SHABAT SHEL CHASADIM A SHABBAT OF GRACE
Yemey hachol kmo ruach memaheret,
afim leshum makom bein layla leven yom,
Veaz ani pitom ne'or
im shemesh chaychanit,
umashak knafayim bakarim,
Rak beshabat ani shomea tziporim.
Shabat, shabat, ivri le'at le'at,
ani od yeled kat,
im rak espor chagim veshabatot,
Shabat, shabat, shabat shel chasadim,
shabat shel yeladim,
Shabat shel hashaot hachi yafot.
Enai ro'ot rak pa'am beshavua,
iver tzvaim mikrav yom alef ad yom vav,
Veaz pitom ani nolad al deshe rechani,
haprachim krovim venotztzim,
Rak beshabat ani roe et haetzim.
Rishon, sheni, shlishi yamim baluach,
afilu yom shishi enenu yom ishi,
Veaz pitom ani im mi sheahava nafshi,
veshushai shavim elai kulam,
Rak beshabat ani ohev et haolam.
Weekdays are like a wind that is rushing
no where, between day and night,
And suddenly I wake up
with a smiling sun,
and the sound of wings in the fields,
Only on Shabat I hear the birds.
Shabat, shabat, go slow, don't end,
I am still a little boy,
If I count only holidays and shabats.
Shabat, shabat, shabat of grace,
shabat of kids, shabat of the most beautiful hours.
My eyes see only once a week,
I am color blind from Sunday to Friday,
And suddenly I am born on fragrant grass,
the flowers are near and sparkling,
Only on Shabat I see the trees.
Sunday, Monday and Tuesday are only days on the calendar,
Even Friday is not a personal day,
And suddenly I am together with my loved ones,
And all my senses come back to me,
Only on Shabat I love the world.
