MODEH ANI (I Give Thanks)

ON WAKING IN THE MORNING

This is a song of thanksgiving.  Beautiful. Each phrase perfectly constructed..  First rendition is more traditional, but it’s subtitled. Listen to it first, then go to the one by the boys.  Their rendering is their own.

SUNG BY TZEMED YELED

 

THIS ONE SUNG BY SIMCHA LEINER

 

HERE THE SONG IS *ATTEMPTED* BY THE REBE & A FEW YOUNG FELLOWS WHO HAVE HAD TOO MUCH TO DRINK!

At least we can give thanks that drunken young buds, themselves, wish to give thanks.

I offer my thanks to you

I offer my thanks to you, every morning
For having returned me my soul1
I offer my thanks to you for the clothes
You have laid on my body
To keep me from the cold, you protect me
I offer my thanks to you, every morning
For the light, for the fact that I am alive
I thank you for the bread
You have put on my table
So I won’t know hunger, and so I wo’t feel pain
I offer my thanks to you for my countless smiles
For my talents and for all my songs
All of my songs are Idedicted to you
Know, know that I thank you
I will cry for you, your glorious name, I will call for you ya2
For you my life for you my thanks
I will call for you ya, I will call for you ya
I offer my thanks to you, every morning
For the strength, for my father and for my mother
I offer my thanks to you, for the rain you poured on my fields
To care for my loved ones, you gave me my life
  • 1. According to judaisim god takes the soul at night, and returns it in the morning. For this jews thank god as part as the modeh ani prayer(not this song).
  • 2. A way to call god in judaism.
