HEHARIM RAKDU- Sung & Composed By R’ Shlomo Carlebach Z”L- Uvney Yerusholayim
Have you seen, have you seen
Have you seen the hills
of Yerusholayim dancing?
Have you heard, have you heard them cry
while they dance?
A long time ago, a long time ago,
we all lived on the hills
But then, we went into exile,
we went into the valley.
One valley was called The Inquisition,
One valley was called Auschwitz
And the last valley is called Siberia.
So how can the hill dance
as long as the valley
is still in exile?
On the great day, on the great day,
when from all the four corners of the world,
from all the valleys,
we will come back to Yerusholayim.
The people from the valley
will tell the people of the hill,
“When you were crying,
your tears rolled into the valley,
and your tears are so high!”
And the people of the hill
will tell to the people of the valley,
“Your prayers got caught in the hill,
and your prayers are so deep,
your prayers are so deep!”
And the valley and the hill will get together,
The 6 million and the 3 million
will dance together,
Israel and the world will sing together,
G-d and the angels,
We and G-d, G-d and us,
Yerusholayim and the whole world
will dance together on that holy hill.
