Almost upon the threshold of the Land,
Moshe set down the journeys we had gone
From Ramses, to Sukkot, Eitam, and on.
In each place we were helped to understand
The consequence that needed to be drawn
From Torah, here and now, so as to free
A spark of truth from its captivity
In circumstance; and in this way we won
The Law — once given, mastered gradually —
And our souls were enabled to ascend,
Through love and fear our limits to transcend,
Increasing both in truest liberty
And boundenness to our eternal Friend
Whose Land we enter at our journey’s end.
