We are gifts and we are blessings, we are history in song

We are hope and we are healing, we are learning to be strong

We are words and we are stories, we are pictures of the past

We are carriers of wisdom, not the first and not the last

 

Chorus:

L'dor vador nagid godlecha

L'dor vador, we protect this chain

From generation to generation

L'dor vador, these lips will praise Your name

 

Looking back on the journey that we carry in our heart

From the shadow of the mountain to the waters that would part

We are blessed and we are holy, we are children of Your way

And the words that bring us meaning, we will have the strength to say

 

Chorus:

L'dor vador nagid godlecha

L'dor vador, we protect this chain

From generation to generation

L'dor vador, these lips will praise Your name

Adon olam asher malach, b'terem kol y'tzir nivra. L'et na'asah b'cheftzo kol azai melech sh'mo nikra. 

V'acharei kichlot hakol l'vado yimloch nora. 
V'hu hayah, v'hu hoveh, v'hu yihyeh b'tifarah. 

V'hu echad v'ein sheni l'hamishil lo l'hachbirah, b'li reishit b'li tachlit, 
v'lo haoz v'hamisra. 

V'hu eili v'chai goali 
v'tsur chevli b'eit tsrah, v'hu nisi umanos li, 
m'nat kosi b'yom ekrah. 

B'yado afkid ruchi 
b'et ishan v'airah. 
v'im ruchi g'viati 
Adonai li v'lo irah.

 

אֲדוֹן עוֹלָם אֲשֶׁר מָלַךְ, 
בְּטֶרֶם כָּל יְצִיר נִבְרָא. 
לְעֵת נַעֲשָׂה בְחֶפְצוֹ כֹּל, 
אֲזַי מֶלֶךְ שְׁמוֹ נִקְרָא. 

וְאַחֲרֵי כִּכְלוֹת הַכֹּל, 
לְבַדּוֹ יִמְלוֹךְ נוֹרָא. 
וְהוּא הָיָה, וְהוּא הֹוֶה, 
וְהוּא יִהְיֶה, בְּתִפְאָרָה. 

וְהוּא אֶחָד וְאֵין שֵׁנִי, 
לְהַמְשִׁיל לוֹ לְהַחְבִּירָה. 
בְּלִי רֵאשִׁית בְּלִי תַכְלִית, 
וְלוֹ הָעֹז וְהַמִּשְׂרָה. 

וְהוּא אֵלִי וְחַי גֹּאֲלִי, 
וְצוּר חֶבְלִי בְּעֵת צָרָה. 
וְהוּא נִסִּי וּמָנוֹס לִי, 
מְנָת כּוֹסִי בְּיוֹם אֶקְרָא. 

בְּיָדוֹ אַפְקִיד רוּחִי, 
בְּעֵת אִישַׁן וְאָעִירָה. 
וְעִם רוּחִי גְּוִיָּתִי, 
יְיָ לִי וְלֹא אִירָא.

Adon Olam

Verse 1

This is my siddur whose pages overflow

With the words of my ancestors that I will come to know

This is my siddur and that of my people,

The prayers of my heart, the meditations of my soul

 

Chorus

I will cherish it and make it my own

For the righteous light is—sown

Or zarua la’tzadik, ulyishrei lev simcha     

ahhh—ahhh-ahhh

 

Verse 2

I stand before my family, community and God

Open up my heart and sing a brand new song

Looking toward the future, anchored in the past

I will live my values until I breathe my last

 

Chorus

I will cherish it and make it my own

For the righteous light is--- sown

Or zarua la’tzadik, ulyishrei lev simcha    

ahh-ahh-ahh       ahh-ahh-ahh

 

Ahh-ahh—amen.

Sh’ma Yisrael Adonai Eloheinu Adonai, Adonai Echad

Baruch Sheim K’vod, Sheim K’vod, Malchuto 

L’olam, L’oam Va-ed.

 

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,

with all your soul, and with all your might.
And all these words which I command you on this day

shall be in your heart, shall be in your heart.

 

And you shall teach them diligently unto your children.

And you shall speak of them when you’re sitting in your house
When you walk by the way, and when you’re lying down,

and when you’re rising up, and when you’re rising up.

 

And you shall bind them for a sign upon your hand.

And they shall be for frontlets between your eyes.
And you shall write them on the door posts of your house, and upon your gates, and upon your gates.

 

That you may remember and do all of My commandments
And be holy unto your God, unto your God, unto your God.
 

Sh'ma
