On Monday Casey sang Kol Ha'Olam Kulo. She learned the song from Holly Hoffnung of the Portland Folk Music Society, at their Singtime weekend in 2019.

Kol Ha'Olam Kulo /Gesher Tzar Me’od - A Very Narrow Bridge
Hebrew lyrics by Rabbi Nachman of Breslov (Ukraine) (1772-1810)
Music by Rabbi Baruch Chait (Feb. 23rd 1946 - )
Transliteration
Kol ha-o-lam ku-lo, gesher tzar me’od, gesher tzar me’od,
gesher tzar me’od.
Kol ha-o-lam ku-lo, gesher tzar me’od, gesher tzar me’od.

V’ha-i-kar v’ha-i-kar, lo l’fached, lo l'fached klal
V’ha-i-kar V’ha-i-kar, lo l'fached klal

Kol ha-o-lam ku-lo gesher tzar me’od, gesher tzar me’od.
Translation
Kol ha-o-lam ku-lo gesher tzar me’od
all/whole world bridge narrow

V'ha-i-kar lo l'fached klal
not to fear at all

The whole world is a very narrow bridge;
the important thing is not to be afraid.
The whole entire world is a very narrow bridge,
a very narrow bridge, a very narrow bridge.
All of the world is a very narrow bridge,
A very narrow bridge.

And above all above all, is not to fear, not to fear at all;
And above all above all, is not to fear at all.
Hebrew lyrics

כָּל הָעוֹלָם כֻּלּוֹ גֶּשֶׁר צָר מְאֹד
גֶּשֶׁר צָר מְאדֹ גֶּשֶׁר צָר מְאֹד
כָּל הָעוֹלָם כֻּלּוֹ גֶּשֶׁר צָר מְאֹד
גֶּשֶׁר צָר מְאֹד
וְהָעִיקָר וְהָעִיקָר לֹא לְפַחַד לֹא לְפַחַד כְּלָל
וְהָעִיקָר וְהָעִיקָר לֹא לְפַחַד כְּלָל
