Elí, Elí
Music by David Zahavi
Lyrics by Hannah Szenes

Elí, Elí shelo yigamer l’olam

Hachol v’hayam
Rishrush shel hamayim
B’rak hashamayim
T’filat haadam.

[Translation]
O Lord, my God, I pray that these things never end:
The sand and the sea

The rush of the water

The crash of the heavens
The prayer of the heart.
