"Vatispalel Chana"





On a mountain of Israel two women are known
One walks with children, while one walks alone
Day after day turns to year after year
The yearning inside turns to pain she can’t bear

No words can console her, no love can replace
Her arms start to tremble, her whole body shakes
A womb oh so empty, a heart filled with pain
Her grief knows no boundaries and tears form like rain

Vatispalel Chana, she prayed all the while
Have I been forgotten, don’t I get a child?
I don’t ask for many, just give me one
In return your maid Chana will give you her son

Vatispalel Chana, na na na na na na na
Vatispalel Chana, she prays for a child

Eili HaCohen watches from far
Daughter of Israel tell me who you are
Your whispers have traveled, your home will be blessed
So now go in peace for he’ll grant your request

Her tefillos accepted, her prayers are heard
He gives her a child, she gives Him her word
A son only borrowed, a son she would raise
Her joy knows no boundaries and G-d she does praise

Vatispalel Chana, she turns to the skies
Hashem You’re my Savior, Hashem upon High
Ein Tzur Kelokaynu, Hashem You are One
And blessed be Your Name for You gave me a son

Vatispalel Chana I turn to the sky
Hashem you’re my savior, Hashem upon High
Ein Tzur Kelokaynu, Hashem You are One
And blessed be Your name for You gave me a son
And blessed be Your name, now I’ll give You my son

Vatispalel Chana, na na na na na na na na
Vatispalel Chana, and she prayed for a child
