Days of Awe

The shofar's blasting,
"From bondage, be free"
Creation's groaning
In humility
This is a time
For deep reflection
Yahweh's King
Renewing His Creation
"We were whole and
We were broken
We'll be whole again"
Mercy shines like
Golden forests
Transforming their trees
The winds of change are
Rustling through them,
Rustling through their leaves
"Rosh Hashanah,
Rosh Hashanah"
Awesome are these days,
"Rosh Hashanah,
Rosh Hashanah"
These are days of awe

Zion's Future Glory

Sing, barren woman;   Give birth to jubilation   For through your offspring's seed   Will come the longed-for consolation...
