SHORASHAI

SHORASHIM 

Heichan hem shorashai im tish'alini
im tze'irim hinam hayom o atikim
od yerukim hashorashim ana havini
ach atikim hemah me'od umutzakim

Gam lo chakarti bas'farim ve'lo darashti
al em haderech lo matz'ati kol siman
ve'rak davar echad katan pit'om hirgashti
shehem tzom'chim heitev vezehu zeh hazman.

Shorashim darkei avot
shorashim kol hash'vatim
kol shirei David achshav hem shorashim
shorashai mish'lei Shlomo
shorashai banevi'im
shorashai biy'rushalaim nes harim.

Heichan hem shorashai im tish'aluni
im tze'irim hinam hayom o atikim
od yerukim hashorashim ana havini/hata'amini
hoi/ach atikim hemah me'od gam/u-mutzakim

Vehem t'munim heitev be'admotaich
bahar ba'emek bamer'chav uvamidbar
vehem shotim betzim'onam et kol meimaich
vehem gam aruchim heitev el hamachar.

Shorashim...

MY ROOTS

ROOTS 

Where are my roots if you ask me
whether they are young or old today
my roots are still yellow, please understand
but they are very old and solid

I didn't even research in books or inquire
on the mother road I didn't find each sign
and I suddenly only felt one little thing
that they grow well and this is the time.

Roots - the ways of the forefathers
roots - all the tribes
all the songs of David are now roots
my roots - Solomon's proverbs
my roots - in the prophets
my roots in Jerusalem, miracle of mountains.

Where are my roots if you ask me
whether they are young or old today
my roots are still yellow, understand/believe
oh/but they are very old and solid (too)

And they are well concealed in your grounds
upon the hill, valley, open space and desert
and they drink in their thirst all your waters
and they are set well for tomorrow.
