Shir lama'alot

Joseph Karduner

Shir lama`alot. Esa einai el heharim:
me'ayin yavo ezriy?
I will lift up mine eyes unto the mountains:
from whence shall my help come?

Ezriy me'im Adonai,
ose shamaim ve'aretz.
My help cometh from Adonai,
who made heaven and earth

Al yiten lammot raglecha
al yanum shomerecha.
He will not suffer thy foot to be moved;
He that keepeth thee will not slumber.

lo yanum velo yiyshan shomer yisrael.
He that keepeth Israel doth neither slumber nor sleep.

Adonai shomerecha
Adonai tsilecha al yad yeminecha.
Adonai is thy keeper;
Adonai is thy shade upon thy right hand

yomam hashemesh lo yakeka
veyareach balailah.
The sun shall not smite thee by day,
nor the moon by night

Adonai yishmarecha mikol ra'ah
yishmor et nafshecha.
Adonai shall keep thee from all evil;
He shall keep thy soul.

Adonai yishmar tsetcha ubo'echa
me'ata ve'ad olam.
Adonai shall guard thy going out and thy coming in,
from this time forth and for ever.


  1. oh I absolutely love his music. We listen to it very often, if not every day! I agree, it gives me much strength too. You can listen to a few of his albums here . My favorite is Road Marks - The Whole World.

    thanks for the links, I tried the sample music but for some reason it would not open for me I even downloaded 'realplayer' in hopes of being able to listne still to no avail... I'm sure it is good though. Tell me did you get your music here in the states or did you order it from Israel?
