I Am Planting (Music Video)

Special thanks to Cyd Weissman and the Jewish Education Project.

Lyrics

Here, in the earth that fashioned Eve

Here they planted for me

Here, where understanding grew,

I’m planting for you

 

Up here an olive branch was seen

Here they planted for me

Under skies where colors flew,

I’m planting for you

Ki heikhi d’shatlei li avahatai – shatlei nami liv’ra’i כי היכי דשתלי לי אבהתי – שתלי נמי לבראי

 

From here, a voice burned in the leaves

Here they planted for me

A call to lead our people through,

I’m planting for you

 

Right here, Deborah came to teach

Here they planted for me

Beneath her tree we sought the truth,

I’m planting for you

Ki heikhi d’shatlei li avahatai – shatlei nami liv’ra’i כי היכי דשתלי לי אבהתי – שתלי נמי לבראי

 

Shir hama’a lot – שיר המעלות

Someone dreamed the world for me B’shuv Adoshem – ‘בשוב ה

Now I am dreaming it for you Et shivat tzion – את שיבת ציון

Take the world, and dream anew Hayinu k’kholmim, k’kholmim – היינו כחולמים

 

Ki heikhi d’shatlei li avahatai – shatlei nami liv’ra’i כי היכי דשתלי לי אבהתי – שתלי נמי לבראי
