Come My Beloved

Come My Beloved,
Let's rise from the ashes,
Awaken Awaken!
Take off your veil,
Your veil of tears,
For He is compassionate,
And He will guide your steps.

Your light is radiant,
So rise up and shine,
Redemption is near,
You were chosen for the journey,
Leave your mark,
And follow your footsteps.

*This poem is strongly based upon the English translation of a 16th Century Jewish Shabbat prayer called Lkha Dodi written by Rabbi Shlomo Halevi.
