When darkness falls on Friday night,
Jewish women and girls spread the light.
We set up the candlesticks copper, silver, gold,
And we do what our ancestors were told.
We wave our hands three times in the air,
And we rest them on our eyes in this holy atmosphere.
Shabbos is our only focus right now.
If you don’t know the way to welcome Shabbos, I’ll show you how.
