Shavuot Song List

Shavuot Song List

Shavuot song list is the second post about festival music. The music of Shavuot is diverse.  The major theme of Shavuot is the giving of the Torah to Moses. Therefore, many of the songs are singing, chanting or rapping about this very topic.

This post has three YouTube Video Lists. The first is a traditional list of acceptable songs. Secondly, is Beth Shalom Israel (BSI) my shul’s playlist. The third list is an Additional Song List.

Here I wanted to create a video list of songs. The traditional song list was taken from Philip Goodman’s book, “The Shavuot Anthology” published by JPS. Many of these songs are sung by professional Cantors and are paid only links. I did not include those links. The unlinked songs are a record of recognized Shavuot songs.

Arise – By: Karen Davis

Arise Lyrics - By: Karen Davis
Oh my dove in the cleft of the rock
In the secret place
Let me hear your voice
Let me see your face
For your face is lovely
And your voice is sweet
The voice of my beloveit
Behold He comes
The fairest of ten thousand
His banner over me His love
I am my beloveits He is mine
You have ravished my heart my sister my spouse
You have ravished my heart with one look of your eyes
You are all fair my love there’s no spot in you
A garden enclosed my sister my spouse
A spring shut up a fountain sealed
A well of living waters
Oh you who were afflicted
Tossed with tempest and uncomforted
Behold I will lay your stones with colorful gems
And lay your foundation with sapphires
I’ll make your pinnacles of rubies
Your gates of crystals
And all your walls of precious stones
I will give you beauty for ashes
And the oil of joy for mourning
I will cloth you with garments of salvation
And garments of praise
And cover you with a robe of righteousness
Look with me from the tops of the mountains
Arise my love my fair one
Arise my love And come away
Come away with me
Come away with me
Come away with me
My belovedit
Your maker is your husband
The Lord of Host is His name
Although you were forsaken
You’ll not be ashamed
You shall run and not grow weary
You shall walk and not faint
For those that wait upon the LORD(YHVH)
Shall renew their strength
So arise
Arise on egles wings
Arise
Arise my love and sing
So arise
Arise on egles wings
Arise
Arise my love and sing
I will carry you

Arise My Love – By: Johnathan Settel

Arise My Love Lyrics - by Johnathan Settel
Arise my love, Arise my love
I’ve come to take my bride
How beautiful you are my love
Your eyes shine with love behind your veil
Arise my love, Arise my love
Meet me in the sky
How happy we will be my love
Drink deeply and lose yourself in me
Arise my love, Your King has come
To take his spotless bride
Arise to your eternal home
Arise my fair one and come with me

Arise my love, Arise my love,
Arise, Arise, Arise

Wherever you go, there I will go
Wherever you live, it’s there, that I shall live
