Lev Tahor

Sometimes Hashem blesses us with a chance to touch a moment of spirituality and purity. King David asked that that pure heart be created within him, and that spirit be renewed within him. “Don’t send me away from You, and do not take away Your holy spirit from me.” (Tehillim/Psalms 51)

    The lyrics match the melody perfectly.
    The song is pure heart -just beautiful.

    Thank you 🙂

    Ari, beautiful – just beautiful. Dovid HaMelech should be very pleased with this 🙂

    Also, please put into Hebrew the last words you are singing.

    יב לֵב טָהוֹר, בְּרָא-לִי אֱלֹהִים; וְרוּחַ נָכוֹן, חַדֵּשׁ בְּקִרְבִּי. 12 Create me a clean heart, O God; and renew a stedfast spirit within me.

    יג אַל-תַּשְׁלִיכֵנִי מִלְּפָנֶיךָ; וְרוּחַ קָדְשְׁךָ, אַל-תִּקַּח מִמֶּנִּי. 13 Cast me not away from Thy presence; and take not Thy holy spirit from me.

    I hear וְרוּחַ , but I can't follow after that – please type

    Also, please add the feature to feature yours posts on facebook, etc. I so often put you on my facebook wall. Please do this soon.

    Excellent !!!

    Just read Tehellim 51 and the words give your beautiful song even greater depth and meaning.

    As we pour our hearts out in the manner of David ha Melech, may we all desire and strive to have a "clean heart…. broken and contrite."

    Todah Rabbah !!!!

    Not a bad idea.

    As usual very beautiful. Thank you. Do you ever plan on making a CD of Psalms sung in Hebrew/English? I think it would be hugely popular because you put so much feeling into it. Thanks again.
