GATE OF ENAYIM

I was so proud to be part of this family
When Judah the Lion made me his son’s bride
But my husband was careless, and soon he left me
A widow without any child

I am Tamar, the only hope in this family
Of a new generation for the Lion’s pride
But the second son’s dead too of his own greed
So again I’m a widow without an child

If I must be a trickster
To get what I’ve prayed for
I will….

For I ‘m afraid, but I’m not uncertain
The child must be born.
The chance I take is for the sake of the future.
The Tribe of the Lion must go on
So I will wait
At the gate
Of Enayim.

My father-in-law, Judah, is recently widowed
So there’s a new choice if I have courage enough
I will wait in disguise at the gates of Enayim
And I think he’ll agree when he sees what I’ve done

If I must be a trickster
To get what I’ve prayed for
I will….

For I ‘m afraid, but I’m not uncertain
The child must be born.
The chance I take is for the sake of the future.
The Tribe of the Lion must go on
So I will wait
At the gate
Of Enayim.

I will veil my face
I will bare my breast
I will have Judah’s seed
I will pray G-d provides what we need.

For I ‘m afraid, but I’m not uncertain
The child must be born.
The chance I take is for the sake of the future.
The Tribe of the Lion must go on
So I will wait
At the gate
Of Enayim.
