The Shehekiyanu prayer is traditionally said when something new has begun, but is actually a prayer of thanksgiving to God for bringing us through the last season.
Originally released April 21, 2019 as a single, this is now the title track of the 5-song EP

Shehekhiyanu, vʼkiyamanu, vʼhiggianu lazman hazeh
Shehekhianu, vʼkiʼyamanu, vʼhiggianu, lazman hazeh
Blessed are you O Lord our God who has carried us to this day
Shehekhianu, vʼkiʼyamanu, vʼhiggianu lazman hazeh
Baruch atah Eloheinu, King over all the land
You preserve our life and defend your own
And youʼve brought us to this season again
You uphold your people in every way,
No shadow of turning in You
You are faithful to every generation, we can trust in You
So where are the Hittites, Perezites, Jebusites, Philistines, and Canaanites too?
Pharaoh, the Greeks, the Romans and the Nazis
We have victory in You!
Since ancient times until today Your Right Hand brought us through
When we see the darkness rise, Your light comes bursting through
