From the recording Joan Beckow Legacy Project
Music & words by Joan Beckow
Words based on the opening of the Neilah Service for Yom Kippur
Arranged for violin and cello by Wendy B Stuart
Open unto us, Open unto us.
Oh G-d, Oh G-d.
Open unto us the gates of mercy.
Before the closing of Thy gates,
E’er the day is done, before the day is done.
The day vanishes.
The sun is setting.
Let us enter, enter Thy gates.
