It Is Your Coronation – Each Rosh Hashanah

Dear, Dear, Lord, it is your Coronation.

You created the cosmos for all of us.

You are the Creator, Architect, Designer,

Landscape Artist, Ruler, Judge and King.


Your Coronation takes place annually.

Yet, we Crown you over and over again.

As we, Dear Lord, choose you to be our King.

By our conscious choice, our desire is voiced.


The shofar awakens our soul’s purpose.

To abide by Your Laws and Moral Code.

To recall the universe which You gave us,

Conditionally, if we fulfill our role.


As Your partners to the Tikkun Olam,

We must repair unkept promises from Sinai.
