“I’m Returning to You” by Agam Buchboot (3-Minute Music Video)

Over the last few years, 14-year-old Agam Buchboot has become one of Israel’s most popular singers. Her most recent hit is a love song to Hashem. My favorite line? “Thank you that sometimes it’s hard for me, because only after the darkness light comes to life.”

אתה, אתה בשמחה
אתה בלילות שלי, אני לא לבד
אתה, בכל נשימה
וגם על דמעות שלי אומרת תודה

You, You are in joy
You are in my nights, I’m not alone
You, in every breath
And for my tears, I say “thank you”

תודה על הקול, על כל השירים
על הזכות להיות ילדה שלך, על כל הרגעים
תודה שקשה לי לפעמים
כי רק אחרי החושך בא האור לחיים

Thank you for the voice, thank you for the songs
For the privilege of being your daughter, for all the moments
Thank you that sometimes it’s hard for me
Because only after the darkness light comes to life.

בסוף חוזרת אליך
אתה שומר עליי שלא אפול
אל תעזוב, צועקת אליך
ממך כוחי נתת לי הכל
אוהבת אותך אבא, אלי הגדול

In the end, I’m returning to You
You watch over me that I won’t fall
Don’t abandon me, I scream to You
My strength is from You, You gave me everything
I love you, Father, my great G-d

אתה, אתה בשתיקות
אתה הלב שלי שומע תפילות

You, You are in the silences
You are my heart, listening to prayers

תודה על ילדות, על משפחה
ברוך השם כולם הולכים בדרכך
תודה אם קשה לי לפעמים
כי רק אחרי החושך בא האור לחיים

Thank you for childhood, for family
Thank G-d everyone is going in Your way
Thank You if sometimes it’s hard for me
Because only after the darkness, light comes to life

בסוף חוזרת אליך
אתה שומר עליי שלא אפול
אל תעזוב, צועקת אליך
ממך כוחי נתת לי הכל
אוהבת אותך אבא, אלי הגדול

In the end, I’m returning to You
You watch over me that I won’t fall
Don’t abandon me, I scream to You
My strength is from You, You gave me everything
I love you, Father, my great G-d

  2. it s wonderful whats going on here in israel:mode ani by omer adam.,a huge success,hakol letova by static and benel and now this one! the people of israel definitely love God!

  3. If this is what is popular with the secular crowd in Israel than we can feel hopeful. It is a wonderful song, sung with lots of feeling and the message is so beautiful.

  4. What a voice at such a young age!! Beautiful message, thanks for sharing 😉
