At The Dawn

Rabbi Solomon ibn Gabirol 1021 (Málaga, Caliphate of Cordoba) – 1070 (Valencia, Taifa of Valencia/Toledo)



At the dawn I seek Thee,
Rock and refuge tried,
In due service speak Thee
Morn and eventide.

‘Neath Thy greatness shrinking,
Stand I sore afraid,
All my secret thinking
Bare before Thee laid.

Little to Thy glory
Heart or tongue can do;
Small remains the story,
Add we spirit too.

Yet since man’s praise ringing
May seem good to Thee,
I will praise Thee singing
While Thy breath’s in me.
