A mystical hymn, known as the "Shir ha-Kabod" (Hymn of Glory), ascribed to R. Judah, the saint of Speyer (Landshuth, "Hegyon Leb," pp. 265 et seq.), which is honored by many congregations with a prominent place at the close of the morning service in association with the Psalm of the Day [Temple Service]. It is likewise read on the Eve of Atonement, and in English congregations is then associated with a simple melody, coming, like the hymn, from the Rhineland, but not dating back further than the early part of the eighteenth century (see Zunz, "Literaturgesch." p. 300). For music see next page.
