This is a simple “call and response” congregational song for the beginning of a worship service, “The Shema.”

The song puts to music the scripture passage known as the “greatest commandment” of Jesus, Mark 12:29-30, where he quotes the ancient Hebrew call to worship of Deuteronomy 6:4.

Hear oh  Is-ra-el,

The Lord our God

The Lord is one.

Love the Lord your God with all your heart,

and with all your soul,   

and with all your mind,

and with all your  strength.
