A beautiful new Yedid Nefesh for your Shabbat table!
Rabbi Benzion Klatzko composed this Yedid Nefesh as the ultimate love song to Hashem. Yedid, most beloved, comes from the words יד יד, “hand in hand” the ultimate expression of connection. The Klatzkos even named their second son Yedidya, which means “most beloved of G-D. ” Of all of the Zmirot composed for Shabbat, Yedid Nefesh has had the Mazal of having the most beautiful tunes composed to its lyrics. Rabbi Klatzko hopes that this new melody will find favor in the eyes of Hasham and His holy nation.

יְדִיד נֶפֶשׁ אַב הָרַחְמָן. מְשׁוֹךְ עַבְדְּךָ אֶל רְצוֹנְךָ. יָרוּץ
עַבְדְּךָ כְּמוֹ אַיָּל. יִשְׁתַּחֲוֶה מוּל הָדָרֵךָ. כִּי יֶעֱרַב לוֹ
יְדִידוּתְךָ. מִנוֹפֶת צוּף וְכָל טַעַםהָדוּר נָאֶה זִיו הָעוֹלָם.
נַפְשִׁי חוֹלַת אַהֲבָתְךָ. אָנָּא קל נָא רְפָא נָא לָהּ. בְּהַרְאוֹת
לָהּ נֹעַם זִיוָךְ. אָז תִּתְחַזֵּק וְתִתְרַפֵּא. וְהָיְתָה לָהּ
שִׂמְחַת עוֹלָם:Father please give me strength, help me hold on to my
faithWhen I feel alone don’t hide your faceShow me your love, show me
your graceWhen I feel alone father please bring me homeהִגָּלֶה נָא
וּפְרוֹשׂ חָבִיב עָלַי. אֶת סֻכַּת שְׁלוֹמָךְ. תָּאִיר אֶרֶץ
מִכְּבוֹדְךָ. נָגִילָה וְנִשְׂמְחָה בָךְ. מַהֵר אָהוּב כִּי בָא מוֹעֵד.
וְחָנֵּנוּ כִּימֵי עוֹלָם
Translation:Beloved of the soul, Compassionate Father, draw Your servant to Your will. Then Your servant will hurry like a hart to bow before Your majesty. To him, Your friendship will be sweeter than the dripping of the honeycomb and all taste.Majestic, beautiful, radiance of the universe my soul is sick for your love. Please O G‑d, heal her now by showing her the pleasantness of Your radiance. Then she will be strengthened and healed and eternal gladness will be hers.
All worthy One — may Your mercy be aroused and please take pity on the son of Your beloved, because it is so very long that I have yearned intensely to see the splendor of Your strength, only these my heart desired, so please take pity and do not conceal Yourself.
Please be revealed and spread upon me, my Beloved, the shelter of Your peace that we may rejoice and be glad with You. Hasten, beloved, for the time has come, and show us grace as in days of old.
