Music: Haninah Kratchevsky
On the shore of the Sea of Galilee
Stands a castle of many splendors,
A Godly-garden is planted there–
And a tree that does not stir.
Who dwells there? Only a boy
Like a bird in the midst of a forest,
He learns there the Holy Writ
From the mouth, the mouth of Elijah.
Hush! A wave that does not flow.
Every bird that soars
Stands still and listens–
