Let me rise in the morning like the sun in the east,
let me rise in the morning like the sun
with my face bright with purpose for the work to be done.
Let me rise, let me rise, let me rise.
Wrap me in the hues of mitzvot,
pink and orange, all shades of blue.
May I be Your emissary
in everything I say and do.
Let me sing Your praise at noonday like the sun as it stands
at the zenith of intention, let me praise.
And with the innocence of childhood, may I seek Your ways.
Baruk atah Adonai.
Bending knees, I bow before You.
May I subjugate false pride
as I partner in Tzedakah
with my people,by Your side.
Let my heart be filled with mercy like the sun as it sets,
let my heart be filled with mercy like the sun
as it makes the journey easier for workers going home.
Like the sun,
Let me be
like the sun.
