Russian Boy's Hopeless Plight

  

Edit SongDiscussionHistoryPrint

A Russian's boy hopeless plight,
dreariness fills his night...
Hardship and pain befall him,
his chance of survival is slim

Finding no source of true comfort,
to the Rebbe he turns, with a letter,
Compelled to express to him,
How life could have been so much better.

CHORUS x2:
The boy did not beg for an easier life
Nor for a hope to be free
Vos zol ich ton, az es davent zich nisht [what can I do if I cannot davven (pray)?]
That was the Russian's boy's plea.

As the Rebbe spoke at a farbrengen,
The chassidim gazed on in surprise,
As the Rebbe choked with emotion,
And tears welled up in his his eyes.

CHORUS
