Melody of Four Stanzas
Rabbi Schneur Zalman’s Niggun
Tzamah Lechah Nafshi
This Chabad classic expresses the profound cry of the soul in exile striving to unite with the Infinite. It ends with the wish that this intense yearning not be lost even when G-d's goodness and glory will be revealed to all.

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.
