lyrics

עֵת לָמוּת
TIME TO DIE
Inspiration: Hebrew Bible (Psalms 22:6, 22:14-15, 22:17, 31:12, 38:5, 39:12, 139:11; Proverbs 30:16; Ecclesiastes 3:2, 3:15)

כַּמַּיִם
נִשְׁפַּכְתִּי
וְהִתְפָּרְדוּ
כָּל־עַצְמֹותָי

I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint

הָיָה לִבִּי
כַּדֹּונָג
נָמֵס
בְּתֹוךְ מֵעָי

My heart is like wax, it is melted within my breast

יָבֵשׁ כַּחֶרֶשׂ
כֹּחִי
וּלְשֹׁונִי
מֻדְבָּק מַלְקֹוחָי

אֲסַפֵּר
כָּל־עַצְמֹותָי
וְלַעֲפַר־מָוֶת
תִּשְׁפְּתֵנִי

My strength is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue sticks to my jaws
I can count all my bones
You lay me in the dust of death

עֵת לָלֶדֶת
וְעֵת לָמוּת

עֵת לַהֲרֹוג
וְעֵת לִרְפֹּוא

A time to be born, and a time to die
A time to kill, and a time to heal

וְאָנֹכִי תֹולַעַת
וְלֹא־אִישׁ
חֶרְפַּת אָדָם
וּבְזוּי עָם

נִשְׁכַּחְתִּי
כְּמֵת מִלֵּב
הִבְאִישׁוּ נָמַקּוּ
חַבּוּרֹתָי

But I am a worm, and not human, scorned by others, and despised by the people
I have passed out of mind like one who is dead
My wounds grow foul and fester

שִׁמְעָה
תְפִלָּתִי

Hear my prayer

תָּם־אָנִי
לֹא־אֵדַע
נַפְשִׁי
אֶמְאַס חַיָּי

I am blameless, I do not know myself, I loathe my life

אַךְ־חֹשֶׁךְ
יְשׁוּפֵנִי
וְלַיְלָה
אֹור בַּעֲדֵנִי

Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light around me shall become night

עֹצֶר רָחַם
אֶרֶץ
לֹא־שָׂבְעָה
מַּיִם

The barren womb, the earth ever thirsty for water

מַה־שֶּׁהָיָה כְּבָר הוּא
וַאֲשֶׁר לִהְיֹות כְּבָ֣ר הָיָה

That which is, already has been and that which is to be, already is

אָמֵן

Amen
