Epithalamium

Poet: Eleazar ben Kallir

‘Bound by affection, may your joy increase,
as you are wed today in love and gladness;
be glad and rejoice in the Lord your God.

‘Bridegroom,

He Shall be King!

Poet: Eleazar ben Kallir

Yours, O Lord, is the sovereignty and You are exalted over all.

A king who says to the sea: ‘Thus far shall you come’ —
          He shall be king!
