“Who hath ascended up into heaven, and descended? Who hath gathered the wind in his fists? Who hath bound the waters in his garment? Who hath established all the ends of the earth? What is his name, and what is his son’s name, if thou knowest?” – Proverbs 30:4, JPS 1917 Tanach
Rising above, falling below
the waves of emotions, tossing to and fro.
If I ascend to the heights,
my spirit will be greeted by Your grace;
and if I descend into the abyss,
there, You may be found in the darkness.
Before I came into existence,
You knew the depths of my soul;
so, I will take comfort,
even when the storms assail,
and the waters rise, threatening to engulf me.
For You have reckoned the four corners of the world,
in a single glance, taking all into account;
and, graced me with Your presence,
through the manifestation of Your son.
