Dear rabbi,
I am writing you from the Czech Republic to thank you for your inspiring talk. It made me cry, I am also a teacher of handicapped stsudents in Prague and a guide. I try to spread such positive ideas and smiles, the telling them has such a great impact on people around. You made my day today, thanks one more time. Is there a text of the song so I could use it for my students?

Touching more lives

I learned this song from a young teacher in a previous school I worked in. I then started teaching newly observant and not yet observant students. We sing this song every morning and it starts them off each day with hope and happiness!

Lyrics part2

A big fancy Lexus pulls up. An important person is in there for sure. Inside there sits a famous doctor, the doors open by his chauffeur.
Oy vey, oy vey. He gets the reports and he reads them through. Theres nothing that can be done for you. he's sure that in Shomayim He’s heard and HKBH is following his instructions word for word.
Oy vey, oy vey. I think this and I think thus. Listen here we’ve got a boss, He's bigger than me and He's bigger than you and He's bigger than all of us.
Aydididay ...


When a yid lives with bitochon and emuna, there is no limit to what he can achieve.
When he trusts in HaShem with all his heart when he says ‘I believe’.
I believe, I believe. I believe that to HaShem its all the same.
Kriyas Yam-Suf or one drop of rain.
The galaxies, the stars or a mosquito taking a swim, it makes no difference to Him.
I believe, I believe. I believe that He’s stronger than all of my fears,
that He hears my Tefillos and He counts my tears.
Although it’s tough, He’s there with me, Lo Iro Ro Ki Ato Imodi.
I believe, I believe. I believe in the Eybishter is Kol Yochol,
the Got fie Sharh, fin Rivka, fin Leah in fin Rochel.
The Got fin Avrohom, fin, Yitschok in fin Yaakov.
Fin Zayn Yeshios iz nisht du kain meakev
Oy vey, oy vey. When it comes to yeshuos her iz de mimche. He taught us Ivdu es HaShem besimche.
Trust in me, and you will see, lishuoscho HaShem kivisi.
Iz kave el HaShem chazak veyameitz, be filled with hope and be strong because when you sing and dance for me the malochim will sing along.

Lyrics Part 1

I believe in HaShem
I trust in HaShem
there never is a moment when
that I am alone that I’m on my own
I believe and I trust in HaShem
And I understand that He is holding my hand
And every step is perfectly planned
He is holding me tight so I’ll be alright
I believe and I trust in HaShem

One day a ship was sailing the ocean on the tranquil clear blue sea,
suddenly a storm erupted with thunder and lightning mightily
oy vey oy vey, the goyim started to wail and to cry
the ships turning over we’re all gonna die
the waves are smashing over the mast the ship is not gonna last
oy vey oy vey, the decks are flooded both lower and upper
the leviyoson is going to have us for supper
we’re going to be ground to a pulp and served on a dish
we’re going to be turned into Gefilte fish
but on the ship there sits a Yid, calm and collected different from the rest
the others asked him what’s the matter with you
he just smiles at them and says:


A room filled with investors, bankers and CEO’s
They’re making the deals. We will control how everything goes.
The shares will go up as we decide and we’ll make a fortune on the ride.
Oy vey oy vey, the great investor is suddenly has a very worried frown.
What was meant to go up is now going down.
How did this happen how could it be. What happened to Kochi Veoitsem Yodi?
Oy vey oy vey, I’ll quickly do a straddle or I’ll make a hedge. I’ll save my money from going over the edge. Oh that plan didn’t work. Ouch, it hurts. Oy vey, we’re losing our shirts.
But our yid sits there ignoring it all, it’s not in the hands of bosor vedom.
The banker sits all worried and forlorn and the Yid sings Bekol Rom.

I needed to hear this song

Thank you Rabbi for sharing this. I'm in the Shloshim for my husband who died from metastatic cancer. We married late in life so we have no children. Besides going for Shabbat services in the morning, I have been very much alone on Shabbat. Now, I'll write down these words and sing them to myself when I'm feeling alone.

Rabbi Sytner, June 15, 2021 1:05 AM

My condolences

Dear Dina Leah,
I'm so sorry for your loss. I can't imagine how painful that must be.
May Hashem help you find comfort during this difficult time.
Rabbi Sytner

(7) Stuart Goldman, June 10, 2021 8:12 AM

a penetrating reminder

My friend R Kalman Packouz OB"M used to share: "Hashem loves you. Do your best!" This story and song are also a powerful reminder that the Simple Truths can sustain us in times of challenge. Thank you.

I am trying to keep singing it . I need that now

Music is G-d's Therapy

Music is processed throughout the various regions of the brain and has superior healing qualities. The ripple effect of a good deed through the transmission of music. Thanks Rabbi Tzvi for your uplifting video!

I believe and trust in you. I fear and worry no more. What a beautiful song to share with the world.
