Levi Yitschak of Berdichov. Where I Wander ... You

Where I wander -- You!

by Levi Yitzchak of Berditchov
English version by Perle Besserman

Where I wander -- You!
Where I ponder -- You!
Only You everywhere, You, always You.
You, You, You.
When I am gladdened -- You!
And when I am saddened -- You!
Only You, everywhere You!
You, You, You.
Sky is You!
Earth is You!
You above! You below!
In every trend, at every end,
Only You, everywhere You!


-- from The Way of the Jewish Mystics, Edited by Perle Besserman
