When I see Your light in my eyes
When You lead me to the joy in my heart
When I feel Your goodness all around me
I know, I am not alone, I am not alone

נָתַ֣תָּה שִׂמְחָ֣ה בְלִבִּ֑י Natatah simchah v’libi
בְּקָרְאִ֡י עֲנֵ֤נִי ׀ אֱלֹ֘הֵ֤י צִדְקִ֗י
B’kor’i aneini elohay tzid-ki
חָ֝נֵּ֗נִי וּשְׁמַ֥ע תְּפִלָּתִֽי: Choneini u-sh’ma t’filati
נָתַ֣תָּה שִׂמְחָ֣ה בְלִבִּ֑י Natatah simchah v’libi

When we sense the warmth of Your presence
When You lay us down in safety and in peace
When we find ourselves falling into the depths of our despair
You are there to give us release, to give us release - CHORUS

When we’ve abandoned all hope of human kindness
Raise us up with strength to face the day
When the road ahead is narrow and winding
Make wide our way, make wide our way CHORUS

Natatah simchah v’libiנָתַ֣תָּה שִׂמְחָ֣ה בְלִבִּ֑י
(Translation: You put joy in my heart; when I call on You, answer me, God of my righteousness; be gracious to me and hear my prayer)
