Contemporary Jewish music is really cool. This song i learned two years ago and I just love it.

E-sah ei-nai el he-ha-rim, e-sah ei-nai el he-ha-rim

Meiayin yavo, yavo ezri, meiayin yavo, yavo ezri

Where will my help come from?

Meiayin yavo, yavo ezri, meiayin yavo, yavo ezri

Where will my help come from?

Where will my help come from? Where will my help come from?

My help will come from God, Maker of heaven and earth

My help will come from God, Maker of heaven and earth

E-sah ei-nai el he-ha-rim, e-sah ei-nai el he-ha-rim

Meiayin yavo, yavo ezri, meiayin yavo, yavo ezri

Meiayin yavo, yavo ezri, meiayin yavo, yavo ezri

Where will my help come from? Where will my help come from?

My help will come from God, Maker of heaven and earth

My help will come from God, Maker of heaven and earth

Hebrew Words

For those who do not know hatikvah means The hope.  This is not only the Israeli national anthem but its one of my favorite Jewish melodies. I used to sing this growing up all the time and got to sing it in front of my congregation last year for a service. It was beautiful.:)

Kol ode balevav
P’nimah Nefesh Yehudi homiyah

Ulfa’atey mizrach kadimah
Ayin l’tzion tzofiyah.

Ode lo avdah tikvatenu
Hatikvah bat shnot alpayim:

L’hiyot am chofshi b’artzenu –
Eretz Tzion v’Yerushalayim

Od lo avda tikvatenu,
Hatikva bat sh’not alpayim,
Lihyot am chofshi be’artzenu
Eretz Tziyon virushalayim.

English Translation

As long as deep within the heart
A Jewish soul yearns
And toward the edges of the east
An eye to Zion looks

Our hope is not yet lost,
The hope of two thousand years,
To be a free people in our land
The land of Zion and Jerusalem.

Mi shebeirach avoteinu
M’kor hab’racha l’imoteinu
May the source of strength,
Who blessed the ones before us,
Help us find the courage to make our lives a blessing,
and let us say, Amen.

Mi shebeirach imoteinu
M’kor habrachah l’avoteinu

Bless those in need of healing with r’fuah sh’leimah,
The renewal of body, the renewal of spirit,
And let us say, Amen
