V'Shamru / Nigun Yinafash - Rabbi Deborah Sacks Mintz (video)

A song for Shabbat - V’shamru ושמרו
We enter this precious 25 hours of rejuvenation with the recognition that pause in the act of doing - rest from the bustle of the work of daily life - is not just a gift, but a brit - a covenant; recharging ourselves as sacred responsibility.
Prepare to enter this space of sacred rejuvination with this nigun, from R. Deborah Sacks Mintz's album Yetzira - available everywhere you get your music.

וְשָׁמְר֥וּ בְנֵֽי־יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל אֶת־הַשַּׁבָּ֑ת
לַעֲשׂ֧וֹת אֶת־הַשַּׁבָּ֛ת לְדֹרֹתָ֖ם בְּרִ֥ית עוֹלָֽם
בֵּינִ֗י וּבֵין֙ בְּנֵ֣י יִשְׂרָאֵ֔ל א֥וֹת הִ֖וא לְעֹלָ֑ם
כִּי־שֵׁ֣שֶׁת יָמִ֗ים עָשָׂ֤ה ה אֶת־הַשָּׁמַ֣יִם וְאֶת־הָאָ֔רֶץ
וּבַיּוֹם֙ הַשְּׁבִיעִ֔י שָׁבַ֖ת וַיִּנָּפַֽשׁ׃
B'nai Yisrael shall keep Shabbat,
observing Shabbat throughout the ages as a covenant for all time.
It is a sign for all time between Me and B'nai Yisrael.
For in six days God made heaven and earth,
and on the seventh day God ceased from work and rested.
