Just One Shabbos

This song is by Mordechai Ben David and appears on the album The English Collection (1998).

Western Wall on Friday night, first time ever there.
Strapped into his knapsack, with his long and curly hair.
He stood there for a while, then broke out with a smile,
Emotion, overwhelming joy, with tears.

The men were dancing there, their hearts so full of love
Sang such happy tunes, to thank the One Above
For showing them the way, for giving them a day
Rest, rejoice, with peace of mind, to pray

Just one Shabbos, and we'll all be free
Just one Shabbos, come and join with me
We'll sing and dance to the sky
With our spirits so high
We will show them all, it's true
Let them come and join us, too

I said, hello, my friend, you seem to be amused
He said, much more than that, I am a bit confused
I know I am a Jew, I was Bar Mitzvah too
But Shabbos, in our home, who ever knew

He asked to join with us, to understand and see
He spent some time with us, in total ecstasy
Next Shabbos came along, his feelings grew so strong
He first began to feel, that he belonged

He found his treasure, made some changes in his life
A brand-new family, his children and his wife
They learn new things each day, to live the Torah way
The message of the Shabbos, they will relate

Now, every Friday night, they go down to the Wall
Invite some people 'round, and they will tell them all
We'll teach them this new song, to join and sing along
Soon we'll all be free, it won't be long
