Synopsis:
In 1959, Lavry wrote three popular songs: Kach Tov Li (I Feel So Good), Opus 283, Hikiti La’isha (I waited for the woman), Opus 284, and Boker Al Hachof (Morning on the Beach). The three songs are located on the same page in a Lavry’s opus book and all three were recorded the same day by soprano Netania Davrath and the Kol Israel Symphony Orchestra (The Broadcasting Service Orchestra).

The melody of the song Boker Al Hachof (Morning on the Beach) corresponds beautifully with the lyrics, narrates the experience of the morning waterside stroll, and radiates joy and lightness.

Lyrics:
(transliterated from Hebrew to English)

Haderech laboker nogahat,
Aliz hachof uvahir,
Roked me’eilav lo kol tza’ad,
Nifla hayekum vetza’ir.

Hanefesh ksuma ve’oreget
Niset be’ikvei hagalim,
Mar’ot ha’ofek mineged
Besod hapituy mitgalim.

Haru’ach lotfa velochshet,
Bdayot me’olam rachok,
Bachur zro’otav ka’eshet
Nischaf birnana uvitzchok.

Chotza na’ara vetzo’helet
Levein raki’a vayam,
Mizmor lamerchav velatchelet
La’or hanitzchi vekayam.
