Words adapted from Jewish liturgy by Joan Beckow
Song adapted & arranged by Wendy B Stuart for two violins and cello
Wheresoever I turn mine eyes,
Around the earth or to the skies,
I see Thee…
I see Thee in the starry field,
In the harvest yield,
In every sigh,
In every sound.
An echo of Thy name is found.
A blade of grass, a simple flower,
A perfect witness to Thy matchless infinite power…
Thou art the air I breathe,
The light, the darkness, the winter cold.
Thou art the song that wells up
From the deep, deep springs of my soul…
Wheresoever I turn mine eyes …
I see Thee in the kiss of snow,
In the fire’s glow.
Each grain of sand,
Each drop of dew.
And lost am I to all but You.
The rising of the moon,
The raging of the sea,
And I’m adrift in half-forgotten memories of Thee.
