Mama Rochel - Abie Rotenberg/Yaakov Shwekey 
Journeys Volume 3


With the rising sun, on her wedding day,
She raised her eyes to the Heavens,
And she thanked Hashem, for the man of truth
With whom she would build a nation.

But with nightfall came, Destiny betrayed,
The veil concealing another.
Yet her sisters shame, not her shattered dreams,
Took hold of her heart and her senses.

(Chorus:)
Mama Rochel,
cry for us again,
Won’t you shed a tear for your dear children?
If you raise your sweet voice now as then the day will come

Mama Rochel, cry for us again,
Won’t you shed a tear for your dear children?
Bi’zchutaich v'shavu vonim lig’vulom
In a roadside grave she was laid to rest
In solitude, forever
But her voice gave hope to the broken hearts
Of her daughters and sons bound for exile
When her plaintive cry gained divine consent
A challenge to her Maker
Can the mercy of, mere flesh and blood
Run deeper than Yours, our Creator?
(Chorus:)

Now your voice is still, as you heed the call
Of m’mi kolaich mi’bechi
It’s our Father’s will, He who made us all
Dare we ask of you to defy Him?
Yet a frightened child, numb from pain and grief
Remains forlorn and uncertain
Clinging to the faith that it can be heard
As it cries out to its mother
Mama Mama vain noch amol
Treren zoltz du gissen un a tzohl
Beten fun Bashefer In Himmel, b’kol rom
Mama Mama vain noch amol
Tzeren zoltz du gissen un a tzohl
Bi’zchuseich v’shavu vonim li’gvulom
Rochel Imeinu s’ee kolaich
Shuv shifchi kamayim dimataich
B’chim nah al banim asher galu v’al sivlam
Rochel Imeinu s’ee kolaich
Shuv shifchi dimah lifnei Konaich

Bi’zchuseich v’shavu vonim li’gvulom
Mama Rochel cry for us again
Won’t you shed a tear for your dear children?
If you raise your sweet voice now as then the day will come
Mama Mama cry for us again
Won’t you shed a tear for your dear children?
Bi’zchutaich v'shavu vonim lig’vulom
Bi’zchutaich v'shavu vonim lig’vulom
