Picture of Sheet music  for soprano, mezzo-soprano and cello by Julian Dawes. A setting of the first section of the central prayer in Judaism

The Sh'ma is the central prayer in Judaism, a setting a text from the bokk of Deuteronomy Chapter 6, Verses 4-9. The prayer is an affirmation of Judaism and a declaration of faith in one God.

This is a concert rather than a liturgical setting and is for Soprano/Tenor, Mezzo Soprano/Baritone and Cello.

Sh'ma Yisrael Adonai Elohaynu Adonai Echad.
Hear, Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lord is One.

Barukh Shem k'vod malkhuto l'olam va-ed
Blessed be the Name of His glorious kingdom for ever and ever

V-ahavta et Adonai Elohecha b-chol l'vavcha u-v-chol naf'sh'cha u-v-chol m'odecha.
And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.

V-hayu ha-d'varim ha-ayleh asher anochi m'tzav'cha ha-yom al l'vavecha.
And these words that I command you today shall be in your heart.

V-shinantam l-vanecha, v-dibarta bam
b-shivt'cha b-vaytecha, u-v-lecht'cha ba-derech, u-v-shachb'cha u-v-kumecha.

And you shall teach them diligently to your children, and you shall speak of them
when you sit at home, and when you walk along the way, and when you lie down and when you rise up.

U-k'shartam l'ot al yadecha, v-hayu l-totafot bayn aynecha.
And you shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be for frontlets between your eyes.
