Eli, Eli by Hannah Szenes

Susan Salidor sings this song, the title of which means "Oh Lord, My God." The lyrics were written by Hannah Szenes, a Jewish heroine of World War II, who was killed after being captured in Hungary, during an effort to save Allied prisoners of war and organize Jewish resistance. The music was composed by David Zehavi and the song is copyrighted by Mifalei Tarbuth Vechinuch.

Eli, Eli,
Shelo yigamer leolam,
Ha-hol v'ha-yam,
Rishrush shel ha-mayim,
Barak bashamayim,
Tfilat ha-adam.
