O compassionate Father, help me and make me worthy to be always joyful, so that I will merit to arouse myself always to great joy, especially on Sabbaths and holidays, and I will merit that my heart burn with fire and flame in holy joy, with great desire and longing and fervor for Your Name and Your service — until the fervor of my heart be drawn down to my feet, so that I will merit to lift my feet with great joy and I will merit to do holy dancing in great joy.

Yitzhak Buxbaum in Jewish Tales of Mystic Joy
