DADDY DEAR (A.K.A. Father Dear)- Mordechai Ben David- Lyrics By Dina Storch- Yerusholayim Our Home/The English Collection
(Original Song Written By Wayne Shanklin- Little Boy & The Old Man)

Daddy dear, tell me please,
Is it true what they say?
In the heavens there’s a cup
That gets fuller each day,
And I heard that Hashem
Keeps it close nearby,
And He fills it with his tears
Each time that we cry.

Zaidy told me, daddy dear,
Did he tell you the same?
That when sorrow strikes His people,
Hashem feels all the pain.
Tell me why does He cry
Far away in the sky?
Tell me why, daddy dear,
Are there tears in your eyes.

Little one, little one
It is true, yes, it’s true,
Zaidy told me years ago,
And his dad told him too,
Fathers cry for their children,
And Hashem does the same,
When we hurt, so does He,
Yes, He feels our pain.

Tears of pity from his eyes,
In this cup, sadly flow,
Till one day when it’s full,
All our troubles will go,
We will dance we will fly,
In the sky like the birds,
And I cry little one,
Because I’m touched by your words.

One more question, daddy dear
Answer please, if you will,
Just how deep is this cup
Tell me when will it fill,
Don’t you think it is time
That the sun forever shine?
Don’t you think it is time
Dear daddy of mine?

Little one, it is time,
And I’ve questioned that too,
So let us ask him together
Together, me and you,
Father dear, do You hear
Our worries, our fears,
Will Your eyes ever dry
Is Your cup filled with tears?
