The setting sun rays floated along the Promised Land’s Horizon as the Angels on High had donned their judicial robes.
Below we walked, Souls embracing Souls, in front of our eyes – our longings, worries and hopes.
Children bathed in His Loving Majesty we put away our Fears
as the prayers flowed, streaming down with our tears.
Sleeplike we were sheeplike as our Shepard embraced us
in His Fatherly hand and wiped away the year’s rusty dust.
And there in front of our eyes the King appeared in a dream
and all our agony was not what it seemed.
The broken hearts, the lost loves, the penniless debts
gave way to rivers of heart pouring regrets.
And as the Stars glowed
new Life began to sow
And with every sway, with every chant, with every song
as we prayed in our Home which our Souls for 2000 years have longed.
Turning into a dream of prayer shawls, of covered women’s heads, and the sweet children’s faces
so beautifully dressed in white garments and laces
united Heaven and Earth
Giving all of Us a New Birth.
And as the Gates of the Day were slowly closing
all our sins were frozen.
We had become Angels.
Each one of US becoming part of the Promised Land’s Breathtaking Hills.
What a dream it was
to celebrate Kippur
according to G-d’s Forgiving LAWS –
renewing us with Holy Cause.
Oh! What a dream it was!
