Contribute a translationTranslation (English)

In this silence
I do not call to You, my God.
I do not call out at all

Instead, for an instant of openness
I offer, not demand
I surrender, just for a moment

Instead of asking for my needs
or of challenging You, our usual way
I am quiet and available to You

You, You, You
I am here
I am open

“Open” by Rabbi Menachem Creditor was first shared through the Open Siddur Project via the project’s discussion group on Facebook on 28 June 2020.
