YAMIM SHEL T'SHUVAH

Hayamim hem yamim shel t'shuvah
cheshbon hanefesh mul s'firat ham'lai.
Ha'im hiv'arnu belibeinu et esh ha'ahavah
o ulai haytah hi al t'nai?

Hayamim hem yamim shel t'shuvah,
mah karah ach'rei chatzi me'ah.
Ha'im hif'shatnu me'aleinu et g'limat haga'avah,
o ba'atnu keshehabeten hitmal'ah.

Ananah k'vedah,
simanim shel she'elah,
mah tavi hashemesh ha'olah?
Uveseter lev,
mistanenet mish'alah,
nu, matai tavo,
nu, matai tavo,
nu, matai tavo hage'ulah.

Hayamim hem yamim shel t'shuvah,
darchei avot o eretz chadashah.
Ha'im shamarnu betocheinu
et haru'ach shenashvah ,
o vitarnu al hayerushah.

Ananah k'vedah...

DAYS OF REPENTANCE

These are the days of repentance,
Soul-searching versus stocktaking.
In our hearts a fire of love did we kindle,
- or was it, maybe, conditional?

These are the days of repentance,
What has happened, half a century on?
Did we shed our cloak of arrogance,
or kick out on a full belly?

Heavy clouds,
With question marks:
What will the sunrise bring?
And in the heart's most secret space ,
A wish is hiding,
O, when will it come,
O, when will it come,
O, when will the redemption come?

These are the days of penitence:
Ancestral ways or a new land?
Did we safeguard the spirit
Of inspiration within us,
Or did we forfeit our inheritance?

Heavy clouds...
