Lekhi Lakh

Four people in profile walking with the sunset behind them

Lekhi lakh to a land that I will show you
Lekh li-kha to a place you do not know
Lekhi lakh on your journey I will bless you
And you shall be a blessing, you shall be a blessing
You shall be a blessing lekhi lakh

Lekhi lakh and I shall make your name great
Lekh li-kha and all shall praise your name
Lekhi lakh to the place that I will show you
Li-simkhat hayyim, li-simkhat hayyim
Li-simkhat hayyim lechi lach.

And you shall be a blessing, you shall be a blessing
You shall be a blessing lekhi lakh.

“Lekhi lakh to a place that I will show you/Lekh lekha to a land you do not know…” Based on God’s words to Abraham to seek his destiny (Genesis 12:1–2).
