Hebrew Lyrics

im nin'alu


The gates of the wealthy may be locked but the gates to the
upper world are always open El Chai The living Source is
beyond even the angels that all arise on the wind El Chai
For they rise to the presence..knowing and praising the
essence in constant motion..created at the beginning
creatures of pure spirit and flame making a great sound of
holiness grabbed in the brilliance of the presence: El
each with six wings flying spinning singing sweet song
gathering in shifting patterns all form the glory of El
Chai. We shall rise beyond beyond

This song is sung in Hebrew-Yemenite...with all the peculiarities of the pronunciation. Gimel is J..Vav is Wa..all the vowels are completely different from standard Hebrew. I tried to write a phonetic version of the song as sung by Ofra Haza. In this song Rabbi Shalom Shabazi (Yemen..16th century) imitated the vision of Ezekiel. THIS SONG IS NOW LINKED ON THE HEBREW SONGS DOT COM WEBSITE, WITH THANKS TO ZEMERL. . . . . . . . . .
