You transformed my sorrow into dancing. You unraveled my sackcloth and filled me with happiness[.] so that I might sing tribute to You and never stop. HASHEM is my G-d, I will thank You forever. [Psalms 30:12-13]

הָפַ֣כְתָּ מִסְפְּדִי֮ לְמָח֪וֹל לִ֥י פִּתַּ֥חְתָּ שַׂקִּ֑י וַֽתְּאַזְּרֵ֥נִי שִׂמְחָֽה׃ לְמַ֤עַן יְזַמֶּרְךָ֣ כָ֭בוֹד וְלֹ֣א יִדֹּ֑ם ה' אֱ֝לֹקַ֗י לְעוֹלָ֥ם אוֹדֶֽךָּ׃ [תהלים ל:יב-יג]ו

Hafachta mispedi le-machol li pitachta saki va-t'azreyni simcha. Le-maan y'zamercha chavod ve-lo yidom AMONAI elokai le-olam odeka.

I try to talk to G-d every chance that I get
When I don't know what to pray, I just say where I'm at
Thanks for eating, breathing, teething, or just being my Creator
Thanks for taking me out, and bringing me back home later
People always run to You, when they feel depressed
And they tune You right out when they're doing their best
'Cause this world is a mess
I can't stay 'till the end
Then I place my request and it starts to make sense
Thanks for stuffing in my breath so that I can breathe out
When I'm out and about and I feel real devout
I remember Your rain makes every blade of grass spout
You gave me basically everything
From my body and my soul
To my questioning
You're the reason that we praise
Your'e the reason that we cry
Raise us up
Let us sleep
And when it's the right time
We die
That's all there is
That's all there is
That's all there is...
(You took my grief
Unmade the mess
Opened up my darkened clothes
And turned them to a sack of happiness)
You created this world and everything in it, too
So that means every time I dance, I'm dancing with You
