Hear Oh L-rd

The Festival of Lights, Chanukah has arrived a hopeful time of praise each year revived. The Menorah lit, each home becomes a church. Blessed are You, L-rd our G-d, King of the universe. Our sister Miriam lights the shamash taper first a maiden fair and scholarly her prayers rehearsed to bring together all that's beautiful, diverse. Blessed are You, L-rd our G-d, King of the universe. Eight nights we praise the L-rd for gifting us with Light and pass around small things which bring delight. We rejoice. In brotherhood we are immersed. Blessed are You, L-rd our G-d, King of the universe. May G-d in his greatness light all your days May family, friends, and foes mend their ways for all have needs, let kindness tame their thirsts Blessed are You, L-rd our G-d, King of the universe. *Bo-ruch A-toh Ado-noi E-lo-hei-nu Me-lech Ho-olom A-sher Ki-de-sho-nu Be-mitz-vo-sov Ve-tzi-vo-nu Le-had-lik Ner Shel Cha-nu-kah. * Blessed are You, L-rd our G-d, King of the universe, who has sanctified us by His commandments, and has commanded us to kindle the lights of Chanukah.
