In the flickering light, You beckon me.
In the candles’ glow, I reach for You.
In the busyness of the week, I often neglect You.
I forget You.
Yet, You are eternally here with me.
I return to You once again at the week’s end:
I sing Your praises,
I declare Your Oneness,
I welcome the Bride of ShabbatShabbat is the Sabbath day, the Day of Rest, and is observed from Friday night through Saturday night. Is set aside from the rest of the week both in honor of the fact that God rested on the seventh day after creating the world. On Shabbat, many Jews observe prohibitions from various activities designated as work. Shabbat is traditionally observed with festive meals, wine, challah, prayers, the reading and studying of Torah, conjugal relations, family time, and time with friends..
I speak to You in whispers.
I stare into the candles’ growing flames.
In that flickering light, You beckon me.
In the glowing light, I reach for You
Together we enter the Sanctuary of Shabbat.
