lyrics

LYRICS:

For just as my ancestors planted for me - I am planting for my descendants, too. [Babylonian Talmud, Tractate Taanit 23a] The song of elevations upon the return of HASHEM; when Zion was restored, we were like dreamers. [Psalms 126:1]

כִּי הֵיכִי דְשַׁתְלֵי לִי אֲבַהַתַי – שַׁתְלֵי נַמִי לִבְרׇאִי. [מסכת תענית א23] שִׁ֗יר הַֽמַּ֫עֲל֥וֹת בְּשׁ֣וּב ה' אֶת־שִׁיבַ֣ת צִיּ֑וֹן הָ֝יִ֗ינוּ כְּחֹֽלְמִֽים׃ [תהלים קכו:א]ו

Ki heichi d’shatlei li avahatai - shatlei nami liv’ra’i. Shir ha-maalot be-shuv ADOSHEM et shivat tzion hayinu ke-cholmim.


Here, in the earth that fashioned Eve
[Here they planted for me]
Here, where understanding grew
[I’m planting for you]

Up here an olive branch was seen
[Here they planted for me]
Under skies where colors flew
[I’m planting for you]

Ki heichi...

From here, a voice burned in the leaves
[Here they planted for me]
A call to lead our people through
[I’m planting for you]

Right here, Deborah came to teach
[Here they planted for me]
Beneath her tree we sought the truth
[I’m planting for you]

Ki heichi...

[Shir ha-maalot]
Someone dreamed the world for me
[Be-shuv ADOSHEM]
Now I am dreaming it for you
[Et shivat tzion]
Take the world, and dream anew
[Hayinu ke-cholmim, ke-cholmim]

Ki heichi...
