Debbie Friedman – Shelter Of Peace (hashkiveinu) lyrics

Close your eyes and go to sleep,
There's nothing you must fear my precious ones.
You will be so safe and so
Protected in the shelter of my love.
And when you meet the light of day,
You'll never have to fear what you will see.
You are the hope of all that can be.
Feel the peace around you,
When you awaken you will come to know
That innocence and wonder
Are veiled by the guns and bombs and wars.
But you must never run away,
The changes that will come will only be
The fruit of your hands, the breath of your being.
And when you are on your way
Enveloped in the shelter of my wings
Feel your hear dancing, fell your heart sing.
And with every breat you take
Your faith renewed will ever come to be
A shelter of love, a shelter of peace.
So close your eyes and go to sleep;
Everywhere you turn you know it's real.
Touch a soul, the world changes,
And you know there's nothing more to fear.
With every challenge feel your strength;
Let your goodness shine that it may be
A shelter of courage, a shelter of light and dreams,
A shelter of love, a shelter of peace.
