Song of the Month: Shvat 5772 / February 2012

This month on the lunar calendar — the month of Shvat — contains Tu BiShvat, the new year of the trees. In honor of that, our Song of the Month for this month is a song which invites us to connect with the divine in the earth, in the heavens, in the heat of fire and the rush of water: in short, in the natural world around us.

The original chant was written by Tony Wrench, and was translated into Hebrew by Shimon Lev Tahor.

Adamah v’Shamayim (Earth and Heavens)

Adamah v’shamayim
Chom ha-esh
Tzlil ha-mayim

Ani margish zot b’gufi.
beruchi, b’nishmati.

Heya, heya, heya, heya
Heya, heya, heya ho (2x)

Ani margish zot b’gufi.
beruchi, b’nishmati.

Love the earth, love the sky
Heat of fire,
Drop of water

I can feel it in my body
in my spirit, and in my soul

Heya, heya, heya, heya
Heya, heya, heya ho (2x)

I can feel it in my body
in my spirit, and in my soul

We’ll use this song in our Shabbat morning worship this month, and also at our various Tu BiShvat seders. Enjoy, and chodesh tov — a good month to you!
