    Belong

    BELONG c 2002 Rahel (Ann Rachel Silverman-Limor) (Aug. 26)


    Now the sun is rising in the East – ever slowly I arise
    From a peaceful slumber I have ceased – the daylight greets my eyes


    In the quiet of the early morn – birds sing their early morning song
    Catching moments just as they are born – yes, this is where I belong


    CHORUS:

    And the wind whispers softly in my ear – telling stories only I can hear
    In these precious moments everything just seems so clear
    Yes, this is where I belong – yes, this is where I belong


    Now the sun is setting in the West – the sky is turning deeper shades of blue
    From the hustle bustle I can rest – and sing this loving song to you


    CHORUS:

    And the wind whispers softly in my ear – telling stories only I can hear
    In these precious moments everything just seems so clear
    Yes, this is where I belong – yes, this is where I belong


    Crickets chirping softly everywhere – oh how I love their song
    I breathe the sweetness of the evening air – yes, this is where I belong

    CHORUS: 


    And the wind whispers softly in my ear – telling stories only I can hear
    In these precious moments everything just seems so clear
    Yes, this is where I belong – yes, this is where I belong
    Yes, this is where I belong – yes, this is where I belong

    Whisper by the Sea לחש על הים

    WHISPER BY THE SEA 1982 (English lyric 2000)

    Migrant gulls Speckle the shoreline and you… are there
    The waves, they come and they go – and you…are there
    Thinking, thoughts of the day – you want to run… run away
    The wind, whispers a message that you don’t hear
    Clouds, changing their faces and you…depart
    While the sea shelters her secrets as you turn away.As you turn away

  • 02:31 Story Lyrics
    Before Mountains בטרם הרים יולדו

     

    Before the mountains were born. Before you set forth the earth and the inhabited world.

    From world to world You are HaShem

     

    ב  בְּטֶרֶם, הָרִים יֻלָּדוּ--    וַתְּחוֹלֵל אֶרֶץ וְתֵבֵל;
    וּמֵעוֹלָם עַד-עוֹלָם,    אַתָּה אֵל.

    Soul Solitary

    SOUL SOLITARY c 2001 Ann R. Silverman-Limor aka Rahel

    In the midst of the lush summer green, and the golden brown orange of fall.
    I am but just one single soul. I am here in a desert.
    I’m lost in a strong gust of wind and I’m covered in dust.
    Yet I feel I’ve been touched by the ALL. A presence in me I can feel.
    I call You to break down the walls. Please give me Your hand.
    Break me loose from this sleepy haze. Enveloped complete so am I.
    Standing alone in the dust. I hear no one answer.
    Why must I stand here alone? Why must I touch no one? Why must I remain a soul solitary?
    Humbled before You I kneel. So scattered. I hang my head.
    In silence I pray You will hear this prayer of the numb.
    For love surely I’m worthy still, of standing alone never more.
    I’m wanton of Your guiding hand; for strength and for courage.
    Why must I stand here alone? Why must I touch no one? Why must I remain a soul solitary

    Pierrot

    PIERROT c 1997 Ann R. Silverman-Limor aka Rahel

    Available at: CD; Time Passes By, Track 6


    Oh - on a lonely night. The moon is in the sky and you're looking about
    Can you touch the light as you reach up
    Climbing on a moonbeam - you fly away
    To worlds up above - Floating on a cloud on high
    The winds whisk you away. Shedding just one tear - on your own
    Wait - are you listening?You can hear the sound of someone who cares
    Showing you the way as the raven flies
    Traveling down your path - following your senses, you see
    The lines are never drawn - and time is endless
    Calling you from afar - shedding just one tear; Coming home
    Say - have you ever tried. Searching for your heart - reaching within
    Spreading out your wings as the eagle soars
    Climbing higher heights - to the edge of the world
    You call out your name - standing on the peak
    A voice calls you back - shedding just one tear; Coming home

    Babylon על נהרות בבל

    "Sing to us. Sing to us your sacred songs."

    They weep, "But how can we sing our sacred songs on foreign soil?"
