L'David (By David)    

L'David (By David)



This song carries within it the calm that comes with knowing that Hashem loves us and shelters us. There is only Him. See the light, and sing along.

 



Songs I've seen over the years are messages, lessons, insights, and stories that are cloaked in a melody. And when delivering a message, timing is everything. 
 

For ten years, I've had a tune dancing around my mind originally written by Shai Itzhar Winberg, a rousing melody waiting to be released. It was nearly forgotten. But it was really waiting for its moment. 
 

Then the Coronavirus struck and the world turned upside down. Anxiety, worry, and fear ran through the streets like rivers- the panic was real. The tune came back to me.  

 
לֹא יִירָא לִבִּי  My heart shall not fear. 
 

We don't view the Days of Judgement with panic and worry, even though our lives hang in the balance. For us, the awe is fused with joy and confidence. Why? Because the Judge, the King who will decide our fate, is also the Source of light and salvation. So, I shall not fear.  

 

L’Dovid, we will recite Psalm 27 every day throughout this season. 

 

אוֹרִי וְיִשְׁעִי  Hashem, my light and my salvation. 

 

This song carries within it the assurance, the faith, and the calm that comes with the knowledge that He loves us and shelters us. 


כִּי אַתָּה עִמָּדִי Because You are with me. 

 

In times of uncertainty and confusion, we cling steadfastly to these words, to this reality. 
 

There is only Him. There is no reason to fear. See the light, and sing along.  

 

 

 

 

Lyrics 

 לְדָוִד ה' אוֹרִי וְיִשְׁעִי 

By David - Hashem is my light and my salvation 

 

 מִמִּי אִירָא 

Whom shall I fear? 

 

 ה' מָעוֹז חַיַּי 

Hashem is the stronghold of my life 

 

מִמִּי אֶפְחָד 

Whom shall I dread? 

 

 אִם תַּחֲנֶה עָלַי מַחֲנֶה 

If an army were to besiege me 

 

לֹא יִירָא לִבִּי 

My heart would not fear 

 

אִם תָּקוּם עָלַי מלחמה

If war were to arise against me 

 

בְּזֹאת אֲנִי בוֹטֵח 

In this I trust 

 

גַּם כִּי אֵלֵךְ בְּגֵיא צַלְמָוֶת 

Even though I walk in the valley overshadowed by death 

 

 לֹא אִירָא רָע 

I will fear no evil 

 

כִּי אַתָּה עִמָּדִי 

For You are with me  

 

I have no fear inside me, I know that you’re always with me.  

You’re always by my side.
