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!’
