עוֹלָם חֶסֶד

Composed of Sacred Phrases by Rabbi Pamela Frydman

Sung to the tune of Olam Hesed Yibaneh by Rabbi Menachem Creditor

עוֹלָם חֶסֶד יִבָּנֶה

הַמֵאִיר לְעוֹלָם כּוּלוֹ בִּכְבוֹדוֹ

אַל תִּפְרושׁ מִן הַצִיבוּר

וְאָהַבְתָּ לְרֵעֲךָ כָּמוֹךָ


    (x4)  לְתַקֵּן עוֹלָם בְּמַלכוּת-שַׁדַי 


לְמַעַן יֵחָלְצוּן יְדִידֶיךָ

הוֹשִׁיעָה יְמִינְךָ וַעֲנֵנוּ

אֱלהַי! נְשָׁמָה 

שֶׁנָתַתָּ בִּי טְהוֹרָה


     (x4) לְתַקֵּן עוֹלָם בְּמַלכוּת-שַׁדַי 


אוֹר זָרוּעַ לַצַדִיק

וּלְיִשְׁרֵי לֵב שִׂמְחָה

שִׂמְחוּ צַדִּיקִים בַּיְיָ 

וְהוֹדוּ לְזֵכֶר קָדְשׁוֹ


    (x4)  לְתַקֵּן עוֹלָם בְּמַלכוּת-שַׁדַי

 A World of Kindness


[1] G!d will build a world of kindness;

[2] Enlighten the whole world with His Glory.

[3] Do not stand apart from the community;

[4] Love your neighbor as yourself


[5] To repair the world in the Kingdom of the Divine Mother (X4)


[6] That those whom you love might be rescued; Deliver with

Your right hand and answer us.

[7] My G!d, the soul You have placed in me is pure


[5] To repair the world in the Kingdom of the Divine Mother (X4)


[8] Light is sown for the righteous

And joy for the upright of heart.

The righteous shall rejoice in G!d and

Give praise to the remembrance of G!d’s holiness


[5] To repair the world in the Kingdom of the Divine Mother (X4)

[3] – An exhortation to help those in need. Pirkei Avot 2:5.

New York: Mesorah Heritage Foundation, 1998, page 256.) or Rav, a Babylonian rabbi of the third century C.E. Some scholars believe Alaynu was part of Second Temple rituals. Others say it was introduced later time into Rosh HaShanah liturgy. Alaynu appears to have become part of daily Jewish worship during the middle ages. (Siddur Sim Shalom for Weekdays.
