SABBATH PEACE

Standard

SABBATH PEACE

Mother lights the Sabbath candles
and all the children stand around her
they cast a glance to the candlesticks
full of light and warmth and love

Mother gives a blessing ‘Shabbat Shalom’
and mother prays ‘Shabbat Shalom’
Mother wishes ‘Shabbat Shalom’
to all her family

Mother lights the Sabbath candles
she closes and covers her eyes
and all the children slowly, slowly
whisper a prayer in their hearts

Mother lights the Sabbath candles
and the sun is already turned towards the sea
dusk will fall from above
but light will remain in our homes forever.
