This song by Rabbi David Shneyer is from his album “Psalm Songs from Rock Creek,” a title which evokes both Psalms and flowing water. This lively melody reminds me of a rapid, rushing brook. The lyrics, from the Jewish liturgy, ask God to answer our prayers and to “Do it for the sake of your Name…your power…your holiness…your Torah.”
