Halleluya

Lyrics: Yankele Galpaz

Music: Manny Gal

A man returns with his daily harvest

Modest and meager

And on his back troubles of sand

Are burdening him like a tower

And suddenly he sees before him

His daughter’s two eyes

And then he sings, and they are with him

Singing Halleluya

 

Halleluya, and this is the song

Arising from all the corners of the town

When a man and his daughter’s two eyes

Sing Halleluya

 

A man builds his buildings

From vapour and cards

Every day he works hard and labours

Every day they are shuffled

 

However facing the destruction of his cards

The sun rises above him

And he collects them

And sings Halleluya

 

Halleluya and this is the song

Arising from all the corners of the town

When the man collects all his cards

And sings Halleluya

 

My life is set out before the Lord

He knows my path

And all my songs are like prayers

Being sent into the distance

And when I reach the end of the path

I will close my life quietly

And a new young and living song

Will be sung Halleluya

 

Halleluya and this is the song

It will still rise throughout the town

And it is new and it is young and living

And sing Halleluya
