Notes
-  "Shofar/ram's horn of the Messiah." In Jewish tradition, the Messianic coming is to be heralded by a speical sounding of the ritual musical instrument of Judaism, the shofar. "When Messiah comes, King David will take up his harp to sing the Psalms, and Moses will lead us into the Holy Temple rebuilt. Now, mother Rachel weeps for her wandering children. Oh, Jeremiah, strengthen our spirits. May Almighty God send our salvation soon." Source: Heskes, Irene, Yiddish American Popular Songs 1895-1950. (General)
