WELCOME ELIYAHU- Jeff Braverman & Jonathan Rimberg- Shoresh 2

Welcome Eliyahu

When I was a little child,
I would very often hear,
People talking ‘bout this special man,
How they’re waiting for him to appear,
And I know… its been a long long time.

So seasons come and seasons change,
Remembering at Pesach time,
We set the table oh so nice,
We pour that extra cup of wine,

To welcome Eliyahu,
(The prophet Elijah)
Welcome him tonight,
(The prophet of hope and peace)
Welcome him to the Pesach seder,
And watch him drink the wine.

Welcome Eliyahu,
(Eliyahu ha’navi)
From darkness into light,
(Eliyahu ha’tishbi)
Come and greet him with our song,
And welcome him tonight.

A new arrival came today,
We’ve got a brand new baby boy,
Preparing for a brit milah,
A pillow, wine and cups of joy,

Kiseh Eliyahu
(A seat for Eliyahu)
Welcome with a smile,
Its a start to a special life,
A blessing for a child.

Welcome Eliyahu…
