Bati l'Gani (I Have Come Into My Garden)
Composer: Meira Warshauer
Publisher: Hildegard Publishing Company
This work offers glimpses of intimacy between lovers, between Creator and Creation, the delight of recognition: Divine goodness flowing into the world. Here, Shechinah, God's in-dwelling feminine Presense, communes with Creator in the earthly garden of Creation.
It is inspired by Song of Songs, Ch. 5, vs. 1
I have come into my garden,
My sister bride.
I have gathered my myrrh with my spices,
I have eaten my honeycomb with my honey,
I have drunk my wine with my milk.
Drink and be drunk, beloved ones.
