Abraham, Our Father

אַבְﬞרָם אָבִﬞינוּ | Ạvˈṛàm ’Àˈvịnụ | Avram Avinu Abraham, Our Father, also known by its incipit קואנדוﬞ אﬞיﬞל ריﬞײ נִמְרוֹדﬞ | ˈKwạndọ ẹḷ Ṛẹy Nịmˈṛọđ | Cuando el Rey Nimrod When King Nimrod, is a Sephardic פִּיּוּטִ | pịˈyụt | piyyut liturgical poem.

The lyrics of the song are abridged from the earlier piyyut לה בﬞוקאסײוֽן דיﬞ אבﬞראהאם | Ḷạ Vọkạˈsỵọn dẹ Ạvṛạˈhạm | La Vocación de Avraham The Calling of Abraham, based on the still earlier ׿ה ׿ם ׿ינוּ | Mạ‘ăˈsèh ’Ạvṛàˈhàm ’Àˈvịnụ | Maaseh Avraham Avinu The Story of Abraham Our Father.

The melody, apparently composed around 1890 by an anonymous composer in Tangier, Morocco, is in the Jewish scale.
