During the next few days, in honor of American Independence Day, the Fourth of July, we will present a number of songs about America in Jewish languages.
Today we present, "Ich Dank dir Gut far America" (I thank you, God, for America), performed by the Cantor Leibele Waldman:
"Every Jew should remember, every morning, as he prays,
To sing the following song:
'I thank you, God, for America
The great, beautiful country…
Land of freedom, equality and democracy…
I traveled the whole world…
When I returned to America I kissed the ground,
And sang in joy:
I thank you, God, for America
The great, beautiful country.'"
