Sabbath Music - Oseh Shalom Bimromav

These words are a part of our liturgy, which we repeat every Friday evening in our synagogue.  This commandment's reference is found in Exodus 20:8-11 and 30:13.

He really is serious about keeping His Sabbath(s) and has never changed it.  I pray you will listen to His voice and take the day as His gift.  Rest.  Be still.  Refresh.  Renew.  Enjoy Shabbat Shalom -- the sweet peace that comes from obedience to His command.

Here's a song we sing on Shabbat: Oseh Shalom Bimromav.  The song is in Hebrew, with English lyrics and is all about Adonai's peace.  This song begins slowly and builds up the pace, so put on your dancing shoes, Gail-Friends.  Worship Him with dancing.  Yes, it's in the Bible.  Psalm 149 makes it clear, not only to dance but to use a tambourine and lyre.

 Sing to Adonai a new song,
his praise in the assembly of the faithful.
Let Isra’el rejoice in their maker,
let Tziyon’s children take joy in their king.
Let them praise his name with dancing,
make melody to him with tambourine and lyre

So grab your dancing shoes and your tambourine, and make melody to Him with JOY!

Good Shabbos, and blessings of shalom to you all, dear Gail-Friends.
