Netzach b’Netzach

Be the sun, shine

Exude heat
Warm those nearby
Draw people to your hearth
Offer safety and offer life

Emit light
So others may find knowledge
Understand each other
Comprehend the world
And not be afraid

Disperse colors
Thrilling yellow, cold piercing violet
Ignitable red
And green, of course, the green of growth
How could we be glad without colors?

Embody netzach
Moment by moment, day after day, eon by eon
Produce heat, light, and color
From source without end

And when your warmth is shut out
Knowledge rejected
Your colors painted over in black
Continue in netzach

Then you will live in the image of G-d,

Who shines His face upon us and gives us peace
