Jewish Song Sunday --- #10

MBD: Anachnu Maminim

In 8th grade my teacher taught us this song. She was very into it, and brought in the tape, and every day we would sing it before davening. Then that summer when I went to camp I saw that it was the hit song, every body was singing it. It’s a great catchy song, with an important message. As I scroll through my friends Facebook statuses, I keep seeing QassamCount statuses. It looks like the war in Israel is still going on. In these times we have to remember who is really in charge, we can only believe in Hashem to save us from it all.

Anachnu ma'aminim bnei ma'aminim
(We are believers, children of believers)

ve'ein lanu al mi lehisha'en
(And we are not whom to trust)

ela ela al avinu
(Except Our Father)

avinu shebashamaim
(Who is in heaven)

Yisrael, Yisrael betach b'HaShem
(Ysrael, Ysrael relies on HaShem)

ezram umeginam hu
(He is your help and your shield)
