about

Behind the Song:

What does “and you shall love your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength” truly mean? The V’ahavta prayer talks about how we remind ourselves to love God through ritual objects like the mezuzzah or t’filin. I believe that in order to show our love for God, we must love everyone and everything around us, and make that love the foundation of all of our actions.

lyrics

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
