Nasu – נָשְׂאוּ
Nas’u neharot Adonai, Nas’u neharot kolam.
Nas’u neharot Adonai, Yis’u neharot dochyam.
Mikolot mayim rabim, adirim mishb’erei yam.
Mikolot mayim rabim, Adir bamarom Adonai.
Eidotecha ne’emnu me’od.
L’veitcha na’avah kodesh,
Adonai le’orech yamim.
נָשְׂאוּ נְהָרוֹת ה’. נָשְׂאוּ נְהָרוֹת קוֹלָם
נָשְׂאוּ נְהָרוֹת ה’. יִשְׂאוּ נְהָרוֹת דָּכְיָם
מִקּלוֹת מַיִם רַבִּים אַדִּירִים מִשְׁבְּרֵי יָם
מִקּלוֹת מַיִם רַבִּים אַדִּיר בַּמָּרוֹם ה
עֵדוֹתֶיךָ נֶאֱמְנוּ מְאד
לְבֵיתְךָ נָאֲוָה קּדֶש, ה’ לְארֶךְ יָמִים
The ocean sounds, Holy One,
The ocean sounds its thunder,
The ocean sounds its pounding.
And above the thunder of the mighty waters,
more majestic than the breakers of the sea
is the Holy One, majestic on high,
If only you can hear the sound.
Your wisdom and teachings continue to endure;
It’s beautiful and grand, to come into Your holy house,
Holy One, for all times.
Psalm 93: 3-5
Melody by Josh Warshawsky
Above all the noise
can we find the right frequency?
Louder than the crashing of the waves is the voice of God if we can only find a way to listen. Where do you hear it?
