Glykeria: Shabechi Yerushalyim

This video presents Greek singer Glykeria’s Hebrew performance of the Israeli folk song, Shabechi Yerushalayim, together with the Israeli Philarmonic Orchestra. While the original song was written by Avihu Medina, the lyrics, which implore the city of Jerusalem to praise God, are from Psalms 147:12,

PSALMS 147:12-12

 שַׁבְּחִי יְרוּשָׁלִַם, אֶת- ה’; הַלְלִי אֱלֹהַיִךְ צִיּוֹן
כִּי-חִזַּק, בְּרִיחֵי שְׁעָרָיִךְ; בֵּרַךְ בָּנַיִךְ בְּקִרְבֵּךְ

Glorify the LORD, O Jerusalem; praise thy God, O Zion.
For He hath made strong the bars of thy gates; He hath blessed thy children within thee.
