על כל אלה (Al Kol Ellae) (English translation)

English translationEnglish

Over all these things

Versions: #1#2
Over the honey and the stinger
Over the bitter and the sweet
And over our baby girl
Please guard my good lord
Over the burning fire
Over the crystal clear water
And over the man who is coming home
From afar
Over all these things, over all these things
Please stand guard for me my good g-d
Over the honey and the stinger
Over the bitter and the sweet
Don't uproot a sapling
Don't forget the hope
May you return me, and may I return
To the good land
Save the houses that we live in
The small fences and the wall
From the sudden war-like thunder
May you save them all.
Guard what little I've been given
Guard the hill my child might climb
Let the fruit that's yet to ripen
Not be plucked before its time.
As the wind makes rustling night sounds
And a star falls in its arc
All my dreams and my desires
Form crystal shapes out of the dark.
Guard for me, oh Lord, these treasures
All my friends keep safe and strong,
Guard the stillness, guard the weeping,
And above all, guard this song.
thanked 3 times

His brother's name was Jubal; he was the father of all
who play stringed instruments and pipes. (Genesis 4:21)
