To the Tune of: Avinu Malkainu

Two candles she lights
On Friday night
One for herself, one for Avraham
But for a son none

Sarah Imainu
A role-model of womanhood
Like a queen, so refined
Always on our minds

Struggles in her life
Avraham had a second wife
By Pharaoh she was taken
For a son, against Hagar she couldn’t win


Tears streaming down
Can’t hold back her frown
As she Davens for a son
At Licht Bentchon (candle-lighting)

My wish is granted
I have offspring
Thank you, Hashem
For giving me a son
