Heal us, now — music by Leon Sher

Cantor Leon Sher who wrote Heal Us Now

Thank You, God!

Thank You for the performance of Heal Us Now — written by Cantor Leon Sher. Our Central Union Church Choir sang it this morning and I found myself sitting up straight and with my attention riveted to the music. I felt like a bird dog, pointing!

First the cantor (Dr. David Stein) sang in Hebrew — then the choir joined in with these lyrics:

We pray for healing of the body

we pray for healing of the soul

. . . Please heal us now.

The other words that lodged in my heart were:

Heal our people . . . Heal our land

It seemed to me a perfect prayer. We do so need to be healed — there are layers and layers of us that need healing — well, at least inside me.  And, God, it’s the profoundly joyful calling of those being healed — to cry out for healing for our people — all people — and our LAND.

Sigh.  Oh Dear God! Help us to join hands and focus on all that unites us. It is so easy to focus on how we differ — missing the point, almost entirely! Help us, God!  Please HELP us!
