A Shelter of Peace: Lyrics

HINEI MAH TOV

Hinei mah tov u manayim (2x)
Shevet achim gam yachad

How beautiful it is to be here
Feeling like we belong
Arm in arm just like sisters and brothers
Joined together in song

Hinei mah tov u-manayim (2x)
Shevet achim gam yachad

Who is like you Lord among the mighty? Who is like you glorious in

SHEHECHAYANU

(Commissioned by members of Temple Solel in honor of John and Nancy Linder’s 25th Anniversary)

At this special moment in our lives
We recognize how far we’ve come
We’ve filled the ordinary days
With so many things we’ve seen and done

Our hearts are filled with gratitude
Our sense of purpose is renewed
And words of blessing roll off of our tongues

Shehechayanu, v’kiymanu, v’higyanu
Lazman hazeh

Through challenges we’ve overcome
Our many dreams have merged as one
This life we have created
Is so precious and appreciated

We thank you God for blessing us
Sustaining us when times were tough
Allowing us to reach this sacred day

Shehechayanu, v’kiymanu, v’higyanu
Lazman hazeh

We find strength in one another
In the best times or in the worst
We look upon each day together
As though it was our first

Shehechayanu, v’kiymanu, v’higyanu
Lazman hazeh

CALLING ALL ANGELS/SHALOM ALEICHEM

Shalom aleichem malchei hashareit malchei eilyon mi melech malchei hamlachim ha kadosh baruch hu

I need a sign to let me know you’re here
All of these lines are being crossed over the atmosphere

I need to know that things are gonna look up

Cause I feel us drowning in a sea spilled from a cup

When there is no place safe and no safe place to put my head

When you can feel the world shake from the words that I said

And I’m calling all angels

And I’m calling all you angels

And I won’t give up if you don’t give up

I won’t give up if you don’t give up

I won’t give up if you don’t give up

I won’t give up if you don’t give up

I need a sign to let me know you’re here

Cause my tv set just keeps it all from being clear

I want a reason for the way things have to be

I need a hand to help build up some kind of hope inside of me

And I’m calling all angels

And I’m calling all you angels

When children have to wonder if their parents are still here

And people have to sleep outside ‘cause their homes have disappeared

The only hope we have tonight is to pray to God with all our might

And to cling to one another as the angels of the world unite

Shalom aleichem malchei hashareit malchei eilyon mi melech malchei hamlachim ha kadosh baruch hu

And I’m calling all angels

And I’m calling all you angels

And I’m calling all angels

(I won’t give up if you don’t give up)

And I’m calling all you angels

(I won’t give up if you don’t give up)

Calling all you angels
(I won’t give up if you don’t give up)

Calling all you angels

(I won’t give up if you don’t give up)

Calling all you angels

Shalom aleichem malchei hashareit malchei eilyon mi melech malchei hamlachim ha kadosh baruch hu

HALLELUYAH

I’ve heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do you?

It goes like this… the fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah.

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you

She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah.

There was a time you let me know
What’s really going on below,
Ah but now you never show it to me, do you?

Yeah but I remember, yeah when I moved in you,
And the holy dove, she was moving too,
Yes every single breath that we drew was Hallelujah.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah.

I did my best, it wasn’t much.
I couldn’t feel, so I learned to touch.
I’ve told the truth, I didn’t come to fool you.

Yeah even tough it all went wrong
I’ll stand right here before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my lips but Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah.
