Rosh Hashana

Ask my God

Ask my God, I will ask your God,

Maybe this time we will not miss.

 

You'll go to me, I'll go to you,

Replace your solution with my enigma.

 

Perhaps, perhaps together we will suddenly get a warm welcome,

In your temple, I will carry my prayers.

In my temple, you will live safe as a pilgrim,

My doubt will be your certainty.

 

Love the spring, I love the fall,

The opposite is possible, of course, possible.

A crown or a kingdom maybe founded for me or for you

Maybe one on the straight path.

 

Ask my God, I will ask your God,

Maybe this time we will not miss.

You'll go to me, I'll go to you,

Replace your solution with my enigma.
