A SOUL MATE (English)

Yedid nefesh av harachman

Meshoch avdecha el retzonecha


Yarutz avdecha kmo ayala

Yishtachave el mul hadarecha


My soul mate, Merciful father

Pull me your servant towards you


Your servant will run like a doe

And bow in front your grace


Yedid Nefesh is sung traditionally with Kabblat Shabbat in its quicker, more upbeat version.

The slower version is often a part of the third Shabbat meal.

It was composed by R' Eliezer Azikri, author of the Sefer Charedim and a well known kabbalist.
