Give ear to my words, O Lady, and remove not from me the beauty of thy countenance.
Convert our sorrow into joy, and our tribulation into happiness.
That our enemies may fall beneath our feet, and that by thy virtue their heads may be broken.
That our tongue may bless thee, and that all flesh may confess thy holy name.
For thy spirit is sweeter than honey, and thy heritage surpasseth the honey and its comb.
