, I will tell stories about You and describe You, but I don't know You. [From the "Song of Glory" prayer in the additional Sabbath service]

אֲסַפְּֿרָה כְבוֹדְֿךָ וְלֹא רְאִיתִיךָ, אֲדַמְּֿךָ אֲכַנְּֿךָ וְלֹא יְדַעְתִּיךָ. [מהפיוט "שיר הכבוד" בתפילת מוסף לשבת]ו

Asapra ch'vodcha ve-lo ra'iticha, adamcha achancha ve-lo y'daticha.
Track Name: Who Can מִ֗י יְ֭מַלֵּל
LYRICS:

Who can retell the things that befell us,
Who can count them?
In every age, a hero or sage
Came to our aid.

Hark!
In days of yore in Israel's ancient land
Brave Maccabeus led the faithful band
But now all Israel must as one arise
Redeem itself through deed and sacrifice.

מי ימלל גבורות ישראל
אותן מי ימנה
הן בכל דור יקום הגיבור
גואל העם

שמע
בימים ההם בזמן הזה
מכבי מושיע ופודה
ובימינו כל עם ישראל
יתאחד, יקום ויגאל

Mi yimalel gevurot Yisrael,
Otan mi yimne?
Hen be'chol dor yakum ha'gibor
Goel ha'am.

Shma!
Ba'yamim ha'hem ba'zman ha'ze
Maccabi moshia u'fode
U'v'yameinu kol am Yisrael
Yitached yakum ve'yigael!
Track Name: Tum Balalaike טום־באַלאַלײַקע
LYRICS:

Tumbala, Tumbala, Tumbalalaika
Tumbala, Tumbala, Tumbalalaika
Tumbalalaika, strum balalaika
Tumbalalaika, may we be happy

A young lad stands, stands and thinks
Thinks and thinks a whole night
Whom to take and not to shame
Whom to take and not to shame

Girl, girl, I want to ask of you
What can grow, grow without rain?
What can burn and never end?
What can yearn; cry without tears?

Foolish lad, why do you have to ask?
A stone can grow, grow without rain
Love can burn and never end
A heart can yearn; cry without tears


טום-באַלאַ, טום-באַלאַ, טום-באַלאַלײַקע,
טום-באַלאַ, טום-באַלאַ, טום-באַלאַלײַקע,
טום-באַלאַלײַקע, שפיל באַלאַלײַקע,
טום-באַלאַלײַקע, פריילעך זאָל זײַן!

שטייט אַ בחור, שטייט און טראַכט,
טראַכט און טראַכט אַ גאַנצע נאַכט:
וועמען צו נעמען און נישט פארשעמען.
וועמען צו נעמען און נישט פארשעמען.

מיידל, מיידל, כ'וויל בײַ דיר פרעגן:
וואָס קען וואַקסן, וואַקסן אָן רעגן?
וואָס קען ברענען און נישט אויפהערן?
וואָס קען בענקען, וויינען אָן טרערן?

נאַרישער בחור, וואָס דאַרפסטו פרעגן?
אַ שטיין קען וואַקסן, וואַקסן אָן רעגן,
ליבע קען ברענען און נישט אויפהערן,
אַ האַרץ קען בענקען, וויינען אָן טרערן.

Track Name: Good to Me מָֽה־אָשִׁ֥יב
What can I give back to HASHEM? G-d is completely good to me. I'll raise my cup of salvations and call out in the name of HASHEM [Psalms 116:12-13]... halleluy-h. [Psalms 116:19]

מָֽה־אָשִׁ֥יב לַה' כָּֽל־תַּגְמוּל֥וֹהִי עָלָֽי׃ כּוֹס־יְשׁוּע֥וֹת אֶשָּׂ֑א וּבְשֵׁ֖ם ה' אֶקְרָֽא׃ [תהלים קטז:יב-יג] ... הַֽלְלוּ־יָֽ-הּ: [תהלים קטז:יט]ו

You come to me with a sword, a spear, and a javelin - but I come to you in the name of HASHEM, Master of Legions [I Samuel 17:45] ... for it is not by sword and spear that HASHEM saves ... [I Samuel 17:47]

אַתָּה֙ בָּ֣א אֵלַ֔י בְּחֶ֖רֶב וּבַֽחֲנִ֣ית וּבְכִיד֑וֹן וְאָֽנֹכִ֣י בָֽא־אֵלֶ֗יךָ בְּשֵׁם֙ ה' צְבָא֔וֹת [שמואל א יז:מה] ... כִּֽי־לֹ֛א בְּחֶ֥רֶב וּבַֽחֲנִ֖ית יְהוֹשִׁ֣יעַ ה' ... [שמואל א יז:מז]ו
