SHOW ME THE WAY- Michoel Pruzansky- Composed By Yitzy Waldner- MP3

Around the Shabbos table, his parents sit and wait,
Where’s Gavriel, why is he so late?
Our boy, here one day,
Like wind, he drifts away…
It’s come to this and now what will he say?

Came home before dawn, tired from the night,
His parents pained and grudgingly; they say,
“Our son, we love you so,
Live life with us at home,
But if you won’t then you must break away”.

CHORUS:
Show me the way, here I am stumbling in the black
Alone, Tatty someday you know I’ll come back
Lead me father, be the one to light my way
Show me the way, show me the way.

Moved in with his buddies, money all but spent
Had to take a job to pay the rent
As time moved along
His Yiddishkeit moved on
Soon he was a shadow, known as Jay.

The friends met in the morning, Let’s go party, have a blast
Live today as if it were our last
His dad then appeared
A Tzaddik’s buried near
Come pray with me, for now forget the past.

CHORUS:
Show me the way, here I am stumbling in the black
Alone, Tatty someday you know I’ll come back
Lead me father, be the one to light my way
Show me the way, show me the way.

From the kever made his way, to a darkened home he came,
His cell phone rings, just stunned he hears the news
“Your friends Mark and Ray, in an accident today,
They both are gone, so thankful you’re okay”.

Came a knock upon the door,
Mommy stands in shock and awe
In tears, Gavriel told her what went on
Mom and Dad I’ve hurt you so, I’m so sorry, his tears flow
Embracing him they cried out “Welcome home”.

CHORUS:
Show me the way, here I am stumbling in the black
Alone, Tatty someday you know I’ll come back
Lead me father, be the one to light my way
Show me the way, show me the way.

Then came the day, beside his bride Gavriel dressed in black
As one, Choson and his Kallah smiling back
Raised his eyes and whispered, “Father on this day,
You showed me the way.
You showed me the way.
