The Bird Sings – -Perek Shira

“Gam Tzipor Matza Bayis…”(Psalms 84:4)

A twig, a string, some mud and spit

With random things a nest is built

With much love and lots of care

The bird builds a home to share.

Snugly secure in its parents’ nest

Little hatchlings warmly rest.

Why then, my Lord, were we shoved out

Forced in Exile to wander about?

Like a parent bird beats its wings

Shielding its young from dangerous things

We know the day will come when You

Will give us complete protection too.

Not forever will we be forced to roam

Soon G-d will return us safely home.
