Hodu L’Adonai Ki Tob

by Samuel De Lemos

As I was driving
towards synagogue
I reflected on my life.

My life is full of blessings
It’s hard to see
with how busy I’ve been,

but I saw a quiver full
of happy children
all sitting
underneath the shade.

Their smiles and sweet ease,
made my heart skip a beat.

My new job,
I couldn’t have asked
for better position.

My wife patient, loving
and wise.

O’ LORD,

I have something
to smile about.

Something
to be glad about.

Something
to be grateful for.

All I can say is,

Hodu l’Adonai Ki Tob
I thank You for it all!
