Od Yishama

Jim Jones

Milton Okun

Hebrew Lyrics

Od yeshama be aray yehuda
obekevutzot yerushalayim
kol sasson ve kol simcha
kol chatan ve kol kala
nai n'nai, ditty die dum dum


It is still heard in the land of Judea
And in the squares of Jerusalem
The sound of celebration and joy
The sound of a bride and groom

Song made into folksong by Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach around 1960's. Part of his first album. The source for the lyrics is from the Sheva Brachot/Seven Blessing under the wedding Canopy. Also, see Jeremiah 33:10,11
