The Omer Song

Come on now, count the Omer
You can count the Omer
Come on now, count the Omer
1, 2, 3, 4 Count with me!           

During the time the Temple stood            
Folks would come on by
Offering a barley sheaf as a way to sanctify
Life which should be rich and full
And never, never rote…
Come on, let’s count the days between
Passover and Shavuot.

Now, now, now (Chorus)           

The 2nd night of Passover is when you want to start
Do it with intention and with an open heart.
Count those days as they pass, a blessing every one
Counting’s not a drudgery, it’s really lots of fun…

Now, now, now (Chorus)

Think of us as having just left Egypt (a narrow place)
Liberation’s precious, not a gift to waste
Think about the ways in which we can do our share
The world still needs all of us to work on its repair…

Now, now, now (Chorus)

When the sun goes down at night, that’s when you want to say
The special prayer for counting, then announce that special day
The tide will ebb, the tide will flow, nothing new under the sun
49 days will come and go, and you’ll notice every one! 

Now, now, now (Chorus)
