Hebrew PoetryThe 4th of Iyar is the Yahrtzeit of Rabbi Shlomo ibn Gabirol of Malaga, Spain. He died on April 21, 1021.

 

THE ROYAL CROWN

May this, my prayer aid mankind

The path of right and worth to find;

The living God, His wondrous ways,

Herein inspire my song of praise.

Nor is the theme at undue length set down,

Of all my hymns behold "The Royal Crown."

I.

Wonderful are Your works, as my soul overwhelmingly knows.
Yours, O Lord, are the greatness and the might,
the beauty, the triumph, and the splendor.


Yours, O Lord, is the Kingdom, and You are exalted as head over all.
Yours are all riches and honor: Yours, the creatures of the heights and depths.
They bear witness that they perish, while You endure.
Yours is the might in whose mystery our thoughts can find no stay, so far are You beyond us.


In You is the veiled retreat of power, the secret and the foundation.
Yours is the name concealed from the sages,
The force that sustains the world on naught,
And that can bring to light every hidden thing.

Yours is the loving-kindness that rules over all Your creatures,
And the good treasured up for those who fear Thee.
Yours are the mysteries that transcend understanding and thought.

Yours is the life over which extinction holds no sway,
And Your throne is exalted above every sovereignty,
And Your habitation hidden in the shrouded height.

Yours is the existence from the shadow of
whose light every being was created,
Of which we say, in His shadow we live.

Yours are the two worlds between which You have set a boundary,
The first for deeds and the second for reward.
Yours is the reward which You for the righteous have stored up and hidden,
Yea, You saw it was good and concealed it.
