The little bird is calling,
It wishes to return.
The little bird is wounded,
It cannot fly but yearn.
It’s captured by the vultures,
Crying bitterly,
Oh, to see my nest again,
Oh, to be redeemed.

The little bird of silver,
So delicate and rare,
Still chirps amongst the vultures,
Outshining all that’s there.
How long, how long it suffers,
How long will it be,
When will come the eagle,
And set the little bird free.

The little bird is Yisroel,
The vultures are our foes,
The painful wound is Golus,
Which we all feel and know,
The nest is Yerushalayim,
Where we yearn to be once more,
The eagle is the Moshiach,
Whom we are waiting for.

Thanks for posting, but it's a different song! By London Girls Choir, not Tzlil V'Zemer! It's an older sister writing about her younger sister who's getting married.

I have the CD and it's a beautiful song but I don't remember all the words and it's been awhile since I listened. Maybe I should listen again.

A relative of mine was in camp Bais yaakov when this song was written as a color war song. I asked her if the correct version is "oh to be redeemed " or "oh to be with thee". She said it's "with thee"

Time stands still
My sister is a bride
Countless memories....(can’t remember what’s next
I can remember the very same day
When it was my turn to fly away


My little one now you are grown
Facing the world together alone
It’s up to you from today


Anyone know the rest?

OP, I was an older single and I used to listen to this song all the time but I’m also blanking on a lot of the lyrics.

I’ll add what I can remember...

How Time stands still yet flies so fast
My sister is a bride
Countless memories all but past
My sister is a bride
I can recall the very same day
When it was my turn to fly away
My mother said the same words to me back then


My little one continue to grow
Keep Hashem with you where ever you go
It’s up to you from today

My little one now you are grown
Facing the world together alone
My little bird is flying away

I remember a part of it too

I can remember the very same day
When it was my turn to fly away
My mother said the same words to me that day
My little one continue to grow
Keep HaShem with you wherever you go
My little bird is flying away

I think she means this:

????

My sister is a bride

???

Memories ???

My sister is a bride

My little bird has come of age
Who would believe
We’ve reached this stage
She’s leaving the nest to build a new home of her own

In the past
You were happy to be sheltered by us
In our family
Now someone else is taking her under his wing

My little one
Continue to grow
Keep Hashem with you, wherever you go
It’s up to you from today

The two of you
Now you are grown
Facing the world
Together alone

My little bird is flying away

Fly away

My little bird has come of age
In our storybook
She’s turning the page
A fresh start in life
Beginning all over again

I can recall the very same day
When it was my turn to fly away
My mother said the same words
To me back then

My little one
Continue to grow
Keep Hashem with you wherever you go
It’s up to you from today

The two of you
Now you are grown
Facing the world
Together alone

My little bird is flying away

???

My sister is a bride

I can recall
The very same day
When it was my turn
To fly away

My little one
Continue to grow
Keep Hashem with you
Wherever you go

It’s up to you from today

The two of you
Now you are grown
Facing the world
Together alone

My little bird is flying away...


(Can anyone help fill in the question marks? I would play this at my daughter's wedding (it will happen one day, right?) but I would cry too much!). Also - if anyone is interested in learning to add closed captions to videos, please pm me
