white and pure.
A rose among the thorns, striped with red.
Stripes of our iniquities...
Stripes of our transgressions...
Stripes of our sin...
O Shoshanah, O Hosannah
How you love the Bride, a lily among the thorns...
Splashed in crimson, yet made
The water flowed red, the Bride rinsed pure, yet made white again.
Your judgment and compassion surrounding her every side.
may Your Compassion and Loving Kindness surround the congregation.
YHWH, YHWH, you are
Slow to anger,
Abounding in kindness,
Abounding in faithfulness,
Extending kindness to the thousandth generation,
You remit not Your punishment on those who refuse teshuvah but You free from guilt
May the parents of the precious beings raise them in the ways of YHWH.
