Music by Linda Hirschhorn © 1989

Lyrics: Friday night zmirot

יוֹם שַׁבָּתֹן אֵין לִשׁכֹּחַ
זִכְרוֹ כְּרֵיחַ הַנִחֹחַ
יֹנָה מָצְאָה בוֹ מַנוֹחַ
וְשָׁם יָנוּֽחוּ יְגִיעֵי כֹּחַ

Yom shabton ’in lishkoakh.
Zichro kerakh hanikhoakh.
Yonh mts’h vo mnoakh
veshm ynukhu yegi‘i koakh.

[A day of Sabbath rest.
As hard to forget as sweet scent.
The dove finds comfort
and there the weary rest.]
