Birchot Ha-Shachar



Blessed are you Yah, source of lifecreator of light and remover of darkness
spreading lands and opening roads

Blessed are you Yah, source of life
former of human beings in wisdom creating within them openings and vessels,
and blowing the wind of God to play them.

Blessed are you Yah, source of life,
who made me in your image
who made me free,
who made me me.

Blessed are you Yah, my mother, mother of all living,
who spreads her wings upon me –
Be a shelter and a tent unto me,
give strength to the weary.
