In the Land of dry sand
Between Kadesh and Bered
There lies a pool of water
Oh! In fact He is a Well!
Beer Lahai Rohi! What a fountain!
Different in purpose from the Rest!
How I wish He was a mountain
One would have said it’s for conquest!
Oh Vagabond! Won’t you Rejoice?
For in your journey here and there
There is a place full of care
And with a person who thus bless!
Beer Lahai Rohi! A place of Reproof
But from someone who could approve!
Runaway servant was not spared
As she took her mistress with contempt!
Go back home! The angel said!
‘Submit to her and be blessed,
For your seed shall be great
If only you will obey!
Beer Lahai Rohi! She exclaimed!
He sees me! Yes I am Sure He did!
Beside This well with clarity
As she journeyed back to destiny
Beer Lahai Rohi! A place to meditate
The Promised Child will go but not in haste
Staying in the field to contemplate
Of what the maker will relate!
Dearly Beloved, Never Hesitate!
Run to The Well without Delay!
He is not a cistern that can decay
But a Well spring with peace to serve!
