Track Name: Bless Our Road
Let our steps be light
And our thoughts unburdened
May the stars be bright
And our journeys certain

Let us make new friends
Call no one stranger
Never meet dead ends
And be led away from danger

CHORUS:
Please bless our road
The journeys we have yet to travel on
Please bless our road
And may we learn from where we came from

Let us not forget
To stop and smell the flowers
May we look ahead
But live for every passing hour

Let us stand our ground
For the things that we believe in
May we make a sound
For those silenced and those lost in weeping

CHORUS

Please bless our road

For the times we don’t know where to go
Give us the strength to press forward

CHORUS

Please bless our road

Let our steps be light
Let us make new friends
Let us stand our ground
Let us not forget
Track Name: Sim Shalom
Sim shalom, sim shalom
Tova uvracha, sim shalom
x2

Some days, it seems the hurt will never end
Some days, we wonder what out there is next
It’s not enough to fix, we have to mend
Sim shalom, please bring us peace

Sim shalom, sim shalom
Tova uvracha, sim shalom
x2

Grant us mercy, and the strength to love
Grant us forgiveness for all we have done wrong
We’ll feel your light and kindness shine from up above
Sim shalom, please bring us peace

Sim shalom, sim shalom (please bring us peace)
Tova uvracha, sim shalom
x2
Track Name: V'Ahavta
Let love guide your hands
As they touch the world
Let love guide your lips
As they speak kind words

Let love guide your legs
When you leave your home
Let love guide your ears
When you listen close

For we are all God’s hands
For we are all God’s lips
For we are all God’s legs
And we are all God’s ears
And it’s up to us to love

There are signs in the world
If we choose to see
Such wonder in the world
And in all living things

And with all of our breath
And all of our might
We will set forth
To work for what’s right

For we are all God’s hands
For we are all God’s lips
For we are all God’s legs
And we are all God’s ears
And it’s up to us to love

V’ahavta
V’ahavta
And you shall love
And you shall love
And you shall love

For we are all God’s hands
For we are all God’s lips
For we are all God’s legs
And we are all God’s ears
And it’s up to us to love
Track Name: Dodi Li
Dodi li va’ani lo
Haroeh, haroeh bashoshanim
Haroeh bashoshanim, dodi li

All I am is yours
All I am is yours
All I am, and all I’ll ever be is yours, is yours

Dodi li va’ani lo
Haroeh, haroeh bashoshanim
Haroeh bashoshanim, dodi li

My love is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
The more I have, for both are infinite to me, to me

Dodi li va’ani lo
Haroeh, haroeh bashoshanim
Haroeh bashoshanim, dodi li
Haroeh bashoshanim, dodi li
Track Name: Don't Be Afraid
Kol ha-o-lam ku-lo gesher tzar me-od
The whole world is a narrow bridge
A very, very narrow bridge

V'ha-i-kar, v’ha-i-kar
Lo l'fached, lo l'fached klal
And the main thing to recall is not to be afraid at all
And the main thing to recall is not to be, not to be afraid at all

The world is a very narrow bridge
Don’t be afraid at all
Track Name: Quiet Heart
Holy One, give me a quiet heart

Elohai n’tzor l’shoni meira
Usfatai midabeir mirmah

Holy One, give me a quiet heart

Yihyu l’ratzon imrei fi
V’hegyon libi l’fanecha
Adonai tzuri v’goali

Holy One, give me a quiet heart
Track Name: Ahavat Olam
Ahavat olam beit yisrael
Am’cha ahavta
Ahavat olam, ahavat olam

Thank you for the Torah
Thank you for your love
Thank you for the blessings
You send from up above

Ahavat olam beit yisrael
Am’cha ahavta
Ahavat olam, ahavat olam

You gave us the commandments
To teach us wrong from right
Please be with us always
As we try to live good lives

Ahavat olam beit yisrael
Am’cha ahavta
Ahavat olam, ahavat olam
Track Name: May We
May we always be forgiven
May we search for ways to grow
May we always have compassion
For those we know and those we don't

May we seek a brighter future
Find answers in actions, not in words
May we question what we know
And may we always question status quo

Shana tova
Shana tova
Shana tova u'metukah

May we seek out our reflections
To learn from the mistakes of our past
May we not just light the way for others
But teach them how to light their own path

Shana tova
Shana tova
Shana tova u'metukah

So we pray for opened eyes
And we pray once more for peace
We pray for those in need of healing and of love
We pray to shine in our beliefs

Shana tova
Shana tova
Shana tova u'metukah
