אָבִינוּ מַלְכֵּנוּ; “Our Father, Our King
I know that this is usually sung at Rosh Hashanah [Jewish New Year ]and Yom Kippur, [Day of Atonement ] but after the last few months/years, I felt I wanted something that touched my soul, to remember the horrors of the Holocaust and to give hope for all of us who face such an uncertain future; be they/you or even I, Jewish, None Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Pagan, of faith and those who hold no faith.
Just sit and listen, and if you can, with your eyes closed – It is a truly haunting prayer/song.
Hear our prayer
We have sinned before Thee
Have compassion upon us and upon our children
Help us bring an end to pestilence, war, and famine
Cause all hate and oppression to vanish from the earth
Inscribe us for blessing in the Book Of Life
Let the new year be a good year for us
Avinu malkeinu sh’ma kolenu
Avinu malkeinu chatanu l’faneycha
Avinu malkeinu alkenu chamol aleynu
V’al olaleynu v’tapenu
Kaleh dever v’cherev v’raav mealeynu
Avinu malkeinu kalehchol tsar
Kotvenu b’sefer chayim tovim
Avinu malkeinu chadesh aleynu
Chadesh a leynu shanah tovah
Chadesh a leynu
January 27th – Holocaust Memorial Day The 27 January marks the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi death camp.
**Taken from my other blog Tales from The Undergardener’s Lodge but I wanted to share it again because the prayer is so soul-lifting.
