FATHER SIMON 
SIMON'S FATHER 

Father Shimon, be at my help
If I called for you, help me out

If I called for you in the middle of the night
help me in the early morning

Chorus:
Father Shimon be at my help
If I called for you help me out
O Father Shimon

Father Shimon if I called for you
In the darkness of the nights
I shall ask you in God's name saying
Please come to me in health

Chorus...

Father Shimon how many times I called for you
how much shall I wait for your reply / return
but if I called for you in the dark night
you’re my father and I am your son

Chorus

Father Shimon oh my dear father
Wherever I may go be at my help
help me and find compassion for my situation
as you make my heart rejoice

Chorus...
