Where I wander -- You!

by Levi Yitzchak of Berditchov

English version by Perle Besserman
Original Language Hebrew

Where I wander -- You!
Where I ponder -- You!
Only You everywhere, You, always You.
You, You, You.
When I am gladdened -- You!
And when I am saddened -- You!
Only You, everywhere You!
You, You, You.
Sky is You!
Earth is You!
You above! You below!
In every trend, at every end,
Only You, everywhere You!

-- from The Way of the Jewish Mystics, Edited by Perle Besserman

Commentary by Ivan M. Granger

A beautiful poem filled with the ecstatic recognition that God is in everything, IS everything. All of existence becomes a grand game of hide-and-seek.

A chant that can open the heart and eyes:

Only You everywhere, You, always You.
You, You, You.
