A poem by Dr. Harry Hamburger


An angel saw a man

lying down upon the floor

his clothes torn and dirty

his condition was very poor


"You must get up now

before are dead and cold

forget past and the future

the day is growing old"


"There is Torah to read

and many mitzvot to do

every moment you are alive

is something holy and new"


"Leave your worries behind you

and finally take a stand

when take the first step

I will lend a Hand"
