Ki Eshmera Shabbat

The lyrics of Ki Eshmera Shabbat - ‘As I keep Shabbat’ - were written by poet and author Rabbi Avraham Ibn Ezra (1089-1164) from Toledo, Spain. The song speaks of the importance of keeping Shabbat as it is an alliance between God and those who observe the religious rulings - ‘when I keep the Sabbath, God keeps me’.
