Rosh Hashana
On Rosh Hashana

Lyrics & melody: Naomi Shemer

On Rosh Hashanah, on Rosh Hashanah,

In my garden bloomed a rose.

On Rosh Hashanah, a white sailboat

Suddenly set anchor by the shore.

 

On Rosh Hashanah, on Rosh Hashanah,

Our heart responded in ancient prayer:

May the year, beginning a new today

Be wonderful and special in every way.

 

On Rosh Hashanah, on Rosh Hashanah,

In the autumn sky bloomed a first cloud.

On Rosh Hashanah,

Rising like a memorial flame,

In the meadow bloomed the first squill.

 

On Rosh Hashanah, on Rosh Hashanah,

Our heart responded in ancient prayer:

May the year, beginning anew today

Be wonderful and special in every way.

 

On Rosh Hashanah, on Rosh Hashanah,

Bloomed a melody - new and unknown,

And overnight its strains did resound

From every casement in town.

 

On Rosh Hashanah, on Rosh Hashanah,

Our heart responded in ancient prayer:

May the year, beginning with a song

Be wonderful and special in every way.
