IT’S WHAT I BELIEVE- Journeys- Composed By Abie Rotenberg- Journeys 3

Father please tell me, help me understand
Who made what surrounds us, the sky and the land
The water we drink, the air that we breathe
Father please tell me, what should I believe

Listen my child, put your trust in me
There is a creator that man cannot see
And we owe our existence to no one but him
Bereishes Bara Elokim.

It’s not just a story, a tale that’s been told
A fable, a myth, or a legend of old
It’s not someone’s fantasy, theory, or whim
It’s what I believe, Ani Maamin.

Father please tell me, I’m asking of you
Why am I different, what makes me a Jew
How am I to know, the right life to lead,
Father please tell me, what should I believe.

Listen my child, it was long long ago
When we stood by the mountain, one nation one soul
What we received is our very life’s blood,
Naaseh Venishma Amru Ke’echad.

It’s not just a story, a tale that’s been told
A fable, a myth, or a legend of old
It’s not someone’s fantasy, theory, or whim
It’s what I believe, Ani Maamin.

Father please tell me we, what does G-d intend
Will this long bitter exile soon come to an end
Or must we continue to suffer and grieve,
Father please tell me, what should I believe.

Listen my child, the future will bring
A day when the world knows who’s king of all kings
Today or tomorrow, I don’t need to know
Achakeh Lo Bechol Yom Sheyovoh.

It’s not just a story, a tale that’s been told
A fable, a myth, or a legend of old
It’s not someone’s fantasy, theory, or whim
It’s what I believe, Ani Maamin.

And it’s what I believe
And it’s what we believe
Ani Maamin.
