Make a Fixed Time for Study

עשה תורתך קבע – אמור מעט ועשה הרבה

– Psalm 95

Ring out joy to God
Sing to the God within our wall
face him thankingly in song
His hands lift mountains
while smoothing valleys
form oceans
while sculpting land.
We come
Praying, praising, worshipping who formed us
don’t join the generation
of wanderers in the wilderness
who made me wait
while they judged my work.
Forty years I fought and hoped
then I had to say
They were a people who lost heart
and never found the way
Therefore, they should have no rest.

Translation © Rabbi Edward Feld and Rabbi Arthur Gould 1971
