This is the alphabetic acrostic pizmon “Adon haSeliḥot” recited during seliḥot and on Yom Kippur in the liturgical custom of Sefarad. The alphabetic acrostic translation is by Rabbi David de Sola Pool, from his maḥzor for Rosh haShanah, Tefilot l’Rosh haShanah (1937), p. 36-37. I have replaced archaisms ‘Thy’ and ‘Thee’ with ‘you’ and ‘your’ and re-Hebraized divine names. –Aharon Varady
