Teshuva Theme Song: Camp Rayim 2010

by Kol Isha October 04, 2011

This heartfelt, timely song was recorded, performed, mixed and mastered by up and coming composer Mendy Fisch, whose song Mehaira was featured on Avi Newmark’s recent Nagila V’Nismicha CD starring Benny Friedman.  Set to the tune of Abie Rotenberg’s classic hit Who Am I,  with lyrics by Mendy Fisch (and special thanks to Dovid Skaist), the song focuses on the fact that we must never lose hope no matter how far we have strayed because with His unconditional love, Hashem is always waiting for us with open arms.

Special thanks to Abie Rotenberg and R’ Mutty Grunberg.

Lyrics:

I have trouble with my words; I’m too scared to move my lips,

As I stand here on Yom Kippur and I try,

I am coming as a pauper, can’t believe all that I’ve done,

So I stand here, my Dear Father, and I cry.

 

Oh, I know it is my job here, to serve you on this land,

But I have slipped and I have stumbled on my way,

So I stand here feeling hopeless, for you know my every thought,

My Dear Father, there is nothing I can say.

 

Don’t you realize My Dear Children, there’s a gate that doesn’t close,

And I’m waiting for your tears to flow its way,

A gift of love I’ve given, it’s your chance to start again,

Say you’re sorry and return to me today

 

Though you think I frown upon you, ‘cuz you may have done things wrong,

I anticipate and wait for your return,

The power of Teshuva, no matter where you’ve strayed,

My Dear Children for your Teshuva I do yearn.

 

I have lied and I have cheated, shown my parents disrespect,

Opportunities for Mitzvos slipped away,

And I stand here saying, “Sorry,” like so many times before,

What’s it worth though, as You judge me, on this day

 

Loshon Hara that I’ve spoken, things I’ve done improperly,

All those Teffilos where my mind had gone astray,

Those chances to learn Torah, that I threw right to the side,

I have nothing. I am speechless. I’m ashamed.

 

Don’t you realize My Dear Children, there’s a gate that doesn’t close,

And I’m waiting for your tears to flow its way,

A gift of love I’ve given, it’s your chance to start again,

Say you’re sorry and return to me today

 

Though you think I frown upon you, ‘cuz you may have done things wrong,

I anticipate and wait for your return,

The power of Teshuva, no matter where you’ve strayed,

My Dear Children for your Teshuva I do yearn.

 


I’m beginning now to realize, that there’s one thing I can do,

And you’re waiting up in heaven patiently,

As my lips now move in prayer, and my eyes well up with tears,

“I am sorry,” My Dear Father, “Forgive me!”

 


Now we realize our Dear Father, though we’ve fallen and we’ve failed,

That Your love will live on for eternity,

We sincerely want to serve You; in our hearts we know it’s true,

So Dear Father will you please say, “סלחתי
