Author: Rabbi Nachman of Bratzlav Hymnal: Worship in Song #153 (1996) Meter: 188.8.131.52 Hymnal Title: Worship in Song Lyrics: 1 O hear, my people, hear me well:
"I have no need for sacrifice;
but mercy, loving kindness shall
alone for life and good suffice."
2 Then source of peace, lead us to peace,
a place profound, and wholly true.
And lead us to a mastery
o'er drives in us that war pursue.
3 May deeds we do inscribe our names
as blessings in the Book of Life.
O source of peace, lead us to heal.
O source of peace, lead us from strife.
