BATI ELECHA

Shachaf do’e al chelkat hayam
Uvagva’ot tor yaldut nechlam
Tzemach cholot bifricha
Al yabashto hamlucha
Bati elecha im ma shesha’alti mimcha

Ta’atuai bin’ot midbar
Une’urai benivey habar
Kan be’avney hamakom
Haga’agu’a yishkon
Bati elecha lasim benafshenu shalom

Ho ho ho
Mayim chaim be’artzot chama
Ho ho ho
Be’afikecha nishbar tzama
Hed chalilim rechokim
Shav mikarmey hazetim
Bati elecha im kol giv’olai hadakim

Al ha’etzim hasaraf nitach
Uvisdot hazahav nishpach
Lemargelot habroshim
Deshe make shorashim
Bati elecha vechol anafai nirgashim

Ho ho ho
Mayim chaim be’artzot chama
Ho ho ho
Be’afikecha nishbar tzama
Ta’am perot ha’ona
Kmo ahava rishona
Bati elecha im bat shirati haktana

I CAME TO YOU

A seagull glides above the sea
Childhood is dreamt on the hills
A sand plant blooms
In a salty land
I came to you with what I have asked of you

Illusions in the Oasis
My youth are like wild grapes
Here on the stones
Yearning will reside
I came to you to put peace in our soul

Ho ho ho
Flowing water in hot countries
Ho ho ho
In your routs thirst will be broken
Distant flutes’ eco
Comes back from olives groves
I came to you with all my thin stalks

Seraph pouring over trees
Gold is spilt in fields
At the foot of the Cypress
Grass is growing roots
I came to you and all my branches are thrilled

Ho ho ho
Flowing water in hot countries
Ho ho ho
In your routs thirst will be broken
The taste of fruits of the season
Like first love
I came to you with my precious song
