Hinei El Yeshuati הנה אל ישועתי

A cup of wine is taken in the right hand, and the following is said:—

Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid: for God the Lord is my strength and song, and God is become my salvation. Therefore with joy shall you draw water out of the wells of salvation. Salvation belongs unto the Lord: your blessing be upon your people. (Selah.) The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. (Selah.) The Jews had light and joy and gladness and honor. (So be it with us.) I will lift the cup of salvation, and call upon the Name of the Lord.

Hineih eil y'shuati, evtach v'lo efchad, ki ozi v'zimrat yah Adonai, vay'hi li lishuah: Ush'avtem mayim b'sason mima-aynei hayshuah: L’Adonai hayshuah al am'cha virchatecha selah: Adonai tz'va-ot imanu misgav lanu elohei ya-akov selah: Adonai tz'va-ot ashrei adam botei-ach bach: Adonai hoshi-ah hamelech ya-aneinu v'yom kor'einu:

Ly'hudim hay'tah orah v'simchah v'sason vikar: Kein tihyeh lanu.
(THIS LINE IS REPEATED AFTER THE SERVICE LEADER BY EVERYONE)


Kos y'shuot esa. Uv'sheim Adonai ekra:

הִנֵּה אֵל יְשׁוּעָתִי, אֶבְטַח וְלֹא אֶפְחָד, כִּי עָזִּי וְזִמְרָת יָהּ יְיָ, וַיְהִי לִי לִישׁוּעָה. וּשְׁאַבְתֶּם מַֽיִם בְּשָׂשׂוֹן, מִמַּעַיְנֵי הַיְשׁוּעָה. לַייָ הַיְשׁוּעָה, עַל עַמְּךָ בִרְכָתֶךָ סֶּלָה. יְיָ צְבָאוֹת עִמָּנוּ, מִשְׂגָּב לָֽנוּ אֱלֹהֵי יַעֲקֹב סֶלָה. יְיָ צְבָאוֹת, אַשְׁרֵי אָדָם בֹּטֵחַ בָּךְ. יְיָ הוֹשִׁיעָה, הַמֶּֽלֶךְ יַעֲנֵנוּ בְיוֹם קָרְאֵנוּ.

לַיְּהוּדִים הָיְתָה אוֹרָה וְשִׂמְחָה וְשָׂשׂוֹן וִיקָר. כֵּן תִּהְיֶה לָּנוּ. (This line is then repeated after the service leader by everyone.)

כּוֹס יְשׁוּעוֹת אֶשָּׂא, וּבְשֵׁם יְיָ אֶקְרָא.

Blessing over the Wine בורא פרי הגפן

With your permission, rabbis and teachers:
Blessed are You, O Lord our God, Ruler of the universe, who creates the fruit of the vine.

Svari maranan v'rabanan v'rabotai:
Baruch atah Adonai, eloheinu melech ha-olam, borei p'ri hagafen.

סַבְרִי מָרָנָן וְרַבָּנָן וְרַבּוֹתַי:
בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, בּוֹרֵא פְּרִי הַגָפֶן.

Blessing over the Spices (B'samim) בורא מיני בשמים

The spice-box is taken, and the following is said:—

Blessed are You, O Lord our God, Ruler of the universe, who creates diverse kinds of spices.

Baruch atah Adonai, eloheinu melech ha-olam, borei minei v'samim.

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶֽלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, בּוֹרֵא מִינֵי בְשָׂמִים.

Blessing over the Candle (Ha'esh) בורא מיני האש

The hands are spread towards the light, and the following is said:—

Blessed are You, O Lord our God, Ruler of the universe, who creates the light of the fire.

Baruch atah Adonai, eloheinu melech ha-olam, borei me'orei ha-aish.

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶֽלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, בּוֹרֵא מְאוֹרֵי הָאֵשׁ.

Hamavdil Bein Kodesh l'Chol המבדיל בין קודש לחול

The cup is again taken in the right hand, and the following is said:—

Blessed are You, O Lord our God, Ruler of the universe, who makes a distinction between sacred and profane, between light and darkness, between the people of Israel and the other nations, between the seventh day and the six working days. Blessed are You, O Lord, who makes a distinction between sacred and profane.

Baruch atah Adonai, eloheinu melech ha-olam, hamavdil bein kodesh l'chol, bein or l'choshech, bein yisra-eil la-amim, bein yom hashvii, l'sheishet y'mei hama-aseh: Baruch atah Adonai, hamavdil bein kodesh l'chol:

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, הַמַּבְדִיל בֵּין קֽדֶשׁ לְחוֹל, בֵּין אוֹר לְחֹֽשֶׁךְ, בֵּין יִשְׂרָאֵל לָעַמִּים, בֵּין יוֹם הַשְּׁבִיעִי לְשֵׁשֶׁת יְמֵי הַמַּעֲשֶׂה. בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, הַמַּבְדִיל בֵּין קֹדֶשׁ לְחוֹל.
