The melody for the current setting is attributed to Rabbi Nahman of Bratslav (1772-1811), the great-grandson of the founder of the Hassidic movement. The text is by Rabbi Isaac Luria (1534-1572), the leader of a kabbalistic school in Safed. In his song the physical union between the singer and the Sabbath personified brings rapture and spiritual transcendence. Jacobson brings his extensive scholarly and musical skills to the edition, providing an English transliteration of the Aramaic text, and richness of musical affect to the setting.
