Yom Kippur Poem

Visions


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.
