L'dor Vador

Words and Music © 2007 Josh Nelson Music (BMI)

 

We are gifts and we are blessings, we are history in song

We are hope and we are healing, we are learning to be strong

We are words and we are stories, we are pictures of the past

We are carriers of wisdom, not the first and not the last

 

Chorus:

L'dor vador nagid godlecha

L'dor vador, we protect this chain

From generation to generation

L'dor vador, these lips will praise Your name

 

Looking back on the journey that we carry in our heart

From the shadow of the mountain to the waters that would part

We are blessed and we are holy, we are children of Your way

And the words that bring us meaning, we will have the strength to say

 

Chorus:

L'dor vador nagid godlecha

L'dor vador, we protect this chain

From generation to generation

L'dor vador, these lips will praise Your name

Adon olam asher malach, b'terem kol y'tzir nivra. L'et na'asah b'cheftzo kol azai melech sh'mo nikra. 

V'acharei kichlot hakol l'vado yimloch nora. 
V'hu hayah, v'hu hoveh, v'hu yihyeh b'tifarah. 

V'hu echad v'ein sheni l'hamishil lo l'hachbirah, b'li reishit b'li tachlit, 
v'lo haoz v'hamisra. 

V'hu eili v'chai goali 
v'tsur chevli b'eit tsrah, v'hu nisi umanos li, 
m'nat kosi b'yom ekrah. 

B'yado afkid ruchi 
b'et ishan v'airah. 
v'im ruchi g'viati 
Adonai li v'lo irah.

 

אֲדוֹן עוֹלָם אֲשֶׁר מָלַךְ, 
בְּטֶרֶם כָּל יְצִיר נִבְרָא. 
לְעֵת נַעֲשָׂה בְחֶפְצוֹ כֹּל, 
אֲזַי מֶלֶךְ שְׁמוֹ נִקְרָא. 

וְאַחֲרֵי כִּכְלוֹת הַכֹּל, 
לְבַדּוֹ יִמְלוֹךְ נוֹרָא. 
וְהוּא הָיָה, וְהוּא הֹוֶה, 
וְהוּא יִהְיֶה, בְּתִפְאָרָה. 

וְהוּא אֶחָד וְאֵין שֵׁנִי, 
לְהַמְשִׁיל לוֹ לְהַחְבִּירָה. 
בְּלִי רֵאשִׁית בְּלִי תַכְלִית, 
וְלוֹ הָעֹז וְהַמִּשְׂרָה. 

וְהוּא אֵלִי וְחַי גֹּאֲלִי, 
וְצוּר חֶבְלִי בְּעֵת צָרָה. 
וְהוּא נִסִּי וּמָנוֹס לִי, 
מְנָת כּוֹסִי בְּיוֹם אֶקְרָא. 

בְּיָדוֹ אַפְקִיד רוּחִי, 
בְּעֵת אִישַׁן וְאָעִירָה. 
וְעִם רוּחִי גְּוִיָּתִי, 
יְיָ לִי וְלֹא אִירָא.

Yachad

Yachad - 
lev el lev niftach venir'eh, 
t'aor shebashamayim 
Yachad - 
lev el lev niftach betikva -

la'ahava.

 

Ech shehalev niftach 

chovek yad la'olam 
Uvikria gdola 
nashir la'ahava. 

Imru hakol efshar, 
ze lo meuchar, 
Hashachar kvar ala, 
ze zman le'ahava. 
  
Yachad - 
lev el lev niftach venir'e,
t'aor shebashamayim 
Yachad - 
lev el lev niftach betikva -

la'ahava.

 

Verak im na'amin, 
uvli shum da'awin, 
Baderech ha'ola, 
ze shir la'ahava.

 

Together, 
heart to heart we'll open, and we'll seethe light in the sky. 
Together, 
heart to heart we'll open,

with hope for love.

 

The heart opens up, 
embraces hand to the world, 
And with a big shout 
we'll sing to love. 

Say: every thing is possible, 
it is not too late, 
Dawn has risen already 
it is time for love.

 

Together, 
heart to heart we'll open, and we'll see the light in the sky. 
Together, 
heart to heart we'll open,

with hope for love.

 

If we only believe, 
no mucking around, 
On the road coming up,
it is a song for love.

Verse 1

This is my siddur whose pages overflow

With the words of my ancestors that I will come to know

This is my siddur and that of my people,

The prayers of my heart, the meditations of my soul

 

Chorus

I will cherish it and make it my own

For the righteous light is—sown

Or zarua la’tzadik, ulyishrei lev simcha     

ahhh—ahhh-ahhh

 

Verse 2

I stand before my family, community and God

Open up my heart and sing a brand new song

Looking toward the future, anchored in the past

I will live my values until I breathe my last

 

Chorus

I will cherish it and make it my own

For the righteous light is--- sown

Or zarua la’tzadik, ulyishrei lev simcha    

ahh-ahh-ahh       ahh-ahh-ahh

 

Ahh-ahh—amen.
