T. from the Haifa community has sent us a song, beautifully performed. The music is by Nurit Hirsch and the lyrics by Shimrit Or.

Listen to the song here

Words:

Good News

He is drawing near
He is coming slowly
He stretches out his hand to us
On a white donkey
He is drawing near
With his smile
He brings good news.

Just one more hour
One more hour
Every eye lash a tear
Brings him ever closer
On a white donkey
He is drawing near
With his smile
He brings good news.

If only, if only
He would already arrive
If only, if only
He would come in peace
Perhaps, perhaps,
If we desire it, it is not a dream
Indeed, if we desire it, it is not a dream

He is drawing near
He is coming slowly
He will open every heart
With his generous hand
On a white donkey
He is drawing near
With his smile
He brings good news.

He is drawing near
He is coming slowly
He is already not far off
The way is not long
On a white donkey
He is drawing near
With his smile
He brings good news.

If only, if only
He would come in peace
Perhaps, perhaps,
If we desire it, it is not a dream
