Prayers in Song

Shiru la'Adonai - Sing unto God

-Psalm 96:1

Haporeis Sukkat Shalom

Baruch atah, atah Adonai haporeis sukkat shalom
Shalom aleinu v'al kol amo yisrael


V'al yisrushalayim v'al kol amo
V'al yirushalayim shalom.


(Cantor Jeff Klepper)

Peace Will Come

Od yavo shalom aleinu, od yavo shalom aleinu, od yavo shalom aleinu, v'al kulam.
Salaam, aleinu v'al kol haolam, salaam, salaam.
Salaam, aleinu v'al kol haolam, salaam, salaam.
Od yavo shalom aleinu, od yavo shalom aleinu, od yavo shalom aleinu, v'al kulam.

Peace will come to us, peace will yet come to us,
Peace will come to us, and everyone.
Salaam, peace for us and for all the world, peace, peace.

(Words and music by Sheva)

Open Up Our Eyes

Open up our eyes teach us how to live
Fill our hearts with joy and all the love You have to give.
Gather us in peace as you lead us to your name
And we will know that You are one.

(Cantor Jeff Klepper)

Mi Shebeirach

(Version of the traditional prayer for healing. The opening line can be translated as "May the One who blessed our fathers, the Source of Blessing for our mothers." In the second verse, "r'fuah sh'leima" means "a full healing.")

Mi Shebeirach avoteinu, M'kor hab'rachah l'imoteinu.
May the Source of Strength, Who blessed the ones before us,
Help us find the courage, to make our lives a blessing,
And let us say - Amen.

Mi Shebeirach imoteinu, M'kor hab'rachah la'avoteinu.
Bless those in need of healing, with r'fuah sh'leima.
The renewal of body, the renewal of spirit.
And let us say - Amen.

(Words and music by Debbie Friedman)
