God of the righteous
and the unrighteous,
man’s company has
devastated me.
Not once has he
rebelled against my rule;
he has closed his eyes
to himself, and has not found himself.
His dust is a stranger
to the joy of disobedience,
a stranger to the spark
of pride.
The prey says to the
huntsman, ‘Seize me’:
save me from the all
too obedient servant!
Set me free from such a
remember my obedience
of yesterday.
My lofty aspiration
through him has been abased;
alas for me, alas for
me, alas for me!
His nature is raw, his
resolution weak,
this opponent cannot
withstand one blow from me.
I need a servant of God
possessed of vision,
I need a riper
Take back this
plaything of water and clay:
a child’s toy
suits not a man of a certain age.
What is man? A handful
of straw;
one spark from me is
enough for a handful of straw.
If nothing but straw
existed in this world,
what profited it to
endow me with so much fire?
It were a shame to melt
a piece of glass;
to melt a rock-that is
a proper task!
I have become so
saddened by all my triumphs
that now I come to You
for recompense;
I seek from You one who
dares to deny me—
guide me, to such a man
of God.
I need a man who will
twist my neck,
whose glance will set
my body quivering,
one who will say,
‘Depart from my presence’,
one in whose eyes I am
not worth two barleycorns.
Grant me, O God, one
living man of faith;
haply I shall know
delight at last in defeat.
