description: This composition is based on a paraliturgical domestic Sabbath hymn, the melody of which is attributed to the Hassidic Rabbi Nahman of Bratslav (1772-1811), and the lyrics of which are attributed to the 16th century Kabbalistic Rabbi Isaac Luria. The goal of this hymn was to bring the human soul into intimate contact with the Divine.
