Ana BeKoach is an ancient Tefilah for Israel’s redemption from exile. During Chanukah, Rabbi Yechiel Michel Dorfman zal (Ukraine 1913 – Yerushalayim 2006, Rosh Yeshiva of the Breslov Central Yeshiva in Meah Shaarim) sang this traditional melody so each word of the Tefilah would be repeated seven times, in accord with Kabbalah.
“We beg You, by the power of Your right arm’s greatness, untie the bonds of our distress.
Accept the heartfelt prayer of Your nation; strengthen us, purify us, You who are revered.
Please, Mighty One, those who seek Your unity – guard them like the pupil of the eye.
Bless them, purify them, pity them, may the mercy of Your righteousness be granted to them always.
Powerful Holy One, in Your abundant goodness, guide Your community.
Singular exalted One, show favor to Your Nation which proclaims Your holiness.
Accept our plea and hear our cry, O Knower of mysteries.
Blessed is the Name of His glorious Kingdom for all eternity.”
