Fire in the Forest
This song came to me direct and complete. Like Rebbe Nachman's stories it has many levels of meaning to it. It is dedicated to and in many ways about Rebbe Nachman z"l, or about the sages who have studied and lived Torah. It's about you and me who are emulating the sages and keeping G-D and G-D's Torah in front of us. It's about the fire that ignites within when studying and living a life filled with G-D's word. FIRE IN THE FOREST c 1984 Ann R. Silverman-Limor aka RAHEL CD: Hinay Ma Tov; Track 5; Arranged & Produced by Tofa’ah ---- There is a forest far away from here. There sits a weary man tending his treasures of wrinkles and minding his wares. Blessings and prayers, he sings to the Lord. Thickets of life in the pockets of time. There's a fire in the forest. -- In the heart of illusion burns a steady flame; Glowing in the darkness; Questioning life of the here and there. Guarding the answers. Seekers of light yearning for wisdom. Thickets of life in the pockets of time. There's a fire in the forest. -- Sing to the heavens. Reach for a shining star. Covet the secrets of ageless wanderings. Blessings and prayers. Seekers of light sing to the Lord. Thickets of life in the pockets of time. There's a fire in the forest.
