Joseph Friedlander, comp.  The Standard Book of Jewish Verse.  1917.
By Solomon Ibn Gabirol
UNTO thy Rock, O my soul, uplift thy gaze,
His loving-kindness day and night implore.
Remember thy Creator in the days
Of youth, in song His glorious name adore.
He is thy portion through earth’s troubled maze,        5
Thy shelter, when life’s pilgrimage is o’er.
Thou knowest that there waits for thee always
A peaceful resting-place His throne before.
Therefore the Lord my God I bless and praise,
Even as all creatures bless Him evermore.        10
