Great Recordings   Lyrics and Translation

Based on the prayer of the legendary sage Rabbi Akiva, this petition addresses God as both our Father and our King. A father shows mercy to his children, and a king strengthens his kingdom through his subjects. God should be merciful to us as a father, and bless us to strengthen His kingdom and perfect the world.
