The Throne of Glory Addresses the King

The Throne of Glory Addresses the King

King of miracles, King of power,
King of wonders, King of marvels:
Your throne hovers
yet does not move,
ever since You set the peg of the loom
which fixes the world’s course
and its perfection,
all these many years
and endless generations.
Your throne has never set foot on the floor
of the seventh heaven,
but hovers like a bird
and does not move.
The proudest of the proud,
adorned with crowns,
and all the royal living creatures
whom You created stand close together
beneath Your throne of glory,
bearing it with might, strength, and power.
They too have never set foot upon the floor
of the seventh heaven,
but hover like a bird
and do not move.
Thrice daily Your throne of glory prostrates itself before You
and says, ‘Zoharariel, Adonai, God of Israel,
sit upon me in glory, resplendent King,
for Your burden is most dear to me
and does not weigh me down.’
