Opening Songs

Hineh Mah Tov הנה מה טוב

Behold, how good and pleasant it is for people to dwell together in unity.

Hinei ma tov uma na-im
Shevet achim gam yachad.

הִנֵּה מַה-טּוֹב וּמַה-נָּעִים
שֱׁבֶת אַחִים גַּם יָחַד.

Im Tirtzu עם תרצו

If you will it, it is no dream. To be a free people in our land of Zion and Jerusalem.

Im tirtzu, ein zo agada lih-yot am chofshi b'artzeinu b'eretz tziyon virushalayim.

אִם תִרְצוּ, אֵין זֹו אַגָדָה לְהיוֹת עַם
חָפְשִׁי בְּאַרְצֵינוּ אֶרֶץ צִיוֹן וִירוּשָׁלָיִם.

Ki Eshmirah Shabbat כי אשמרה שבת

If I keep Shabbat, God keeps me. It is a sign forever between God and me.

Ki eshm'rah Shabbat El yishm'reini.
Ot hi l’ol’mei ad beino u'veini.

כי אשמרה שבת אל ישמרני.
אות היא לעולמי עד בינו וביני.

Hava Nashira הבה נשירה

Let us sing a song of praise

Hava nashira shir halleluya

הבה נשירה שיר הללו-יה.

Shabbat Candle Lighting

Shabbat Candle Lighting הדלקת נרות שבת

Light both candles.
Traditionally one covers the eyes while reciting the following blessing.

Blessed are You, Adonai our God, Sovereign of the universe, who hallows us with Your commandments, and has commanded us to kindle the Sabbath light.

Baruch atah Adonai Eloheinu melech ha-olam, asher kid'shanu b'mitzvotav, v'tzivanu l'hadlik neir shel shabat.

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם,
אֲשֶׁר קִדְּשָׁנוּ בְּמִצְוֹתָיו,
וְצִוָּנוּ לְהַדְלִיק נֵר שֶׁל שַׁבָּת.

Lecha Dodi לכה דודי

Come, my beloved, with a chorus of praise,
Welcome the Sabbath Bride, the Queen of the days.

“Keep and Remember”!—said in one single utterance
Adonai the One, made us hear:
One is the name of God, One is Adonai!
Reflected in fame, in glory, and in praise!

To welcome the Sabbath, we joyously hurry;
It is forever a fountain of blessing—
In God’s primordial planning, it came last of all days,
But even then was the crown of creation.

O holy sanctuary and royal city
arise from your desolate years!
Too long have you dwelled in the valley of tears,
Now God’s tenderness will rain down upon you.

Shake off the dust, O Israel! Arise!
Dress up in your finest clothes, My people,
for through Jesse of Bethlehem
you will draw nearer to Me and be redeemed.

Awake! Awake! The new light is shining!
With that radiance, the world will glow;
Sing! For darkness is hidden by joyful praise—
Adonai’s glory brings light to you!

May your oppressors be challenged
and your enemies defeated;
God will exalt and rejoice in you,
Joyful as a bridegroom celebrating with his bride.

Stretch out thy borders to the left and to the right;
Give honor to Adonai in Whom we delight—
The Messiah is coming to gladden our sight,
And we shall rejoice in pleasant fulfillment.

In some communities the congregation rises and faces the doorway in order to greet the Sabbath Bride. In addition, we bow and then turn back to the front of the room, to acknowledge her entrance.

Enter in peace, O crown of your husband. Enter in gladness, enter in joy. Come to the people that keeps its faith. Enter, O bride! Enter, O bride!

Shiru l'Adonai Psalm 98 שירו ליי

O sing unto God a new song; for God has done marvelous things: God's right hand, and God's holy arm, have wrought salvation for God. Adonai has made known God's salvation: God's righteousness was revealed in the sight of the nations. God has remembered lovingkindness and faithfulness toward the house of Israel: all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God. Shout for joy unto God, all the earth; break forth into exultation, and sing praises. Sing praises unto God with the harp; with the harp and the voice of melody. With trumpets and the sound of the horn shout for joy before the Sovereign, Adonai. Let the sea roar and the fullness thereof, the world, and they that dwell therein. Let the floods clap their hands, let the mountains exult together, (Reader) before God, for God comes to judge the earth: God will judge the world with righteousness, and the peoples with equity.

Mizmor, shiru l’Adonai shir chadash, ki nifla-ot asah, hoshi-ah lo y'mino uz'roa kod'sho. Hodi-a Adonai y'shuato, l'einei hagoyim gilah tzidkato. Zachar chasdo ve-emunato l'veit yisra-eil, rau chol afsei aretz, eit y'shuat Eloheinu. Hariu l’Adonai kol ha-aretz, pitzchu v'ran'nu v'zameiru. Zam'ru l’Adonai b'chinor, b'chinor v'kol zimrah. Bachatzotz'rot v'kol shofar, hariu lifnei hamelech Adonai. Yiram hayam um'lo-o, teiveil v'yosh'vei vah. N'harot yimchau chaf, yachad harim y'raneinu. Lifnei Adonai ki va lishpot ha-aretz, yishpot teiveil b'tzedek, v'amim b'meisharim.

Mizmor Shir Psalm 92 מזמור שיר

It is a good thing to give thanks unto God, and to sing praises unto your Name, O Most High: to declare your lovingkindness in the morning, and your faithfulness every night, with an instrument of ten strings and with a harp, with solemn music upon the lyre. For you, Adonai, have made me rejoice through your work: I will exult in the works of your hands. How great are your works, Adonai: your thoughts are very deep. A brutish man knows it not, neither does a fool understand this: when the wicked sprang up as the grass, and all the workers of iniquity flourished, it was that they might be destroyed for ever. But you, Adonai, are on high forevermore. For your enemies, O God, for your enemies shall perish; all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered. But my strength you have exalted, like that of the wild-ox: I am anointed with fresh oil. My eye also has seen the defeat of my enemies; my ears have heard the doom of those that rose up against me, doers of evil. (Reader) The righteous shall spring up like a palm-tree and grow tall like a cedar in Lebanon. Planted in the house of God, they shall blossom in the courts of our God. They shall still shoot forth in old age; they shall be full of sap and green: to declare that Adonai is upright; God is my Rock, and there is no unrighteousness in God.

All:

Let God’s great name be blessed forever and for all eternity.

May the name of the Holy One be blessed, praised and glorified, exalted, extolled and honored, magnified and lauded: yet, we remember that God exists well beyond any the blessings and hymns, praises and consolations that we say here on earth; and let us say, Amen.

Blessed are You, Adonai our God, Sovereign of the universe whose word brings on the evening twilight. With wisdom You open the gates of the heavens, and with understanding make the ages pass and the seasons cycle. You arrange the stars across the sky, according to Your will. You create day and night; You roll away the light from before the darkness, and the darkness from before the light; You make the day pass and bring on the night, separating day from night. (Reader) You are a living and enduring God, may You reign over us for ever and ever. Blessed are You, Adonai our God, who brings on the evening twilight.

You have loved Your people Israel with everlasting love; Torah and mitzvot You have taught us. Therefore, O Adonai our God, when we lie down and when we rise up we will meditate on Your commandments. We will rejoice in the words of Your Torah and mitzvot forever; for they are our life and the sustenance of our days; we will meditate on them day and night.(Reader) And may You never deprive us of Your love. Blessed are You, Adonai our God, who loves Your people Israel.

And God spoke unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them a fringe upon the corners of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of each corner a cord of blue: and it shall be unto you for a fringe, that you may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of God, and do them; and that you go not about after your own heart and your own eyes, after which you go astray: that you may remember and do all my commandments, and be holy unto your God. I am Adonai your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am Adonai your God.

Vayomer Adonai el mosheh leimor. Dabeir el b'nei yisra-eil v'amarta aleihem, v'asu lahem tzitzit al kanfei vigdeihem l'dorotam, v'nat'nu al tzitzit hakanaf p'til t'cheilet.

L'ma-an tizk'ru va-asitem et kol mitzvotay, vihyitem k'doshim leiloheichem. Ani Adonai eloheichem, asher hotzeiti etchem mei-eretz mitzrayim, lihyot lachem leilohim, ani Adonai eloheichem.

וַיֹּאמֶר | יְיָ | אֶל מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר. דַּבֵּר | אֶל בְּנֵי | יִשְׂרָאֵל וְאָמַרְתָּ אֲלֵהֶם, וְעָשׂוּ לָהֶם צִיצִת עַל כַּנְפֵי בִגְדֵיהֶם לְדֹרֹתָם, וְנָתְנוּ | עַל צִיצִת הַכָּנָף פְּתִיל תְּכֵלֶת. וְהָיָה לָכֶם לְצִיצִת, וּרְאִיתֶם | אֹתוֹ וּזְכַרְתֶּם | אֶת כָּל מִצְוֹת | יְיָ, וַעֲשִׂיתֶם | אֹתָם, וְלֹא תָתוּרוּ | אַחֲרֵי לְבַבְכֶם וְאַחֲרֵי | עֵינֵיכֶם, אֲשֶׁר אַתֶּם זֹנִים | אַחֲרֵיהֶם. לְמַעַן תִּזְכְּרוּ וַעֲשִׂיתֶם | אֶת כָּל מִצְוֹתָי, וִהְיִיתֶם קְדֹשִׁים לֵאלֹהֵיכֶם. אֲנִי יְיָ | אֱלֹהֵיכֶם, אֲשֶׁר הוֹצֵאתִי | אֶתְכֶם | מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרַיִם, לִהְיוֹת לָכֶם לֵאלֹהִים, אֲנִי | יְיָ | אֱלֹהֵיכֶם.

Mi Chamochah מי כמכה

Who is like You, Adonai, among all the gods? Who is like You, majestic in holiness, awesome in splendor, doing wonders?
Your children beheld Your sovereign power, as You cleaved the sea before Moses: they exclaimed, this is my god! Adonai shall reign for ever and ever! (Reader) For our God delivered Jacob and redeemed our people from the hand of stronger opponents. Blessed are You, Adonai, our God, who has redeemed Your people Israel.

V'Sham'ru ושמרו

The children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, observing it throughout all generations, as an everlasting covenant. It is a sign between Me and the children of Israel forever, that in six days Adonai made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day ceased from work and rested.

וְשָׁמְרוּ בְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל אֶת הַשַּׁבָּת, לַעֲשׂוֹת אֶת הַשַּׁבָּת לְדֹרֹתָם בְּרִית עוֹלָם. בֵּינִי וּבֵין בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל אוֹת הִיא לְעוֹלָם, כִּי שֵֽׁשֶׁת יָמִים עָשָׂה יְיָ אֶת הַשָּׁמַֽיִם וְאֶת הָאָֽרֶץ, וּבַיּוֹם הַשְּׁבִיעִי שָׁבַת וַיִּנָּפַשׁ.

The Amidah עמידה

Adonai S'fatai Tiftach אדני שפתי תפתח

Rise for the Amidah.

In some communities the entire Amidah is read silently by each individual and then repeated out loud by the reader or cantor. In other communities the introduction and first two paragraphs are sung out loud by the entire congregation and the remainder is said silently. You may be seated when you finish your silent Amidah prayers.

At the start of the Amidah, it is customary to take three steps backward, then three steps forward and remain standing with your feet together through the entire Amidah. This is meant to remind us that we are standing in the presence of God, and should enter the spiritual realm with respect and reverence.

Adonai, open my lips, and my mouth will declare Your praise.

Adonay s'fatai tiftach ufi yagid t'hilatecha.

אֲדֹנָי שְׂפָתַי תִּפְתָּח וּפִי יַגִּיד תְּהִלָּתֶֽךָ.

Avot v'Imahot אבות ואמהות

An alternative prayer to the Traditional "Avot" paragraph - this includes the matriarchs.

In some communities the first paragraph of the Amidah begins with a bow towards the Torah.

Blessed are You, Adonai our God and God of our ancestors: Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, (and some communities may add: Sarah, Rebecca, Leah, and Rachel.) The great, mighty and revered God, the most high God, who bestows lovingkindness, and is Master over all things; who remembers the pious deeds of the patriarchs (And some communities may add): and matriarchs, and in love will redeem us for their sake. O Ruler, Helper, Savior and Shield. Blessed are You, Adonai the Shield of Abraham (and Sarah).

Baruch atah Adonai Eloheinu veilohei avoteinu v’imoteinu, elohei avraham, elohei yitzchak, veilohei ya-akov, (elohei sara, elohei rivka, elohei leia, veilohei rachel,) ha-eil hagadol hagibor v'hanora, eil elyon, gomeil chasadim tovim, v'koneih hakol, v'zocheir chasdei avot v’imahot, umeivi goeil livnei v'neihem, l'ma-an sh'mo b'ahavah.

G'vurot גבורות

You, O God, are mighty for ever, you revive the dead, you are might to save.

[From the Sabbath after Simchat Torah until the First Day of Passover, say:
You cause the wind to blow and the rain to fall.]

You sustain the living with lovingkindness, revive the dead with great mercy, support the falling, heal the sick, free the bound, and keep your faith to them that sleep in the dust. Who is like you, God of mighty acts, and who resembles thee, O Adonai, who orders death and restores life, and causes salvation to spring forth?

[On the Sabbath of Repentance say:—
Who is like your, God of mercy, who in mercy remembers your creatures for life?]

Yea, faithful are you to revive the dead. Blessed are you, O God, who revives the dead.

You are holy and Your name is holy. Holy are those who praise You everyday. Blessed are You, Adonai, the holy God.

Silent Prayer or Elohai N'tzor אלהי נצור

(In some communities, the prayer leader says: We continue with a silent Prayer, or, you may use the prayer below for your silent prayer.)

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable before you, O God, my Rock and my Redeemer.

O my God! guard my tongue from evil and my lips from speaking guile; and to such as curse me let my soul be dumb, yea, let my soul be unto all as the dust. Open my heart to your Torah, and let my soul pursue thy commandments. If any design evil against me, speedily make their counsel of no effect, and frustrate their designs. Do it for the sake of your Name, do it for the sake of your power, do it for the sake of your holiness, do it for the sake of your Torah. In order that your beloved ones may be delivered, O save by your power, and answer me. Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable before your, O God, my Rock and my Redeemer. God who makes peace in high places, may Gpd make peace for us and for all Israel, and say ye, Amen.

May it be your will, Adonai our God and God of our ancestors , that the temple be speedily rebuilt in our days, and grant our portion in your Torah. And there we will serve your with awe, as in the days of old, and as in ancient years. Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto God, as in the days of old, and as in ancient years.

וַיְכֻלּוּ הַשָּׁמַֽיִם וְהָאָֽרֶץ וְכָל צְבָאָם. וַיְכַל אֱלֹהִים בַּיּוֹם הַשְּׁבִיעִי מְלַאכְתּוֹ אֲשֶׁר עָשָׂה, וַיִּשְׁבֹּת בַּיּוֹם הַשְּׁבִיעִי, מִכָּל מְלַאכְתּוֹ אֲשֶׁר עָשָׂה. וַיְבָֽרֶךְ אֱלֹהִים אֶת יוֹם הַשְּׁבִיעִי וַיְקַדֵּשׁ אֹתוֹ, כִּי בוֹ שָׁבַת מִכָּל מְלַאכְתּוֹ, אֲשֶר בָּרָא אֱלֹהִים לַעֲשׂוֹת.

Magen Avot v'Imahot מגן אבות ואמהות

Blessed are You, Adonai our God and God of our fathers and mothers, God of Abraham, God of Isaac, and God of Jacob, God of Sara, God of Rebecca, God of Leah, and God of Rachel, the great, mighty and revered God, the most High God, Master of heaven and earth.

God’s words were a shield to our ancestors. Our holy God, like which nothing can compare, gives rest to us--God’s people--on this holy Sabbath day, because God took pleasure in us and granted us rest. We will serve Adonai with reverence and awe, and daily and constantly we will give thanks through our blessings. It is to God alone our thanksgivings are due, the Sovereign of peace, who hallows the Sabbath and blesses the seventh day, and in holiness gives rest to a people content with delight, in remembrance of the creation.

Aleinu עלינו

It is our duty to praise the God of all things, to ascribe greatness to God who formed the world in the beginning; since God has not made us like the nations of other lands, and has not placed us like other families of the earth; since God has not assigned unto us a portion as unto them, nor a lot as unto all their multitude. For we bend the knee and offer worship and thanks before the supreme Sovereign of rulers, the Holy One, blessed be God, who stretched forth the heavens and laid the foundations of the earth, the seat of whose glory is in the heavens above, and the abode of whose might is in the loftiest heights. God is our God; there is none else: in truth God is our Sovereign; there is none besides God; as it is written in the Torah, And you shall know this day, and lay it to your heart, that Adonai is God in heaven above and upon the earth beneath: there is none else.

As it is written in Your Torah, “Adonai shall reign forever and ever.” And it is said, “Adonai shall be ruler over all the Earth: in that day, Adonai shall be One and God’s name shall be One.”

Mourner's Kaddish קדיש יתום

In some congregations, only those in mourning or observing a yartzheit stand and recite the Mourner’s Kaddish. However, particularly since the Holocaust, some congregations have developed the practice of everyone present reciting the Kaddish on behalf of those who have no one left to say Kaddish for them. Therefore, each individual should stand or sit as is their personal custom.

Magnified and sanctified is God’s great name in the world created according to divine will. May God’s majesty reign during your lifetime and throughout your days, and during the life of all the house of Israel, speedily and soon, and let us say, Amen.

Let God’s great Name be blessed forever and for all eternity.

Blessed, praised and glorified, exalted, extolled and honored, magnified and lauded be the Name of the Holy One, though God reigns high above all the blessings and hymns, praises and consolations, which are uttered in this world; and let us say: Amen.

May there be abundant peace from heaven, and life for us and for all Israel; and let us say, Amen.

May the one who makes peace in high places, make peace for us and for all Israel; and let us say, Amen.

Closing Songs

Adon Olam אדון עולם

You are the Eternal God who ruled before the creation. At the time You’re will directly determined what occurred, You were already ruling.

And when all else has failed, You will still reign majestically. You were, You are, You will be in glory.

You are only One. You do not rely upon or compare with any other. You exist without beginning or end. You know power that cannot be seen or experienced elsewhere.

You are my God. You are my Redeemer; my Rock when I am distressed; my confidence; my protection; my aide when I call on You.

I place my soul in Your hands and trust You with it night and day. I also entrust You with my body. When I have Adonai, I shall never fear.

Adon olam asher malach,
b'terem kol yetzir nivrah.
L'eit na'sah b'cheftzo kol,
Azai melech sh'mo nikrah.

V'acharei kichlot hakol,
l'vado yimloch nora.
V'hu hayah, v'hu hoveh,
v'hu yihyeh, b'tifarah.

V'hu echad v'ein sheini,
l'hamshil lo l'hachbirah.
B'li reishit b'li tachlit,
v'lo ha-oz v'hamisrah.

V'hu eili v'chai goali,
v'tzur chevli b'eit tzarah.
V'hu nisi umanos li,
m'nat kosi b'yom ekra.

B'yado afkid ruchi,
b'eir ishan v'a-irah.
V'im ruchi giviyati,
Adonai li v'lo ira.

אֲדוֹן עוֹלָם אֲשֶׁר מָלַךְ, בְּטֶֽרֶם כָּל יְצִיר נִבְרָא. לְעֵת נַעֲשָׂה בְחֶפְצוֹ כֹּל, אֲזַי מֶֽלֶךְ שְׁמוֹ נִקְרָא.

וְאַחֲרֵי כִּכְלוֹת הַכֹּל,
לְבַדּוֹ יִמְלוֹךְ נוֹרָא.
וְהוּא הָיָה, וְהוּא הֹוֶה,
וְהוּא יִהְיֶה, בְּתִפְאָרָה.

וְהוּא אֶחָד וְאֵין שֵׁנִי,
לְהַמְשִׁיל לוֹ לְהַחְבִּֽירָה.
בְּלִי רֵאשִׁית בְּלִי תַכְלִית,
וְלוֹ הָעֹז וְהַמִּשְׂרָה.

וְהוּא אֵלִי וְחַי גֹּאֲלִי,
וְצוּר חֶבְלִי בְּעֵת צָרָה.
וְהוּא נִסִּי וּמָנוֹס לִי,
מְנָת כּוֹסִי בְּיוֹם אֶקְרָא.

בְּיָדוֹ אַפְקִיד רוּחִי,
בְּעֵת אִישַׁן וְאָעִֽירָה.
וְעִם רוּחִי גְּוִיָּתִי,
יְיָ לִי וְלֹא אִירָא.

Yigdal יגדל

We praise, exalt, and adore the living God! God was, God is, God will be evermore! God is unique in the unity of One: eternal, inconceivable is God.

No form, or shape even compares with the incorporeal One, blessed God. God was at creation. The Eternal One saw no beginning in heaven, or earth, but instead knows only a timeless existence absent a birth.

No prophet ever yet has filled the place of Moses, who beheld God face to face. Through him (the faithful in God’s house) God gave the law of truth to Israel.

This Judge will not alter, will not change for any other through time’s utmost range. God knows and heeds the secret thoughts of humanity: God saw the end before there even was a beginning. With love and grace does God bless the righteous; God treats the wicked appropriately.

Yigdal elohim chai v'yishtabach, nimtza, v'ein eit el m'tziuto. Echad v'ein yachid k'yichudo, nelam, v'gam ein sof l'achduto.

Ein lo d'mut haguf v'eino guf, lo na-aroch eilav k'dushato. Kadmon l'chol davar ashar nivra, rishon v'ein reishit l'reishito.

Hino adon olam l'chol notzar, yoreh g'dulato umalchuto. Shefa n'vuato n'tano, el anshei s'gulato v'tifarto.

Lo kam b'yisra-eil k'mosheh od, navi umabit et t'munato. Torat emet natan l'amo eil, al yad n'vio ne-eman beito.

Lo yachalif ha-eil v'lo yamir dato, l'olamim, l'zulato. Tzofeh v'yodei-a s'tareinu, mabit l'sof davar b'kadmato. Gomeil l'ish chesed k'mifalo, notein l'rasha ra k'rishato.

יִגְדַּל אֱלֹהִים חַי וְיִשְׁתַּבַּח, נִמְצָא, וְאֵין עֵת אֶל מְצִיאוּתוֹ. אֶחָד וְאֵין יָחִיד כְּיִחוּדוֹ, נֶעְלָם, וְגַם אֵין סוֹף לְאַחְדּוּתוֹ.

אֵין לוֹ דְמוּת הַגּוּף וְאֵינוֹ גוּף, לֹא נַעֲרוֹךְ אֵלָיו קְדֻשָּׁתוֹ. קַדְמוֹן לְכָל דָּבָר אֲשָׁר נִבְרָא, רִאשׁוֹן וְאֵין רֵאשִׁית לְרֵאשִׁיתוֹ.

הִנּוֹ אֲדוֹן עוֹלָם לְכָל נוֹצָר, יוֹרֶה גְדֻלָּתוֹ וּמַלְכוּתוֹ. שֶֽׁפַע נְבוּאָתוֹ נְתָנוֹ, אֶל אַנְשֵׁי סְגֻלָּתוֹ וְתִפְאַרְתּוֹ.

לֹא קָם בְּיִשְׂרָאֵל כְּמֹשֶׁה עוֹד, נָבִיא וּמַבִּיט אֶת תְּמוּנָתוֹ. תּוֹרַת אֱמֶת נָתַן לְעַמּוֹ אֵל, עַל יַד נְבִיאוֹ נֶאֱמַן בֵּיתוֹ.

לֹא יַחֲלִיף הָאֵל וְלֹא יָמִיר דָּתוֹ, לְעוֹלָמִים, לְזוּלָתוֹ. צוֹפֶה וְיוֹדֵֽעַ סְתָרֵֽינוּ, מַבִּיט לְסוֹף דָּבָר בְּקַדְמָתוֹ. גּוֹמֵל לְאִישׁ חֶֽסֶד כְּמִפְעָלוֹ, נוֹתֵן לְרָשָׁע רָע כְּרִשְׁעָתוֹ.

יִשְׁלַח לְקֵץ הַיָּמִין מְשִׁיחֵֽנוּ, לִפְדּוֹת מְחַכֵּי קֵץ יְשׁוּעָתוֹ. מֵתִים יְחַיֶּה אֵל בְּרֹב חַסְדּוֹ, בָּרוּךְ עֲדֵי עַד שֵׁם תְּהִלָּתוֹ.
