EL ELOHEY SHAMAYIM

El elohey shamayim
ma chaser li bachayim
Im yesh li kanakan im mayim
velechem ko ta'im

El elohey shayim ma
nidrash lo la'adam
Milvad ahava bishnayim
osher vekesher dam

Chorus:
El elohey me'a cheled
shmor makom li ben ba'echa
Hach pele al kol delet
shmor li achashav vechan
Od avo beshearecha
aval od yesh li zman

Eze olam barata lechulam
Eze olam natata bechinam
Shebney adam yihu livney adam
Az olamcha yihe mushlam

GOD MASTER OF THE UNIVERSE

God master of the universe
what is missing in my life
If I have a jug of water
and such a tasty bread

God master of the universe
what does a man need
Apart from love as a couple,
happiness and blood relations

Chorus:
God of a hundred universes
mind a place for me among your guests
Create wonders on every door,
mind it now and here
I will pass through your gates,
but it is not my time yet

What kind of a world did you create for all
What kind of a world you gave for nothing
People will be human beings
Then your world will be perfect

Greek

 
Ena to chelidoni

Coming soon...

English

 
Ena to chelidoni

A solitary swallow and a costly spring,
For the sun to turn it takes a job of work,
It takes a thousand dead sweating at the Wheels,
It takes the living also giving up their blood.

God my Master Builder, You built me into the mountains,
God my Master Builder, You enclose me in the sea!

Magicians carried off the body of May,
They buried the body in a tomb of the sea,
They sealed it up in a deep well,
Its scent fills the darkness and all the Abyss.

God my Master Builder, You too among the Easter lilacs,
God my Master Builder, You felt the scent of Resurrection!
