"Vayehi Or" as written by Steven John Wilson, Kobi Farhi, Yossi Sassi, Matti Svatizki, Uri Zelha and Alon Miasnikov....
This life is dark and lifeless grey
One stands alone, in life we decay
An uphill struggle every day
We sell our souls, we do betray
But know this as you drown within you
The crimson touch of hope still fights
Through the veil truth doth shine
Let there be light

[Hebrew]
גואל שבור באש מסתור
להב חרבו, מבט עינו טהור
[English:]
“Broken redeemer in fire hidden
The blade of his sword, pure is his sight”
[Romanization:]
Goel shavur vaesh mistor
Lahav ḥarbo mabat eno tohor
(x2)

In the bleak house you do dwell
Heartbeat drowns in the sound of the knell
An hourglass, clock ticking away
Pray to idols the sentence to sway
But know this as you’re lost within you
The crimson touch of hope in sight
Through the veil truth doth shine
Let there be light

[Hebrew]
כמוהו בחושך מהלכים אין ספור
תקוות ליבם אחת היא -- ויהי אור
[English:]
“As him in darkness, countless walk
Let there be light - Thee I invoke”
[Romanization:]
Kamohu baḥoshek maheliḥim en spor
Tekvot libam aḥat Hi-Vayehi Or
