[The Sinaite’s’ musical liturgy 

borrows music from Christian hymnody

but our lyrics revision reflect our Sinaite creed.  

Imitation is the best compliment;  

so we salute the composers  of Christian hymns;   

no doubt they were inspired by the God

they love and serve, 

just as we are inspired by the God

we have chosen to follow,

to serve and to worship:

His Name is YHWH.  —Admin1

KINDLE THE SABBATH LIGHTS

 

Erev Shabbat by Laura Bolter

Erev Shabbat by Laura Bolter

Sing hallelu YAHUWAH LORD;   sing hallelu YAHUWAH LORD;

Sing hallelu YAH, sing hallelu YAH, sing hallelu YAHUWAH LORD!

 

[Original Tune:  Bread of the World, Revised Lyrics]

 

LIGHT of the world,  dispel the darkness

that makes men blind who see You not,

There’s unbelief, there’s skepticism,

‘There is no God’, or so they say.

Your LIGHT shines bright to all believers

who see You, listen to Your Voice,

You speak Your Word through all the ages,

from Sinai to our seeking hearts.

 

 

[Original Tune:  All Glory, Praise and Honor, Revised Lyrics]

 

1.  All glory, praise and honor, 

Yahuwah God our King!

To Whom our hymns of worship 

with loud hosannas sing!

Thou art the God of Israel,

of all humanity,

Who learn Thy guidelines in Thy Word, 

believe and worship Thee.

 

 

2.  The company of angels 

keep praising Thee no end;

We join their mighty chorus, 

our love to Thee we send!

Thy chosen people Israel, 

Thy firstborn son Thou led

As fire by night and cloud by day, 

with manna they were fed.

 

3.  To Thee they brought their offerings, 

they sang their hymns of praise.

Like them we sing our praises, 

our heartfelt thanks we raise.

Thou art the Source of all our joy, 

the source of our delight.

We thank Thee for Thy Sabbath rest, 

the day when we’re most blest!

Psalm 119:  1-16

 

1 Blessed are those whose way is blameless,

who walk in the law of the Lord!

2  Blessed are those who keep his testimonies,

who seek him with their whole heart,

3  who also do no wrong, but walk in his ways!

4  You have commanded your precepts to be kept diligently.

5  Oh that my ways may be steadfast in keeping your statutes!

6 Then I shall not be put to shame,

having my eyes fixed on all your commandments.

7  I will praise you with an upright heart,

when I learn your righteous rules.

8  I will keep your statutes;do not utterly forsake me!

9  How can a young man keep his way pure?

By guarding it according to your word.

10  With my whole heart I seek you;

let me not wander from your commandments!

11  I have stored up your word in my heart,

that I might not sin against you.

12  Blessed are you, O Lord;

teach me your statutes!

13  With my lips I declare

all the rules of your mouth.

14  In the way of your testimonies I delight

as much as in all riches.

15  I will meditate on your precepts

and fix my eyes on your ways.

16  I will delight in your statutes;

I will not forget your word.

[Original Tune:  Give Thanks/Revised Lyrics]

 

Give thanks for this Sabbath day,

Give thanks for this time, we pray,

Give thanks because He’s given

all we need, day to day,

Give thanks for our family,

For spouse, for our children dear,

For special friends we’ve chosen,  

All are gifts from His Heart,

And so let us celebrate our joys,

Let us celebrate our life,

As we sip our wine, partake of this bread,

All these are sweet blessings from our God, 

What an awesome loving God, 

and Yahuwah is His Name,

Praise His Name,

Give Him thanks,

Heed His Word,

Live His Life.

 

PRAYER

Lord of Life, God of Generations,

You have blessed us with beloved family–

[Name them] parents, siblings,

spouse, children, extended kin,

and special people.

As we partake of this bread and drink this wine,

symbols of Your provisions and the joy we derive

in celebrating the Sabbath,

We remember them all

and thank You for intertwining our lives—

to LIFE, L’Chaim, Mabuhay!

[Original Tune:  Gracious Spirit, fill thou me/revised lyrics]

1.  Lord Yahuwah, lead the way, 

through each moment, each new day.

Help me navigate my way, as I study, learn, and pray,

Thank You for Your Torah life, may I live my life Your way.

 

2.  Truthful prophets of my God, how can I as truthful be?

And with wisdom speak as clear, may my Torah mind appear,

Followed with good deeds to all, may Thy Truth in me not fall.

 

3.  Torah Words inspire my soul,  make my actions bare to all.

That my life might speak as loud as the words that make me proud,

Words about Your mighty deeds, may I sow Life-giving seeds.

 

4.  God invisible to me,  I know You though I can’t see.

Your Creation testifies, Israel still verifies,

Torah is Your legacy, meant for all humanity.
