Selected Religious Poems of Solomon ibn Gabirol, tr. by Israel Zangwill, [1923], at

p. 68



Forget thy affliction, and cease supplication,
  Recall thy release from Egyptian rod,
The hand is not short that hath laid earth’s foundation,
  Who stretched out the heavens remaineth thy God.

And at thy due season the glory that dwelleth
  In Zion shall rest on thy head that great day,
When moonlight as sunlight in radiance welleth
  And sunlight shall glow with a sevenfold ray.
