This soulful melody is divided into three parts. The first, wordless, elevates the singers to a deeply spiritual mood. The second expresses yearning for the Divine, while the third is a declaration of faith in the help of our Father and King.

Musical Notes


One of the ten melodies composed by the Alter Rebbe. The words are from a prayer recited on Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and every fast day; a shorter form of the prayer is read on the weekdays on which Supplications (Tachanun) are said. The soulful melody, matching the earnestness of the text, is divided into three parts. The first, wordless, elevates the singers to a deeply spiritual mood. The second expresses yearning for the Divine, while the third is a declaration of faith in the help of our Father and King.
