B'RUCHOT HABAOT
Music and lyrics by Debbie Friedman

B'ru-chot ha-ba-ot ta-chat kan-fei ha-Sh'chi-na
B'ru-chim ha-ba-im ta-chat kan-fei ha-Sh'chi-na
May you be blessed beneath the wings of Sh 'china
Be blessed with love, be blessed with peace.

THE TIME IS NOW
Music by Debbie Friedman
Lyrics by Debbie Friedman & Tamora Ruth Cohen

The time is now.
We've gathered 'round.
So bring all your gifts,
And bring all your burdens with you.

No need to hide.
Arms open wide.
We gather as one.
To make a ma-kom ka-dosh.

We come to tell.
We come to hear.
We come to teach, to learn.
We come to grow.
And so we say.

The time is now.
Sing to the One.
God's Presence is here,
Sh'china. You will dwell among us.

We'll make this space
A holy place,
So separate, so whole.
Rejoice every soul
Who enters here.

LIGHT THESE LIGHTS
(Oh Hear My Prayer)
Music and lyrics by Debbie Friedman

Oh hear my prayer
I sing to You.
Be gracious to the ones I love,
And bless them with goodness, and mercy and peace.
Oh hear my prayer to You.

Let us light these lights
And see the way to You,
And let us say: Amen.

MI SHEBEIRACH
Music by Debbie Friedman
Lyrics by Debbie Friedman and Drorah Setel

Mi she-bei-rach a-vo-tei-nu
M'kor ha-bra-cha l'i-mo-tei-nu.
May the source of strength
Who blessed the ones before us,

Help us find the courage
To make our lives a blessing,
And let us say: Amen.

Mi she-bei-rach i-mo-tei-nu
M'kor ha-bra-cha l'a-vo-tei-nu,
Bless those in need of healing
With r'fu-a sh'lei-ma,

The renewal of body.
The renewal of spirit.
And let us say: Amen.
