Garin: This Summer I Learned

L’chu N’ranana page 130

L’chu n’ranana l’Adonai

Naria l’tzur yisheinu

Go forth singing songs of joy to God! We will shout to the rock of salvation!

Let us sing out to God, maker of all sure and strong

Let all of creation from mountain to sea hear our song!

For all of the wonder in all of God’s light, we rejoice

So now let us listen with all of our hearts to hear God’s voice!

The people of Israel shall keep Shabbat, observing it in every generation as a covenant for all time. It is a sign forever between Me and the people of Israel, for in six days God made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day God rested from labor. (Exodus 31:16-17)

A thought has blown the marketplace away.

There is a song on the wind and joy in the trees.

Shabbat has arrived in the world

Scattering a song in the silence of a night,

And eternity utters a day.
