Ample

by Elhanan Ben-Avraham

Ample as cups of the holy King

to amplify each wondrous thing

that earth and loving heaven bring,

His loyal servants songs will sing.

 

Former bonds of slavery

replaced by freedom’s bravery

beyond this world of knavery

to taste the banquet savory.

 

On wings of freedom to alight

to currents free of cruel fight

and soar above in peaceful flight

from night to blazing golden light.

Artistic Painting by Elhanan Ben-Avraham
