Cycle for Yom Kippur
I will stand on judgment day
And my hands will open of themselves
One for credit
And one for debit
And I am in between
Fate and soul equal.
All my vows – I have broken
All my oaths – I have broken
I have sinned, I have transgressed
And I have forbade myself from last Yom Kippur to this Yom Kippur,
And from this Yom Kippur to the next Yom Kippur what is good for us
And I shall do so again
I am stamped for sin and life!
All my vows – I have broken, I have sinned, fallen from the edge – in my opinion, I lost direction for a moment, and add sin upon sin. I inflamed the streets,
I burned to the moon,
I embarked on the train,
I rang all the bells.
I was gathered with atonement for the charity to paupers.
I will come to judgment of the Creator of the Universe and show what is good in my heart, how good are your tents O Jacob, and know that parts of the world I filled in great faith, age, and awe, and I will say a blessing.
