Legend (Agada)
Lyrics:Yakov Fichman
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–
Swallows the
Godly teachings.
