A fragment from the Grace after meals, containing the end of the second blessing and the beginning of the third. Both blessings are heavily expanded with a sequence of verses comprised of the names of the weekly Torah portions in their order (the fragment includes אחרי מות to וזאת הברכה, presumably the end of the sequence).
The names of the months, constellations and books of Hagiographia are also interwoven into the third blessing. The verses are arranged into rhyming groups (strophes) of fives.
This format and elements are identical to a different piyyut of this type, found in Cambridge TS H10, 89 (partially published by A. Habermann: Yediʹot ha-Makhon le-ḥeker ha-shirah ha-ʹIvrit, v. 5 (1939), p. 99-100).
