NEW YEAR! Let's welcome the New Year by praising its beauty and glory! Fun short video from JCC Prague

I Always Want Eyes/ Natan Zach

I always want eyes to see

The beauty of the world and to praise the beauty

This wonder which has no blemish and to praise

The one who made it so beautiful

And full, so full of beauty

And I will not stop praising, yes I will not stop praising

And when I fall I will get up – even just for a moment – so that they don’t say

He fell, but rather he got up even for one moment to praise

With his final eyes

And the praise will not cease.

אֲנִי רוֹצֶה תָּמִיד עֵינַיִם/ נָתָן זַךְ אֲנִי רוֹצֶה תָּמִיד עֵינַיִם כְּדֵי לִרְאוֹת אֶת יְפִי הָעוֹלָם וּלְהַלֵּל אֶת הַיֹּפִי הַמֻּפְלָא הַזֶּה שֶׁאֵין בּוֹ דֹּפִי וּלְהַלֵּל אֶת מִי שֶׁעָשָׂה אוֹתוֹ יָפֶה לְהַלֵּל וּמָלֵא, כָּל כָּךְ מָלֵא, יֹפִי. וְאֵינֶנִּי רוֹצֶה לְעוֹלָם לִהְיוֹת עִוֵּר לִיפִי הָעוֹלָם כָּל עוֹד אֲנִי חַי. אֲנִי אֲוַתֵּר עַל דְּבָרִים אֲחֵרִים אֲבָל לֹא אֹמַר דַּי לִרְאוֹת אֶת הַיֹּפִי הַזֶּה שֶׁבּוֹ אֲנִי חַי וְשֶׁבּוֹ יָדַי מְהַלְּכוֹת כְּמוֹ אֳנִיּוֹת וְחוֹשְׁבוֹת וְעוֹשׂוֹת אֶת חַיַּי בְּאֹמֶץ, וְלֹא פָּחוֹת מִכֵּן, בְּסַבְלָנוּת, סַבְלָנוּת בְּלִי דַּי. וְלֹא אֶחְדַּל מֵהַלֵּל. כֵּן, לְהַלֵּל לֹא אֶחְדַּל. וּכְשֶׁאֶפֹּל עוֹד אָקוּם – וְלוּ רַק לְרֶגַע – שֶׁלֹּא יֹאמְרוּ הוּא נָפַל. אֶלָּא הוּא קָם עוֹד לְרֶגַע לְהַלֵּל בְּעֵינַיִם אַחֲרוֹנוֹת אֶת שֶׁלְּהַלֵּל לֹא יֶחְדַּל.
