Chaim Gold: I'm Not Ashamed

Chaim Gold is one of the special new talents in the Jewish music world. Here is a beautiful clip, filmed in Jerusalem and in the Judaen Desert, where he sings, "I'm Not Ashamed". This is a moving song in Yiddish; the translation of the lyrics appears below the clip. We here at the Beams wish Chaim tremendous success, and we're sure that we'll be hearing more good things from him in the future. Enjoy this...

I'm not ashamed
Even when I don't know
I don't understand at all
In what kind of world I am today

The city isn't familiar
I don't know the ways
They come towards me
The streets are strange and cold

I keep on praying
Every day of the week to You
To see the beauty
And to serve You with joy in Your home
And to live my life
Sanctifying Your name

Each day anew
I cry out
Father, light up my way
Like a deer in the desert
Not far from the water
Father, bring me to the fountain

Open my eyes
So that I may see
Your endless love for me
To run towards you with yearning
Escaping from nothing
Father, Hashem is One

I know that You see
Every prayer
Even the smallest deed
You know every action

And already today
Will I reach the water, the wellspring
And be with all the righteous

The day is coming closer
When all of us together will go
And even if I wonder
How can we rise to see it
We will be redeemed from this exile
With Hashem's help Each day anew
I cry out
Father, light up my way
Like a deer in the desert
Not far from the water
Father, bring me to the fountain

Open my eyes
So that I may see
Your endless love for me
To run towards you with yearning
Escaping from nothing 
To dance "Hashem is One"
