AGADELCHA

Agadelcha Elohei kol neshamah
Ve'odecha berov pachad ve'eimah
(x2)

Be'omdi toch kehalchah
Tzur leromem
Lecha ekrah
ve'ekof rosh vekomah

Reki'ei rum -
Halo nata bemivtah?
Veha'aretz yesadah al belimah (x2)

Hayuchal ish chakor et sod yotzro
Umi hu Zeh berov pachad ve'eimah

Meromam Hu alei kol peh velashon
Asher hifli ve'asah kol bechochmah

Veyitgadal begoy kadosh ve'elyon
Veyitkadash shemei rabah be'almah (x2)

I WILL PRAISE YOU

I will praise you, God of all souls
And I will thank you with great fear and awe
(x2)

As I stand in your congregation,
Stronghold to be praised
To you I will bend the knee
and bow head and body

The high heavens -
Has He not stretched them forth with his speech?
And He founded the earth upon nothingness

Can a man investigate the secret of his Creator,
And who He is, with great fear and awe?

He is praised with every mouth and tongue
He who did wonders and did everything wisely

He will be made great with a holy, high people
May His great name be sanctified in His world. (x2)

Note:
Sadnat Sh'chunat Hatikva [The Hatikva Neighborhood Theatre Workshop] was the musical and theatre group Ofra Haza began performing with as a teenager.
She appeared on four albums as part of the Workshop before she began making solo albums.
On Workshop albums, Ofra is sometimes the lead singer, sometimes one of the singers, and sometimes not there.
She doesn't sing on Agadelcha but we include this in the Ofra Haza song list because of the group.
