4. Ruth and Naomi

Music and Lyrics by Linda Hirschhorn © 1989

We'll return with you unto your land,
return unto your land.
Go back, go back, my daughters,
I feel the wrath of God's hand.

Shovnh, shovnh, bnoti,
yts’h vi yad-Hashm.

Ruth then said to Naomi
“Keep me not from your side.
Whither thou goest, I will go.
Your land and God shall be mine.
I will go, I will go, I'll sleep with you.
’lch, ’lch ve’lin. And I will sleep.”

A stranger is only as strange
as the distance we keep from our hearts.
It's not ours to complete the task,
only ours to start.

“Do not keep me from your side,
I'll follow you.
Whither thou goest, I will go.
I'll sleep with you.
I will go, I will go, I'll sleep with you.
’lch, ’lch ve’lin. And I will sleep. Ve’lin.
