Yoseph My Son - Lyrics

Verse 1:

A child was born into this world in 1933

A blessing for a Jewish home in Frankfurt Germany

His father taught him Aleph Beis, he learned to read and write

Each night he heard his mother say these words to him

 

Chorus:

Yoseph my son, the L-rd our G-d is one

G-d is very near, Yoseph my dear

Yoseph my son, the L-rd our G-d is one

Do not fear, we'll always be together

 

Verse 2: 

Yoseph was a boy of nine in 1942

He had a secret hiding place like all young children do

Horrified, he saw them take his Mom and Dad away

Alone, he heard his mother's final words to him

 

Chorus 2:

Yoseph my son, take some food and run

G-d is very near, Yoseph my dear

Yoseph my son, the L-rd our G-d is one

Do not fear, we'll always be together

 

 

Verse 3:

To feel his hand on the Western Wall was a lifelong dream come true

He made it to Jerusalem, the city of the Jew

And he opened up his Siddur as he had done each day

And he prayed to G-d for his mother and his father

 

And an old man stood there praying for a son he thought long dead

"That voice! That's my Father's voice!" was all that Yoseph said

He looked into the old man's eyes, tears came down his face

And he fell into his father's embrace

 

Chorus 3:

Yoseph my son, the L-rd our G-d is one

Come! Your mother's here, Yoseph my dear

Yoseph my son, a miracle has been done

From now on we'll always be together
