Yiddish Lyrics

Oyfn veg shteyt a boym
Shteyt er ayngeboygn
Fort a yid keyn erets-yisroel,
Mit tsvey farveynte oygn.

Got, got, groyser got,
Lomir davenen minkhe.
Az mir veln kumen keyn erets-yisroel,
Vet zayn a groyse simkhe!


On the road there stands a tree,
It is bending over.
A Jew is traveling to Israel
With weeping eyes.

God, God, great God,
Let us say the miche prayer,
When we come to Israel,
There will be great rejoicing!

This popular Zionist song expresses the religious Jews' yearning for Eretz Isroyel, despite the arduous journey. My father sang this song all the time. The words he used were exactly the same as on your site. I know the music. Is there any way to transmit it to you? Maybe i can somehow get the notes. Im not good at the computer and so I DONT KNOW IF THIS IS POSSIBLE.
