From the Itim Institute | Poem

In the first stanza of this piyut, every line concludes with the letters 'bat (daughter/girl)'. Thus it was customarily sung in honor of a daughter:

He will proclaim freedom for all his children
And will keep you as the apple of his eye
Pleasant is your name and will not be destroyed
Repose and rest on the Sabbath day
