Kol Dodi (The Voice of My Beloved) by Nomi Teplow
Hark! My beloved! There he comes, Leaping over mountains, Bounding over hills.
Sing along in Hebrew to “Kol Dodi” performed by Nomi Teplow. The lyrics are taken from Song of Songs 2:8.
“kol dodi hee-nay zeh bah”
The voice of my beloved! behold, he cometh
“medaleg al heh-hareem – mekapetz al hah-gva-ot”
leaping upon the mountains, skipping upon the hills
“ah-nah dodee v-ah-mar lee koo-mee lakh koo-mee lakh”
My beloved spoke, and said unto me: Rise up
“rah-yah-tee yah-fah-tee oo-lekhee lakh”
my love, my fair one, and come away.
“har-eenee et mahr-ah-eekh ha-shmee-eenee et kolekh”
show me your appearance, let me hear thy voice
“kee kolekh ah-rev, oo-mahrekh nah-veh”
for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely
“anee yeh-shenah v’leebee ehr”
I sleep, but my heart is awake
kol dodee dofek peet-khee lee akhotee rah-yah-tee
Hark! my beloved is knocking: ‘Open to me, my sister, my love
“dodee lee vah-anee lo”
My beloved is mine, and I am his
“kol dodee dofek dofek peet-khee lee”
Hark! my beloved is knocking, is knocking:’Open to me’
