My soul thirsts for You. My flesh longs for You. In a dry and weary land without water. So may I look for You in the sanctuary to see Your power and Your glory.

Psalms 63:2,3

Musical Notes

One can hear on this recording the voice of the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, of righteous memory, singing this melody at the Chassidic gathering of Tes-Vov Shevat, 5737, the year of his seventy fifth birthday. The chorus of thousands of assembled Chassidim can be heard accompanying the Rebbe.

Composition of this song is attributed to the Alter Rebbe, Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi, founder of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement. The tune, reflecting the meaning of its words, expresses the craving of the soul for its Maker.

Composed or Taught By
The Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson

Wonderful I can't think of a better way to break a musical fast and again enjoy the wonderful gift of music, nor a better way to realize and appreciate the Vis-on of G-d in creating us with the capacity to listen and holistically enjoy music -then to allow my soul to sing from its heart and do what it most wants to do, when it feels most alive, comfortable, and satisfied, that is, worshiping and bonding with HaKadosh Baruch Hu. What wonderful blessings, the combination of, singing from the soul and worshiping HaShem.” I truly enjoy them both. {{{Tzomo Lecho Nafshi...}}} Reply

As I was playing this song, my dog, a puppy cocked his head and turned his head to the music coming from the computer. He even smiled! Love this music. Reply

To think all these years later... the strength and love is still just as strong. Even on my computer, it's as if I am right there. There is no time difference. It's like light is let into your mind and soul. How greatful I am for those who were so brave, and went before us, to teach us. Thank you for letting me step into this beautiful moment of time.
