(Re)turning Meditation

There is a verse from Lamentations (5:21) which I am reflecting on today as I think about the theme 'turning' for the Monthly Reflections Rug. This verse is the basis for a traditional Jewish prayer and folk song that is chanted in Hebrew:

Hashivenu Adonai elecha v'nashuva chadesh ya meinu ki-kedem.

Help us turn back to you, O Lord, and we shall return. Renew us as in the days of old!
