Songs for Shabbat

Mozis Niggun by Joey Weisenberg

L'cha Dodi arranged by Josh Warshawsky​​
לְכָה דוֹדִי לִקְרַאת כַּלָּה. פְּנֵי שַׁבָּת נְקַבְּלָה 
Lecha dodi likrat kala, p’nei Shabbat n’kabelah! 

בּֽוֹאִי בְשָׁלוֹם עֲטֶרֶת בַּעְלָהּ. גַּם בְּשִׂמְחָה וּבְצָהֳלָה. 
תּוֹךְ אֱמוּנֵי עַם סְגֻּלָּה. בּֽוֹאִי כַלָּה, בּֽוֹאִי כַלָּה
Bo’i v’shalom, ateret ba’ala, 
Gam b’simcha uv’ tzhala. 
Toch emunei am segula; Bo’i chala, bo’i chala. 
 
Come, my friend, to meet the bride; let us welcome the Sabbath. 
 

Psalm 92 - Tzadik Katamar by Lewandowski 

Psalm 93 - Mikolot Mayim Rabim 

 Welcoming Ritual: Psalm 126 music by Joey Weisenberg
שׁוּבָ֣ה יְ֭הוָה אֶת שְׁבִיתֵ֑נוּ כַּאֲפִיקִ֥ים בַּנֶּֽגֶב׃ 
Shuva Ado-nai et shiviteinu ka-afikeem banegev.
Restore our fortunes, Infinite One, like watercourses in the Negeb.

הַזֹּרְעִ֥ים בְּדִמְעָ֗ה בְּרִנָּ֥ה יִקְצֹֽרוּ׃
Hazorim b'dimah b'rina yiktzoru
They who sow in tears shall reap with songs of joy.

שִׁ֗יר הַֽמַּ֫עֲל֥וֹת בְּשׁ֣וּב יְ֭הוָה אֶת־שִׁיבַ֣ת צִיּ֑וֹן הָ֝יִ֗ינוּ כְּחֹלְמִֽים׃ 
Shir hama'alot b'shuv Ado-nai et shivat Tzion hayinu k'chol'mim 
A song of ascents. When the LORD restores the fortunes of Zion —we see it as in a dream—

אָ֤ז יִמָּלֵ֪א שְׂח֡וֹק פִּינוּ֮ וּלְשׁוֹנֵ֪נוּ רִ֫נָּ֥ה
Az yimale s'hok pinu ul'shonenu rinah 
our mouths shall be filled with laughter, our tongues, with songs of joy.

Songs for the Month of Elul

Achat Shaalti by Israel Katz
Achat sha-alti mei-eit Adonai, otah avakkeish
shivti b'veit Adonai, kol y'mei hayyai
la-chazot b'no-am Adonai u-l'vakkeir b'heikhalo.

One thing I ask of Adonai - this I seek:
to dwell in the House of G-d all the days of my life,
to behold G-d's beauty and visit in G-d's sanctuary. 

Adonai Ori by Cantor Dara Rosenblatt 
Adonai Ori v'yish'i me'me'ira

The Divine is my light and my help. Who is it that I fear?The Divine is the strength of my life.
Who is it that I dread?

L’eit tachin matbeach mitzar hamnabeach
Az egmor b’shir mizmor chanukat hamizbeach

מָעוֹז צוּר יְשׁוּעָתִי לְךָ נָאֶה לְשַׁבֵּחַ
תִּכּוֹן בֵּית תְּפִלָּתִי וְשָׁם תּוֹדָה נְזַבֵּחַ.

לְעֵת תָּכִין מַטְבֵּחַ מִצָּר הַמְנַבֵּחַ.
אָז אֶגְמוֹר בְּשִׁיר מִזְמור חֲנֻכַּת הַמִּזְבֵּחַ.

Rock of Ages let our song, Praise thy saving power;
Thou amidst the raging foes, Wast our sheltering tower.
Furiously they assailed us, But Thine arm availed us
And Thy word broke their sword, When our own strength failed us.
