OD YISHOMA 1- R’ Shlomo Carlebach Z”L- Yisrael Betach Bashem/B’heichel Hatarbut/Greatest Hits Unplugged 2 (Also Recorded By MBD- Hineni Album)- Popularly sung at weddings by Keitzad Merakdin

You know, friends, in former good times
we had great leaders, we had Tzaddikim, we had great prophets,
before Moshiach is coming, all of us are little prophets.
You know what happened to the 6 million brought prophecy into the world,
because when they walked through the gas chambers,
they saw what nobody saw before.
I want you to know, friends,
I was priviliged to see soldiers late at night
with a gun in their hand, looking up at the sky.
I can swear to you they saw what nobody saw before
and they felt what nobody will ever feel again.
I’ve been priviliged to hold hands of wounded soldiers,
they’re waiting for Moshiach to bring them their eyes,
their feet, their souls, their hearts,
and they feel what nobody felt before.

But you know, my friends, what keeps us going?
One little prophecy, one little prophecy.
