There was a very evil king, his name was Pharaoh
He tried to wipe the Jews out and for that he is to blame
Hashem destroyed his plans because we kept our Jewish name.
Is your name Chaim, is your name Moishe, Dovid, Yitzchok, Nachman, Yisroel
Is your name Dina , is your name Sorah, Chana, Leah, Rivkah or Rochel.
You see that every Jewish child received a special name
When they were young and oh so small before they learned to crawl
And if you’ll stand and shout your name and join along with me
We’ll tell the world, the whole wide world that we’re proud as can be.
I hope that you will tell me yours and I will do the same.
You’ve got a name, you’ve go a lovely Jewish name
Remember that your Jewish name’s a very special thing
So use it all the time no matter where you may be
Stand up proud and shout it loud and sing along with me.
My name is _____ _____ and I’m not a bit ashamed
You’ve got a name you’ve got a lovely Jewish name
Now that I have told you mine won’t you do the same.
A year has gone by
In many ways I grew
I’m older, I’m smarter
So I should be frumer, too.
New hachlatos I’ll make
This day, every year
Because, on a birthday
Just like on Rosh Hashonoh
We all account for every deed
The same way, on a birthday
A cheshbon nefesh is what we need.
In a truly proper way
Surely, this year will follow
A shnas hatzlocho in every way.
They march with utmost pride
Knowing their king is at their side.
Without warning the enemy strikes
They turn wanting to retreat
Staying will surely cause defeat.
But the king says we went so far
I assure you we will succeed
Listen to my voice, my decision you shall heed.
The soldiers stop unsure
But their loyalty remains so strong
Knowing that the king is never wrong.
The king is Moshiach who rules over us all
He leads us to our victory not letting us fall
His words are our command
We must listen no questions to be asked
He is the king his word is last.
He told us to spread that Moshiach is here
Don’t be deceived by the darkness, it will soon disappear
Although hard to perceive
We must listen, no questions to be asked
He is the king this is our task.
By Shabbos Candles
By Shabbos candles burning brightly
I sit alone with my memories
Times of beauty, times of joy
How vast is now the void.
A golden era I recall
Hashem I don’t understand
Oy! To live Moshiach I do strive
Oy! But Rebbe I promise
‘Cuz I know that you’re with me
Stranded on an island so far away from home.
His will to continue slowly fades away
His thoughts of his future depressing and gray.
A civilized life I’ll lead here
I’ll struggle and strive and I’ll prosper and thrive
With the hopes that my rescue is near.
Connected to you we must be
For a chossid I am, I will carry out your plan
Your return inspiring me.
A Shabbos has passed
My son you’re not alone
Darkness of night
It’s in our hands
The work is being done
Watching his flock graze nearby,
Yet a tune of hope wings its way to the sky
For David sings praise to Hashem.
Waiting to ascend his throne,
Still his melodies play full of trust, full of love
The faith in the One Above.
And then a pledge of acceptance,
His banner of royalty raised
To crown His king acclaiming his reign
A nation as one we proclaim -
Yechi hamelech a pledge of acceptance
One by one forces unite,
Barcheinu Ovinu kulonu kiechod
With the eternal Geulah.
A jewel crown await to be placed
On the Rebbe, Moshiach ou king,
So hand in hand together we stand
In achdus let our voices ring.
