It’s called Keli, Keli. You can find it on YouTube but it’s heart-wrenching to watch the music video since it’s dedicated to the men and boys who died at Meron on such a joyous celebration.

I don’t know how to process the meaning of the words. Like what’s the message behind these words?
For those who don’t have YouTube or don’t want to watch the video, there was a rough translation in one of the comments:

“Hashem, I call to you by day,
but you do not answer me.
Hashem, hashem, why did you forsake me?”

Yeah I didn’t want to post it on purpose, because the tragedy is still fresh, 2 weeks later. People could still be mourning, or processing it...

Ah, I can delete my reply if you want. I thought it was a beautiful tribute to all of the kedoshim.

It’s okay. You can leave it.

It is beautiful, but trying to process the words.

I know it’s from tehilim, but I’m pretty sure I’m taking the words very very literally.

I think they were meant literally when Dovid hamelech said them. I don't think I are taking it the wrong way. He was being hunted down for years and years by his father in law and he felt forsaken, a least in that moment. Even so he still cries out to Hashem in his despair.

Wow what a beautiful song.
You hear the pain in the music and the words, especially knowing it was a friend he lost.
The question isn't a lack of emuna, but one of trying to understand.
Hashem we know this is all from You, You have a grand plan, we just don't see it. We feel like You have left us. Please show us You are there, and remind us that this is from you.
It was good to hear this now, as it is still fresh, but unfortunately, as time goes on, every day it's a bit less.

Esther Hamalka also said this when she went to the palace of Achashverosh.
