Sabbath Eve Song
Lyrics: Yehuda Amichai
Music: Moshe Vilansky
Will you come to me tonight?
The clothes are already on the line.
The endless war that never ceases
Is now in another place.
And roads return incessantly
Alone like a horse without rider
And the house is closed this evening
With the good and the bad within it.
And we knew very well that the border
Is near and we mustn’t go there
My father prayed
And the earth were finished and all their host
Host and earth have darkened
The lights will soon go out.
The command that heaven has started
Must again be finished by two.
