about

This 16th century poem was originally written by Rabbi Shlomo HaLevi Alkabetz. DeVora arranged contemporary music to this beautiful song that is sung joyously to greet the Shabbat.

Come my beloved to welcome the bride
The presence of Shabbat we receive!

Observe and remember in one divine utterance
We heard from the One and Only God
The Lord is One and His name One
For renown, for splendor, and for praise

Come, my beloved ...

Shake off the dust, arise!
Dress in garments of glory, my people
Through the son of Jesse, the Bethlehemite
Redemption draws near to my soul

Come, my beloved ...

Wake up, wake up!
For your light has come
Awaken, awaken, sing a song
For the glory of the Lord is revealed to you

Come my beloved ...
