Oldie of the Week ~ Shimu Melachim - 1970

Presenting Old Jewish Musical Jewels (O.J.M.J) which due to their age are not very well known to the younger generation.

The song will first be posted here on the main page and remain for approximately a week on the right column above the three featured videos of the week.

The fifth song in this series features a beautiful song from Yigal Calek's London School of Jewish Song. The song is called "Shimu Melachim" off of their first album "Ma Navu Al Heharim" released in 1970. Sung by soloists Doody Rosenberg (pictured).

Lyrics:
:שִׁמְעוּ מְלָכִים הַאֲזִינוּ רֹזְנִים אָנֹכִי לַיהוָה אָנֹכִי אָשִׁירָה אֲזַמֵּר לַיהוָה אֱלֹהֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל
:יְהוָה בְּצֵאתְךָ מִשֵּׂעִיר בְּצַעְדְּךָ מִשְּׂדֵה אֱדוֹם אֶרֶץ רָעָשָׁה גַּם-שָׁמַיִם נָטָפוּ גַּם-עָבִים נָטְפוּ מָיִם
:הָרִים נָזְלוּ מִפְּנֵי יְהוָה זֶה סִינַי מִפְּנֵי יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל
(Shiras Devorah, Shoftim 5)

Composed by: Yigal Calek.
Soloist: Doody Resenberg.
