With Trembling Hands

hands clasped

My hands tremble,
I cry out to You, 

My hands still tremble,
I pray,

My hands still tremble,
I give bread to the hungry,

My hands still tremble,
I stand in a wild field with the roaring wind,

My hands still tremble,
I weep,

My hands still tremble,
I praise You,

My hands still tremble,
I wrap myself in the tallit,

My hands still tremble,
I repent for my sins,

My hands still tremble,
I laugh with You,

My hands still tremble,
I scream at You with every fiber of my being asking why, why, why must they die?

My hands still tremble,
I reflect on Your Torah,

My hands still tremble,
I ask why must they hate me?

My hands still tremble,
I realize that You, O God, taught me love,

My hands still tremble,
I weep for joy, 

My hands still tremble,
I realize that there is only You,
there are none but You,
Eternal God,
My mind is always upon You.

Eternal God, my hands tremble, 
Because of the holiness of this world, I praise You God with trembling hands!
