Hashem Says, "I'll Be There"

Time for a smile:

Upset about lockdown, Coronavirus and everything you have to do until Pesach? You don't know where the money or strength to cope with this will come from? Hashem has a message from Motown, by way of lead singer Levi Stubbs and the Four Tops - here it is:

Lyrics by Dozier Lamont Herbert, Holland Brian, emuna adaptation by Rabbi Lazer Brody

Performance, The Four Tops, 1966 (see below, it's a classic)

Now if you feel that you can't go on (can't go on)
Because all of your hope is gone (all your hope is gone)
And your life is filled with much confusion (much confusion)
Until happiness is just an illusion (happiness is just an illusion)
And your world around is crumbling down, beloved child

(Reach out) Come on child reach on out for Me
(Reach out) Reach out for Me
Hah, I'll be there with a love that will shelter you
I'll be there with a love that will see you through

When you feel lost and about to give up (to give up)
'Cause your best just ain't good enough (just ain't good enough)
And your feel the world has grown cold (has grown cold)
And your drifting out all on your own (drifting out on your own)
And you need a hand to hold, child

(Reach out) Come on child, reach out for Me
(Reach out) Reach out for Me
Hah, I'll be there to love and comfort you
And I'll be there to cherish and care for you

(I'll be there to always see you through)
(I'll be there to love and comfort you)

I can tell the way you hang your head (hang your head)
You're not happy now, now you're afraid (you're afraid)
And through your tears you look around (look around)
But there's no peace of mind to be found (no peace of mind to be found)
I know what your thinking
You're a loner, alone and on your own, but child

(Reach out) Come on child reach out for Me
Reach out, just look over your shoulder
I'll be there to give you all the love you need
And I'll be there you can always depend on Me
I'll be there
