A brisk, joyful melody quickly emerged, and I sang it with my full voice. Singing something so upbeat, in a major key but yet in Hebrew always seems like a little bit of a surprise to me. I ask myself if I can really do that, and then I smile as I go ahead and belt it out!
Baruch atah adonai eloheynu chey ha-olamim oter yisrael betifarah. Blessed are You, the Beautiful, Our God, Life of all the Worlds, who crowns Israel with splendor.
Blessed are You, the Glorious our God, who gives us a big bright, clear blue sky!
