Eli Eli

Eli, Eli, lomo asavtoni!
Eli, Eli, lomo asavtoni!
 
In feuer und flamm hat man uns gebrennt,
Und auch überall gemacht uns zu schand und zu spott,
Doch abzuwenden hat unskener nicht gekennt
Von dir, mein Gott, von dein heilige Torah, dein Gebot!
 
Eli, Eli, lomo asavtoni!
Eli, Eli, lomo asavtoni!
 
Tog und nacht nur ich tracht von dir mein Gott,
Ich hüt mit moire unser Torah!
 
Rette mir, Rette mir von gefahr,
Wie amol die oves ton beisen gezar,
Hör mein gebet, hör mein gewein,
Helfen kannst du, nur allein,
Sh'mei Jisroel, Ad'noi ellohenu, Adonoi, Echod!

It is arranged for ease of reading. There are other versions of this song. Perry Como is famous for singing his version too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AkeSoJuPJ1s

My God, My God

My God, My God, why have you forsaken us!
Father, Father, why have you forsaken us!
 
In fire and flame have men been tortured,
And everywhere we went we were shamed and ridiculed,
No one could make us turn away from our faith
From you, my God, from your holy Torah, your Law!
 
My God, My God, why have you forsaken us!
Father, Father, why have you forsaken us!
 
Day and night I think of to you my God,
I keep within me your sacred Torah!
 
Save me, save me from danger,
As you have done many times before,
Hear my prayer, listen to my plea,
You alone can help us,
Hear Oh Israel, The Lord is Our God, the Lord is One!
 
Thanks!
