"Baruch-She-Amar" Adapted by Naomi Janowitz, Maggie Wenig and Further Adapted by Mary Theresa Streck ARCWP


BARUCH-SHE-AMAR

Blessed is She who spoke and the world became. 
Blessed is She. 
Blessed is She who in the beginning, gave birth. 
Blessed is She who says and performs. 
Blessed is She who declares and fulfills. 
Blessed is She whose womb covers the earth. 
Blessed is She whose womb protects all creatures. 
Blessed is She who nourishes those who are in awe of her. 
Blessed is She who lives forever, and exists eternally. 
Blessed is She who redeems and saves.
Blessed is her name.

BARUCH-SHE-AMAR

Blessed are You who spoke and the world became. 
Blessed are You. 
Blessed are You who in the beginning, gave birth. 
Blessed are You who says and performs. 
Blessed are You who declares and fulfills. 
Blessed are You whose womb covers the earth. 
Blessed are You whose womb protects all creatures. 
Blessed are You who nourishes those who are in awe of You. 
Blessed are You who lives forever, and exists eternally. 
Blessed are You who redeems and saves.
Blessed is Your name.
