Yom Kippur Poem


My eyes toward visions of God I raise

Though inner shadows obstruct my gaze

And feet that would upon God’s path have tread

Lead me far away from Him instead.

My God, I pray, do let Your wisdom’s light

Relieve me of the burden of my plight

Take heed of my sincere attempts to change

And favorable conditions thus arrange.
