ONE DAY – a song for Rosh HaShanah/The Day of Shouting

A great song from Latma TV that is also a great prayer for peace, love unity and Truth. A call to the One God who instituted the Festival of Yom Teruah, the Day of Shouting. (See lyrics below)


One Day, One day …

Perhaps is a year we’ll learn to smile quietly,

And not to surrender to every enemy and madman,

To see clear headedly

Who’re our foe and who’s our brother

Just have a little patience

The truth – that’s all – is stronger than everything

My whole life, I’m always learning

How not to be afraid

And keep on SHOUTING

That we need to learn at last

That its no shame to be right

One day, one day, Le- chayim

One day, one day,  I pray

That it’s a year without strife

Sanctions or boycotts,

On a city or town, oil or wine,

Parking or nothing, the UN rantings

Without uprooting or destroying like fools.

Because not every wish will be granted

No … no …
Not to get in the dumps

Even if the whole world is angry.

When the darkness covers all,

That’s the time to recall, soon comes the dawn

My whole life I’m always learning

How not to be afraid,

And say again and again, even if it all looks awful, a dead end,

There’s One who guards us!

One day, one day, Le-chayim

One day, one day,  I pray

It’ll happen one day, just hold on the whole world will change,

Won’t fear what’s right. Without hate and division, only harmony and love.

So from Latma to you – Have a Happy New Year.
