Contribute a translationSource (English)
Dear Lord,
I am far from my loved ones
but not alone;
Miles away from my friends
but I have a Friend.
My heart is filled with courage
and I have hope,
For Thou art with me.
Thou art the light
that fills my soul
with brightness
and with joy.
I shall lean upon Thee
and not fall.
I shall accomplish
the task I have set out to do
and not fail;
With Thy help nobody can fail.
I love Thee, O Lord, my God,
with all my heart,
with all my soul
and with all my might,
And I know Thou dost love me
and will care for me.
Amen.

This prayer by Rabbi Dr. Edgar Magnin, then serving as rabbi of the Wilshire Boulevard Temple in Los Angeles, was included in the anthology, The Prayer Book of the Armed Forces (ed. Daniel A. Poling, 1951), p. 51.
