Have you noticed the cantor’s call —
deep in sorrow and with those who suffer?
The cantor stands before the pall.
Justice, justice the cantor calls to pursue
for the female justice who was Yahweh’s follower,
through and through —
so proud of her people who through
centuries of pain
experienced, persevered and remained
faithful to the vision, eternity’s call —
justice, justice, was her call
to seek freedom, choice, inclusion, balanced scales —
and the mutuality of the beloved community for all.
Such shall not fail.
