Adonai, glory be Your name for all eternity.
Wherever I walk may I find You always,
In the kindness of strangers,
In the stars,
In the warm summers breeze,
In the laughter of my friends,
In the fields of flowers,
In the transition of the seasons,
In music set to glorify You.
And in my darkest moments may I find You,
In my doubts,
In my despair,
In my stumbling off the path of righteousness,
In my shame,
In my fear,
In my failings,
In the moments I was rude,
In the moments I should have done better.
No matter how many times I fall,
No matter how many times I return,
No matter how many times I have sought You out,
You were always there,
At every moment,
Adonai, how beautiful is Your name.
Adonai, how holy are Your works.
Adonai, how gorgeous is the universe so filled with wonder and beauty.
Adonai, God of IsraelLit. ''the one who struggles with God.'' Israel means many things. It is first used with reference to Jacob, whose name is changed to Israel (Genesis 32:29), the one who struggles with God. Jacob's children, the Jewish people, become B'nai Israel, the children of Israel. The name also refers to the land of Israel and the State of Israel.
, holy are You.
