Only one thing

(20)  Dur akasher tara ogo

Oh Lord, my star of distant sky,
You I don't know;
No, I don't know, I don't.

Come stately and sit by my side;
Yourself, please don't cloak;
No, please don't cloak, please don't.

Many days and many pains,
Many words stored up to say...
To You I would speak everything;
Please don't remain deaf to me...
No, don't stay deaf, don't please.

Everyone's very own, everyone's beloved,
For everybody reverend...
One and all want You close,
Don't keep Yourself remote...
No, don't keep far, please don't.

Whatever the scholars might say,
Whatever scripture may explain...
I am Yours, and You are mine;
Other words I won't abide...
No, I don't mind, don't mind.
