      Poetry submission for Yom Kippur


      Day of Atonement 
      by Kathy Napper
       
       
      Assembled here upon this day
      Rank on rank, all dressed in white
      Forgive us, Elokim, we pray
      May we find merit in your sight
       
      Absolve us of our many sins,
      We have transgressed your laws, and hence
      As this Atonement Day begins
      We turn to you in penitence
       
      Please pardon us the errant thought
      The angry word, the thoughtless deed
      Return us, as your Torah taught
      Succor us in our time of need
       
      On this, the greatest Day of Awe
      G-d, cleanse my sins, redeem my soul
      And sanctify me with your law
      Forgive my sins and make me whole
       
      Write us for Life, Oh King of Kings
      We are Your People standing here
      Grant us the grace your mercy brings
      And Seal us for a Better Year
