Another instance of a song written to part of a Psalm. It's beautiful to recite the first three verses to ourselves and then 'break out' into this song just as verse 4 exhorts us to. As the refrain fades away, we return inward to ourselves to recite the Psalm's remaining verses. Thus the song rises up from within the Psalm itself.

Composed on Netzer summer camp in South Africa in 2004 or maybe 2005, by Rina Epstein (from Noar Telem in Israel and was a Netzer Shlicha in South Africa) and Guy Zack (who was Shnat 2004).

Learned from RSY-Netzer. Arrangement as taught by Assael Romanelli while on shlichut to Noam - it works well in a large group. Contact us if you want an explanation of how to put it together!
