Friday evening through the next day til dusk,
The Sabbath comes for Jews…
A time of peace and family
Your kippah (Kippot) to use.
Synagogue time for readings and prayers,
The Cantor sings out loud…
The glories of your Most High God–
God’s people can be proud.
For God, despite Gentile threats
His people has not forsaken…
Someday He will come to rescue
And earth’s foundations be shaken.
