Lulay - Psalm 27


Lulay (from Psalm 27)

A song from the closing verses of Psalm 27.


לׄוּלֵ֗ׄאׄ הֶ֭אֱמַנְתִּי לִרְאֹ֥ות בְּֽטוּב־יְהוָ֗ה בְּאֶ֣רֶץ חַיִּֽים

קַוֵּ֗ה אֶל־יְה֫וָ֥ה חֲ֭זַק וְיַאֲמֵ֣ץ לִבֶּ֑ךָ וְ֝קַוֵּ֗ה אֶל־יְהוָֽה׃

Lulay he’emanti lirot b’tuv
B’tuv Yah ba-eretz chayyim (2x)
Kavey el Yah chazak v’ametz
Chazak v’ametz libeykh (2x)

I have the faith that I surely will see
God’s goodness throughout my life (2x)
Hope in God and have courage
Trust in God all day long
Hope in God and have courage
Trust that your heart will be strong.
