Meditation Before an Accompaniment
Be with me today and redeem [ ] from the cold, brutal nightmare that envelopes him/her. Deliver them that are drawn unto death; and those that are ready to be slain will you forbear to rescue? (Proverbs 24:11)
Av Harachaman, Source of Compassion!
Keep me strong and resolute to do good;
Keep me sensitive to hear another’s silent cry; “Hannah was praying in her heart, silently. Her lips moved, but no sound was heard.” (I Sam. 1:10)
Keep me alert so that I will always hear your timeless charge: If there be among you a needy man, one of your brothers, within any of your gates, in thy land which the LORD your God gives you, you shalt not harden your heart. (Deut. 15:7)
We will sanctify Your name in the world, as it is sanctified above.
