image “Im Bechukosai” – on the path that I

Show you how to go, for that’s the road you know.

Just walk here in my ways, stay here all your days;

But if you leave, don’t grieve,

I’ll always welcome you.

 

Blessings first, then curses – in these sacred verses,

The lessons I gave for my people to save,

Showing you the path, concealing all My wrath;

But if you stray, just pray,

I’ll always welcome you.

 

Grains both old and new – always here for you,

Plenty in your lands, your life within my hands,

Torah’s mighty words take wing like soaring birds;

But if you err, I care,

I’ll always welcome you.

 

Following my lead – everything you need,

More than food and wine, your life is truly mine

Just as in a dream, I step in and redeem;

But if you go, just know,

I’ll always welcome you.

 

Treasures unseen there always have been,

Your hidden reward if you carry my sword,

My words lift you high, and your soul cannot die;

But if you fall, just call,

Know I’ll always welcome you.

חָזָק חָזָק וְנִתְחַזֵּק!

May learning Torah make us strong!
