Teshuvah

Ben & Lydia Zaskow

There came one day a prophet-man crying in the wilderness,

He came to tell the people to return, to tell them to repent.

Justice, kindness, love and mercy was the message he did give,

He gave them words of Torah, that by them they should live.

Teshuvah, returning to Torah,

Teshuvah, repentance in our hearts,

Teshuvah, returning out of love,

Oh teshuvah, teshuvah,

Teshuvah M’Ahava,

Teshuvah out of love!

Yeshua, when he came he came to be among His own,

Talmidim He called to follow, to follow Him alone.

He told them that not one stroke will disappear front the law,

He is the living Torah standing in the midst of us all.

Since the days of Messiah in the first century,

We’ve forgotten the root is Israel that supports the olive tree.

And now the scroll once so precious lies tattered in the street,

Come let us mend the pieces together in love and unity.

Scroll of wisdom, scroll of blessing,

Torah scroll of feast and praise.

When the law goes forth from Zion we’ll all walk in His ways.

A minyan from the nations will take hold of the fringes of one Jew

Saying please take me with you for we’ve heard God’s with you.
