You are all standing this day before the Lord . . .

A final plea
The death speech
Everything important
laid on the table

Imagine what you’d say
if you knew this was
your last day.

That’s what’s being said
in front of all the people
and the One you might
only imagine.

Act as if everyone
deserves a capital letter
in front of their name

Even the people who
cut the wood and draw
the water.

Every one could be the One.

Are you nitzavim?
Are you on your feet?
Are you ready?

You’d better be.
