ODE TO BETHLEHEM

(Joel Chernoff) Micah 4:1-5 & Micah 5:2-5

As for you Bethlehem Ephrata
For you who are little among Judah
From you shall He come
Come forth to Me
Who is to be ruler is Israel

Refrain:
And His name shall be called Wonderful
And His name shall be called Mighty God
And He shall rule all nations
For He shall be our peace

In latter days will the Lord’s house be established
Nations will flow unto Him
Then will they say let us go to God’s mountain
And there He will teach us His marvelous ways

And His name shall be called Wonderful
And His name shall be called Mighty God
And He shall rule all nations
For He shall be our peace

Then will they beat their swords into plowshears
Their spears into pruning hooks
No more shall Nation lift up sword against nation
And they shall not learn to make war anymore

And His name shall be called Wonderful
And His name shall be called Mighty God
And He shall rule all nations
For He shall be our peace

SING O BARREN ONE

(Joel Chernoff) Isaiah 54


Sing O barren one
Come and sing a joyful song
For the shame and blush of your youth
Shall be not remembered more

Sing O barren one
I will prosper you again
For your children shall grow and grow
Established in righteousness

For a brief, brief moment
Did I turn away from you, from you
Now in great loving kindness
Will I come and gather you

Sing O barren one
For through mountains and hills should move
My loving kindness
will never depart from you

For a brief, brief moment
Did I turn away from you, from you
Now in great loving kindness
Will I come and gather you

EPHRAIM

(Joel Chernoff) Hosea 11:1-9

When Israel was young I loved him
From Egypt I did call him to be my son
For it was I who taught Ephraim to walk
And I who picked him up in my arms
Yet they did not know that it was I who loved them
With tender cords of love I did lead them
For I was to them as one who lifts a yoke
And bending down I lovingly fed them

Do lai lai lai lai lai lai lai
Do lai lai lai lai lai lai lai
Do lai lai lai lai – lai lai lai lai lai
Do lai lai lai – Do lai lai lai – lai

How can I lift you up my son Ephraim?
How can I lift you up Israel?
For my heart’s overturned, my compossions are kindled
But again will my anger be burned, be burned

When Israel was young I loved him
From Egypt I did call him to be my son
For it was I who taught Ephraim to walk
And I who picked him up in my arms
Yet they did not know that it was I who loved them
With tender cords of love I did lead them
For I was to them as one who lifts a yoke
And bending down I lovingly fed them

Do lai lai lai lai lai lai lai
Do lai lai lai lai lai lai lai lai
Do lai lai lai lai – lai lai lai lai lai
Do lai lai lai – Do lai lai lai – lai……………..

ELI, ELI

(Joel Chernoff and Daniel Ben-Yosef)

My light in times of darkness
My strength in times of weakness
My joy in times of sadness
Eli, Eli Eli y’di-di

Lai lai lai lai lai lai lai
Doo dai dai – do dai dai dai
Lai lai lai – lai lai – lai lai lai lai lai
Doo dai dai – do dai dai dai

A father to the fatherless
A comfort of the sorrowing
The singing of the nightingale
Eli, Eli Eli y’di-di

Lai lai lai lai lai lai lai
Doo dai dai – do dai dai dai
Lai lai lai – lai lai – lai lai lai lai lai
Doo dai dai – do dai dai dai

Ho-tzur shel am Yis-ra-el
The desire of all nations
The hope of generations
Eli, Eli, Eli Y’di-di

Hebrew translation: My God, my God, my God my beloved.

QUEEN Of SHEBA

(Joel Chernoff and Daniel Ben Yosef) Various Scriptures

The Queen of Sheba came many long thousands of miles
Solomon’s wisdom to hear
Yet a greater than Sol is standing by you
Is standing ever so near

Well, far away you’re willing to go
For treasures and fool’s gold
Yet here we stand with outstretched hand
The seed of Heaven to sow

The tribes of our fathers were willing to fight
For the land our God gave to them
Yet we in our day have fled from the light
And lost a knowledge of Him

Well, far away you’re willing to go
For treasures and fool’s gold
Yet here we stand with outstretched hand
The seed of Heaven to sow

So come, come again to the Kingdom of God
Let us look for the One He has sent
The Messiah King is living today
Let us follow in the way that He went

Well, far away you’re willing to go
For treasures and fool’s gold
Yet here we stand with outstretched hand
The seed of Heaven to sow…..

I WILL REFINE THEM

(Joel Chernoff) Zechariah 13 & 14

I will refine them as refining silver
I will test them as testing of gold
And they will call upon My name
And I will answer for then I will say

This is My people
And they in return shall say
The Lord, He is my God
So shall it be throughout all the land

There’s a day a coming which is the Lord’s
When plunder’s taken away from your midst
For in that day living waters shall flow
And there’ll be light in the City of Gold

This is My people
And they in return shall say
The Lord, He is my God
So shall it be throughout all the land

SONG Of RUTH (WEDDING SONG)

(Joel Chernoff) Ruth 1:16-17

Wherever you go
There you will find me
Wherever you lodge
That is my home
Wherever you die
There I’ll be buried
Your people are mine
Your God is my God

Do not ever urge me to go
Or desert your side and leave you
For may God to me
And more if anything
But death separate you from me

Dai dai dai – dai dai dai dai
Dai dai dai dai – dai dai dai

For may God to me
And more If anything
But death separate you from me

Do not ever urge me to go
Or desert your side and leave you
For may God to me
And more if anything
But death separate you from me

For may God to me
And more If anything
But death separate you from me

RIVERS Of BABYLON

(Joel Chernoff) Psalm 137:1-6 & Isaiah 60:1

By the rivers of Babylon
As we sat and wept for Zion
By the moping willows in her midst
We sadly hung there our harps

Our captors said come sing a song of joy
How can we sing when joy is gone
If I forget Jerusalem
May my right hand its cunning lose

How our hearts pine away for Jerusalem
Golden city of our God
Bitter are the tears we cry for thee O Lord
So far, far away from You

Behold, arise and shine
Yeshua comes, the nations shall rejoice
Then will we all return
With Him to Zion’s land
Jerusalem, behold your salvation comes

How our hearts pine away far Jerusalem
Golden city of our God
Bitter are the tears we cry for thee O Lord
So far, far away from You

And now we look for yet a better day
When the Holy One returns
To restore Eternal Jerusalem
And to bring our people home
And to bring our people home
And to bring our people home
