    1. From Psalm 139

    1. Adonai chaqartani vatëda
    2. ata yadata shivti v'qumi; banta l'rëi mërachoq
    3. orchi v'rivi zërita; v'khol--d'rakhai hiskanta

    1 O LORD, you have searched me
    and you know me.

    2 You know when I sit and when I rise;
    you perceive my thoughts from afar.

    3 You discern my going out and my lying down;
    you are familiar with all my ways.

    4 Before a word is on my tongue
    you know it completely, O LORD.

    5 You hem me in—behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.

    6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    7 Where can I go from your spirit?
    Where can I flee from your presence?

    8 If I go up to the heavens you are there;
    if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.

    9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
    if I settle on the far side of the sea,

    10 even there your hand will guide me,
    your right hand will hold me fast.

    11 If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide me
    and the light become night around me,"

    12 even the darkness will not be dark to you;
    the night will shine like the day,
    for the darkness is as light to you.

    14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful,
    I know that full well.

    17 How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!
    How vast is the sum of them!

    18 Were I to count them,
    they would outnumber the grains of sand.
    When I am awake,
    I am still with you.

    23. choqrëni ël v'da l'vavi; b'chanëni v'da sarappai

    23 Search me, O God, and know my heart;
    test me and know my anxious thoughts.

    24 See if there is any offensive way in me,
    and lead me in the way everlasting.

    2. Psalm 121

    Metrical version by
    Michael Wigglesworth (1631--1705)

    I to the hills lift up mine eyes,
    from whence shall come mine aid.
    Mine help doth from Jehovah come,
    which heaven and earth hath made.
    He will not let thy foot be moved,
    nor slumber; that thee keeps.
    Lo, he that keepeth Israel,
    he slumbreth not, nor sleeps.
    The Lord thy keeper is, the Lord
    on thy right hand the shade.
    The sun by day, nor moon by night
    shall thee by stroke invade.
    The Lord will keep thee from all ill:
    thy soul he keeps alway,
    Thy going out and thy income,
    the Lord keeps now and aye.

    3. Vertue

    George Herbert (1593--1633)

    Sweet day, so cool, so calm, so bright
    The bridall of the earth and skie:
    The dew shall weep thy fall to night;
    For thou must die.

    Sweet rose, whose hue angrie and brave
    Bids the rash gazer wipe his eye:
    Thy root is ever in its grave,
    And thou must die.

    Sweet spring, full of sweet dayes and roses,
    A box where sweets compacted lie;
    My musick shows ye have your closes,
    And all must die.

    Onely a sweet and vertuous soul,
    Like season'd timber, never gives;
    But though the whole world turn to coal,
    Then chiefly lives.

    4. The Bliss of Brahman

    Sri Aurobindo Ghose (1872-1950)

    I am swallowed in a sea-white foam of bliss,
    I am a curving wave of God's delight,
    A shapeless flow of happy passionate light,
    A whirlpool of the streams of Paradise.
    I am a cup of His felicities,
    A thunderblast of His golden ecstasy's might,
    A fire of joy upon creation's height;
    I am His rapture's wonderful abyss.

    I am drunken with the glory of the Lord,
    I am vanquished by the beauty of the Unborn;
    I have looked, alive, upon the Eternal's face.
    My mind is cloven by His radiant sword,
    My heart by His beatific touch is torn,
    My life is a meteor-dust of His flaming Grace.

    5. Let Evening Come

    Jane Kenyon (1947-1995)

    Let the light of late afternoon
    shine through chinks in the barn, moving
    up the bales as the sun moves down.

    Let the crickets take up chafing
    as a woman takes up her needles
    and her yarn. Let evening come.

    Let dew collect on the hoe abandoned
    in long grass. Let the stars appear
    and the moon disclose her silver horn.

    Let the fox go back to its sandy den.
    Let the wind die down. Let the shed
    go black inside. Let evening come.

    To the bottle in the ditch, to the scoop
    in the oats, to air in the lung
    let evening come.

    Let it come, as it will, and don't
    be afraid. God does not leave us
    comfortless, so let evening come.
