Hymn for the Descent to the Merkava

The beginning of praise
     and the start of song,
the beginning of joy
     and the start of jubilation —
these are sung by the princes
     who daily serve the Lord God of Israel.

They exalt His throne of glory:
‘Rejoice, rejoice, throne of glory!
Sing, sing for joy, seat of the Most High!
Exult, exult, O precious vessel,
     so marvelously fashioned!
You will gladden the king upon you,
as a bridegroom is gladdened
     in his bridal-chamber!’
