Sweet As Honey

Sweet As honey, sweet as honey, sweet as honey on our tongue (4x)
Süss wie Honig, süss wie Honig, süss wie Honig auf unser Zunge

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה ה’ אֱלהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעולָם אֲשֶׁר קִדְּשָׁנוּ

Baruch atah Adonai, Eloheinu melech ha-olam, asher kid’shanu,
Blessed are You, Adonai our God, Sovereign of the universe, who hallows us
Gepriesen seist Du, Herr, unser Gott, König der Welt, welcher uns heiligt

בְּמִצְותָיו וְצִוָּנוּ לַעֲסוק בְּדִבְרֵי תורָה

b’mitzvotav v’tzi-vanu, la-a-sok b’divrei Torah, la-a-sok b’divrei Torah.
with mitzvot, commanding us to engage with words of Torah.
mit Geboten, und uns gebietet, uns mit Worten der Tora zu befassen.

Sweet As Honey
Words: Traditional prayer
Music: Dan Nichols

BTW: This is how I became aware of this beautiful song (prayer) which I didn’t know before: I had the privilege to celebrate a (Chol Hamoed) Sukkot session with Temple Israel, Cape Town, via Facebook on Friday, 9 October 2020. It was inspiring and a blessing! In the video below Sweet As Honey is sung by Bill R., one of the congregation members:
