Hymn of Unity
By Samuel Ben Kalonymus (Trans. Alice Lucas)
 
WHO shall narrate Thy wonders wrought of old?
The utterance of the lips Thou didst create,
But all Thy majesty and power untold,
  Who shall narrate?
 
Thy ways on earth in song we celebrate,        5
Though none may Thy similitude behold,
Yet know we by Thy works that Thou art great.
 
Thousands of angels, by Thy word controll’d
To do thy bidding, Thy commands await:
Yet of them all, Thy wonders manifold        10
  Who shall narrate?
