Intended as part of a song cycle on Jewish poetry by Jehuda haLevi, this is the movement that was finished first. And as of now (2018) the only one that has been completed. The others are still a work in progress…
This song deals with a longing to see God:
‘If only I could see Him in a dream,
I would sleep forever and never wake.’
Score availble on request.
