כי לישועתך קוינו
BECAUSE FOR YOUR SALVATION WE HAVE HOPED
We hoped for You, and no other people hoped for You. We did not put our hope in the promises of men or of the nations, nor in our own strength and cunning; our hope was solely in You, Hashem. And we did not hope merely for our own glory and happiness, but rather for Your glory which will be established with the coming of Moshiach. “Let Your kindness, Hashem, be upon us just as we hoped to You” (Tehillim 33:22).
