Overnight music video

There was actually something else I wanted to put on tonight, which is particularly appropriate for a newborn, but I was only able to find the music and not the words, and now I cannot even find that.

So here's Ana b'Koach.

Let's go to the videotape. An explanation follows.

About Ana B'Ko'ach

The Ana B'Ko'ach prayer is mainly known to be recited on Friday evening during the Kabbalat (welcoming) Shabbbat Service as well as Yom Kippur. The Ana B'Ko'ach is concluded with a quiet "Baruch Shem K'vod Malchutoh L'Olam Va'ed" - (Blessed is the Name of the Glory of His Kingship, forever and ever.)


Acronym for "B'Siyata D'shmayah" (בסיעתא דשמיא), Arameic for With Help Of Heaven
