Called, in one moment of divine inspiration,
by the One who reaches down from seventh heaven,
with His right hand, to guide the contrite of heart
to safe shores, where rest may be found
from the tumults of life that endanger the soul,
bringing light to those bound in the darkness
of the world, unable to find their way.

I was constrained by cords of mental bonds,
trapped by the Deceiver, and secured in the lair
of the Adversary, until G-d freed me from my shackles,
appearing as my redeemer within the lion’s den,
where I would have been torn, rendered into pieces,
had He not shown me a way out of the arena,
and brought me to safety, after crossing the sea.
