Ad Ana by Azamra published on 2013/04/24 13:04:05 +0000 This song was featured on an album called "World on its Side" by HaMakor. Composed and arranged by Gavriel Saks. Vocals by Nachman Solomon and Gavriel Saks. Piano and synthesizers by Gavriel Saks, guitar by Rebbesoul. The lyrics are Hebrew words taken from Psalm 13, interspersed with original English words that serve to interpret and loosely translate the text at various points. The song describes the soul's experience during periods of intense personal struggle. What others then see as "daytime," I experience as darkness and pain, and no efforts or intellectual comforts can be effective. There is only the gnawing question--"how much longer?" Yet there is also comfort and hope—there is at least a God to turn to. God is light, and the moment "He looks at me", my eyes are lit up.
