In various shuls during Hakafos on Simchas Torah, I have heard the well known song "Tov Li Toras Picha" (טוב לי תורת פיך מאלפי זהב וכסף" - תהלים קיט עב") with a chorus in Yiddish. Does anyone know the words of this verse? Also, what is the origin of this song?


טוב לי תורת פיך מאלפי זהב וכסף

"The Torah of your mouth is better for me than thousands of gold and silver." (Tehillim 119:72)

עס איז בעסער צו לערנען די הייליגע תורה מער ווי אלע גאלד און זילבער

(Yid.) It is better to learn the Holy Torah, more than all gold and silver.
