THE JUDGE

(Joel Chernoff and Daniel Ben Yosef)


In your cold dark night

I only want to hold out the light

I won’t speak the same old words

Because I know you’ve heard

I don’t want to moralize Just look into your eyes

The truth is everywhere The truth is in the air

 

If you can wish and pray He’ll take you into day

It doesn’t matter where you’ve been

The Judge knows your story from beginning to end

 

People talk and people say That darkness is your friend

You’re sure to find the Day of the Judge in the End

But if you feel afraid Don’t try to run and hide

He’ll find you in your dream and then you realize

That the Judge is in love with you

HA-TISH-KACH

(Joel Chernoff) Isaiah 49:15-16

 

Ha-tish-kach i-shah oo-lah
Me-ra-chem ben bit-nah
Gam e-leh tish-kach-nah
Vah-no-chi lo esh-kah-chekh
Hen al-kah-pa-yim
Cha-ko-tikh
Cho-mo-to-yikh
Neg’-di ta-mid

Can a woman forget her nursing child
Or fail to have compassion upon him?
She may forget, but know it or not,
Israel you are always before Me…

Behold I have engraved my people
On the palms of My hands
Your walls are always before me, Israel
How can I forget?

Thus saith the Lord, if the sun that lights the day,
Or the moon and stars that light the evening sky…
If these laws I forget or before me no more be,
Only then will I forget you, Israel…

Ha-tish-kach i-shah oo-lah
Me-ra-chem ben bit-nah
Gam e-leh tish-kach-nah
Vah-no-chi lo esh-kah-chekh
Hen al-kah-pa-yim
Cha-ko-tikh
Cho-mo-to-yikh
Neg’-di ta-mid

BARUCH HASHEM

(Joel Chernoff and Daniel Ben Yosef)

The heart of the Jew is Jerusalem
The Messiah his only King
And when in the soul of the Jew He reigns
Peace to the city He brings

(Chorus)

Ba-ruch ha-Shem ha-Ma-shi-ach, Yeshua
Ba-ruch ho-Shem A-do-nai
Ba-ruch ha-Shem ha-Ma-shi-ach, Yeshua
Ba-ruch ha-Shem A-do-nai

Behold the Son of Abraham,
Sent by God our people to redeem
When He came forth from Bethlehem
I heard the angels sing

Ba-ruch ha-Shem ha-Ma-shi-ach, Yeshua
Ba-ruch ho-Shem A-do-nai
Ba-ruch ha-Shem ha-Ma-shi-ach, Yeshua
Ba-ruch ha-Shem A-do-nai

Bless His Name for His Name is good
Yeshua ha Mashiach is the Name I love
Bless His Name for His Name is good
Sanctified us by His blood

Now we drink His wine of joy
Filled with the Spirit of Adonoi
United in the love Messiah brings
Now we sing to Elohim

Ba-ruch ha-Shem ha-Ma-shi-ach, Yeshua
Ba-ruch ho-Shem A-do-nai
Ba-ruch ha-Shem ha-Ma-shi-ach, Yeshua
Ba-ruch ha-Shem A-do-nai……

Hebrew translation:

Blessed is the name of the Messiah Yeshua (Jesus)
Blessed is the name of the Lord.

THE SACRIFICE LAMB

(Joel Chernoff)

 

Have you ever heard Messiah has come?
It says in His Word to cleanse every one
Atonement He made iniquity bore
That we can find life in Him evermore

The Sacrifice Lamb has been slain
His blood on the alter a stain
To wipe away guilt and pain
To bring hope eternal
Salvation has come to the world
God’s only Son to the world
Jesus the one for the world
Yeshua is He

The prophets of old speak much of Messiah
His death is foretold the purpose is clear
Isaiah did say ’twas for an atonement
To give us a way that leads not to death

The Sacrifice Lamb has been slain
His blood on the alter a stain
To wipe away guilt and pain
To bring hope eternal
Salvation has come to the world
God’s only Son to the world
Jesus the one for the world
Yeshua is He

So brothers of mine look not to yourselves
For we are but one we all need His help
We’ve broken the Law but He paid our debt
That we can find life by Yeshua’s death

The Sacrifice Lamb has been slain
His Blood on the alter a stain
To wipe away guilt and pain
To bring hope eternal
So final atonement has come
And brought us new hope by God’s Son
If you will believe in your heart
Yeshua you’ll know

TIME IS RUNNING OUT

(Joel Chernoff)

 

Woke up one morning something on my mind
The minutes are ticking away for mankind
Prophecy shows me in so many ways
Waste not a moment, we’re in the last days

Time is running out, time is getting short
People are dying that don’t know the Lord
We got to tell them, we got to care
The love He gives us, we got to share

The Hebrews are back in their land to stay
No Arabs no Russians can chase them away
‘Cause God has His hand in the affairs of men
And just as the Bible says, things are coming to an end

Time is running out, time is getting short
People are dying that don’t know the Lord
We got to tell them, we got to care
The love He gives us, we got to share

Come on people that love the Lord
More wasted time we cannot afford
His love’s forever so there’s plenty of room
Bring in the children before their doom

DRA-CHEI-CHAH

(Joel Chernoff) PS. 25:4-5

D’ra-chei-kha Yehovah
Ho-di-‘e-ni or-cho-tei-kha
Lam-dei-ni

D’ra-chei-kha Yehovah

D’ra-chei-kha Yehovah
D’ra-chei-kha Yehovah
Ho-di-‘e-ni or-cho-tei-kha

Hebrew translation: Show me Thy ways, oh Lord. Teach me
Thy paths. Lead me in Thy truth, and teach me, for Thou are
the God of my salvation; on Thee do I wait all the day.

THE LEAST I COULD DO

(Joel Chernoff)

 

Nobody could love me like He did
Nobody could live the life He lived
Nobody could pay the price He paid
For it was a perfect life He gave
The least I could do is love Him too

Everlasting tears flow from His eyes
“Forgive them Lord” is what He cried
His compassion so vast was its domain
That it wiped away sin’s deep; black stain
The least I could do is love Him too

Lord, I feel Your love shine down
And it fills me to the brim
Take my life and lead me on to the deeper side of Him

Lord, how could Your love encompass me
I who have sinned so flagrantly
Violated Your own Holy Word?
Yet upon Your back my sins were hurled
The least I could do is love Him too
The least I could do is love Him too.

Lord, I feel Your love shine down
And it fills me to the brim
Take my life and lead me on to the deeper side of Him

Lord, how could Your love encompass me
I who have sinned so flagrantly
Violated Your own Holy Word?
Yet upon Your back my sins were hurled
The least I could do is love Him too
The least I could do is love Him too
The least I could do is love Him too.

THE NIGHT IS FAR SPENT

(Joel Chernoff)

 

The night is far spent; the day is close at hand
When Jesus comes as the Son of Man
He will come quickly, no man knows the time
To take His children home to mansions in the sky
So why do we slumber
When it is time to rise?
Awake all you sleepers
His coming draweth nigh

So let us walk honestly in His sight
Shedding the old ways, the ones we did in the night
Let’s put on new clothes, the armor of His light
And let’s do His work, before the end of night

The night is far spent; the day is close at hand
When Jesus comes as the Son of Man
He will come quickly, no man knows the time
To take His children home to mansions in the sky
So why do we slumber
When it is time to rise?
Awake all you sleepers
His coming draweth nigh
