From sundown to sundown~ Shabbat at her best
A time to read Torah, eat challah and rest.
A time to remember, a time to 'do'
what Abba in Heaven commanded us to.
Celebration and ceremony, a time of great joy
A blessing of Peace for each girl and boy.
But when the three stars show their faces in the sky,
I light the Havdalah, and then say goodbye.
Goodbye to our friend, our precious Delight,
Sabbath, my love, goodnight, goodnight.
Sunday I scramble out of my bed and get ready and rush
to my work, which I dread.
But wait! I remember and praise HaShem for the warmth of Shabbat
that washes over my heart.
The First Day, the Second, the Third Day too.
I remember the joy of being a Jew.
The time spent with family, entering G-d's Rest.
The Torah, the challah~ Shabbat at her best.
The Fourth Day, the Fifth, the Sixth Day too~ Baruch HaShem.
I look forward to Sabbath Blessing again!
All work is easier, all pain is small
when I look to Shabbat and hear her call:
"Come to me all of you who are tired,
And you will find Rest for you Soul."
Shabbat is the Sun~ and I am the moon
Reflecting her glory til she returns soon.
Each week, we read Torah, eat challah and Rest
from sundown to sundown
Shabbat at her best.
