Purim

Who Knows?!

By Rabbi Label Lam

Who knows… what lion’s in the סוד (secret)
Until the ייו (wine) flowed
And the tamed old king of beasts
Strolled from the Purim feast

Stroked his handsome mane
And began to entertain
Exchanging fear for perfect joy
Pure truth with no alloy

Oh dance oh Jewish flames
And recite the holy names
The words just can’t suffice
Beyond the whole world’s price

Oh dance oh Jewish flames
Shout the holy names
So each step will ignite
Another holy light

Now still and dark ‘n black letters
Release your self-made fetters
Break through the coarse black earth
And discover your self-worth

Within this one’s name
Beneath the black exterior
Points a brilliant flame
To a source of so superior

Dance oh Jewish flames
You spell the holy names
With lion’s strength you stride
And find what’s sweet inside!
