Introduction to the Shema - We Praise G-d's Creation of the Luminaries
"G*d, The Master over all works, the Blessed One Who is Blessed by the mouth of every soul, His greatness and goodness fill the world! Wisdom and might surround His glory. He Who exalts Himself over the holy Chayos and is splendorous in glory above the Chariot - merit and fairness are before His throne, kindness and mercy fill His glory. Good are the luminaries that our G*d created, He fashioned them with wisdom, with insight and with discernment. Strength and power did He place in them, to be dominant within the world. Full of luster and radiating brightness, beautiful is their luster throughout the whole world. Glad when they go forth and exultant when they return, they do with awe the will of their Creator. Splendor and glory they bestow upon His Name, jubilation and glad song to the remembrance of His kingdom. He called out to the Sun and it glowed with light, He saw and fashioned the form of the Moon. Praise do they bestow upon Him, all the host on high!"
