about

Musical interpretations of this piyut (liturgical poem) abound. This Yemenite melody enabled me to hear the text in a way I had not before — as poetry. I learned this version at the inaugural Piyut North America conference. Later, Joel and I were inspired to compose the companion tune.

lyrics

(translation):

...In the hand of the One I place my soul
when I sleep and when I wake
As my spirit dwells in my body,
You are with me — I will not be afraid.
