LULEI SORASCHA- Journeys- Composed By Abie Rotenberg- Journeys 3

VERSE 1:
He sits late at night,
in the soft candlelight
As it cast its warm glow on the pages
And the words that he sees,
are the secret, the key
That has kept us alive through the ages.

Why does he cherish the wisdom of old
And delight in its study each day
He knows only Torah can nourish his soul
Come listen and hear what he says.

CHORUS 1:
Vos Zogt Beis Hillel,
Vos Meint Beis Shammai
Rava, Farvos
Haltz Du Nit Vi Abaye
Torah, without you,
I surely would die
Lulei Sorascha Sha’ashuay.
Vos Klert Ravina,
Vos Tracht Rav Ashi
P’shat Ken Min Treffen
In Heilige Rashi
Torah, you’ve given my spirit to me
Ki Vom, Ki Vom, Chiyisoni.

VERSE 2:
As a nation in flight,
we endured the world’s spite
And the sight of our precious books burning
We ignored our grief,
to the world’s disbelief
And never, no never stopped learning.

Why does he cherish the wisdom of old
And delight in its study each day
He knows only Torah can nourish his soul
Come listen and hear what he says.

CHORUS 2:
Maskif Rav Chisda,
Aisivay Rav Poppo
Zay Vu Der Rambam
Firt Ois P’sak Halacha
Torah, without you,
I surely would die
Lulei Sorascha Sha’ashuay.
A Rishion’s A Kasha,
An Acharoin’s A Svoreh
Chochmas Haboirei,
Vos Ligt In Gemara
Torah, you’ve given my spirit to me
Ki Vom, Ki Vom, Chiyisoni.

VERSE 3:
And now we remain,
with our faith yet sustained
By our passion and love for this treasure
It’s our link with Sinai
and our father on high
So we’ll keep on learning forever, forever, forever, forever…

CHORUS 3:
Lulei Sorascha Sha’ashuay,
Lulei Sorascha Sha’ashuay
Oz Ovadeti V’onyi,
Oz Ovadeti V’onyi.
L’olam Lo Eshkach Pikudecho,
L’olam Lo Eshkach Pikudecho
Ki Vom, Ki Vom Chiyisoni,
Ki Vom, Ki Vom Chiyisoni.
