My family sings a zemer called al ahavosich, which i have never seen in a standard bencher/zmiros book.

Does anyone know where this zemer comes from?

  • Could you please put up a recording of the nigun of this zemer? Commented Oct 31, 2016 at 20:22

If the song that you are referring to is this one, it was composed by R' Yehuda HaLevi in the 11th or 12th century according to Hebrew Wikipedia.

    Great find. I had never heard of this one. Now that I read it's text it is indeed very beautifully written.
