"Hester Panim": Uncovering the Hidden G-d

You concealed yourself
When our wickedness triumphed.

And some say, 
You looked away whenever wickedness triumped over us.

I say, you peeked through divine hands.
And with divine eyes.
Caught glimpses of our persistent goodness.
So that when you withdrew, you also came close.

Handing us Your words. Dressing us in Your truths.
True, we still shroud You in mystery.
But you are always nearby.

Barukh atah Adonai Eloheinu Melekh ha-olam asher kidshanu b'mitzvotav v'tzivanu la'asok b'divrei Torah.
G-d of our ancestors, allow me through study, to bring what is seen into hiding and what is hidden into plain sight. 
To encounter You and Your revelation, and to know Your mystery.  Amen.
