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.
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.
The Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson
