Lyrics

L'KHA DODI

REFRAIN:
Beloved, come—let us approach the Sabbath bride and welcome the coming of our Sabbath, the bride.

STROPHES 1, 2, AND 9:

God, whose very uniqueness is His essence, 
Whose very name is “One,” Had us hear simultaneously two imperatives recorded in His Sabbath commandment: 
Guard the Sabbath, Remember the Sabbath— 
Were the words spoken at Sinai concurrently
That were heard by Israel as one command.
To our one and unique God, then and to His name,
Let there be fame, glory, and praise.

Let us go, indeed hasten to greet the Sabbath, 
For she is the source of blessing. 
From creation’s primeval beginnings that blessing has flowed.
For on the seventh day—the end of the beginning of creation— 
God made His Sabbath. 
But He conceived of her on the first of the days— at the beginning of the beginning of creation.

 

Sabbath, you who are your Master’s crown, 
Come in peace, in joy, in gladness
Into the midst of the faithful of a remarkably special people. 
Come, O Sabbath bride—
Bride, come!
