Wake The Dawn

עוּרָה כְבוֹדִי עוּרָה הַנֵּבֶל וְכִנּוֹר אָעִירָה שָּׁחַר
Awake, my glory; awake, with the violin and the harp and I will wake the dawn. Psalm 57, verse 9
It is said that King David would rise at night at the change of wind, reach for his harp and sing to God in praise. The sages teach us that we should strive to be like King David in his devotion to the Almighty. We should wake before the sun rises in order to “wake the dawn,” and not that the sun should wake us. The goal of early rising is a meaningful practice to symbolize that we take control of nature and not that nature control us. The mystics say that “my glory” that the Psalmist refers to is the higher self, the pure and unblemished soul of the individual.
