Shacharit Morning Prayers

Mah Tovu מה טבו

“Mah Tovu” is a song meant to express your gratitude for being able to join in prayer. It is a sign of reverence and appreciation for the house of prayer.

How good are your tents, O Jacob, your dwelling places, O Israel! As for me, in the abundance of Your love, I will enter Your house: I will worship toward Your holy temple out of reverence for You. Adonai, I love residing in Your house, and the place where Your glory dwells. I will worship and bow down: I will bend my knee before Adonai, my Maker. May my prayer to You, Adonai, be acceptable: God, in the abundance of Your lovingkindness, answer me with the truth of Your salvation.

Mah tovu ohalecha ya-akov, mishk'notecha yisra-eil. Va-ani b'rov chasd'cha avo veitecha, eshtachaveh el heichol kodsh'cha b'yiratecha. Adonai ahavti m'on beitecha, um'kom mishkan k'vodecha. Va-ani eshtachaveh v'echra-ah, evr'chah lifnei Adonai osi. Va-ani t'filati l'cha Adonai, eit ratzon, elohim b'rav chasdecha, aneini be-emet yishecha.

מַה טּֽבוּ אֹהָלֶיךָ יַעֲקֹב, מִשְׁכְּנֹתֶיךָ יִשְׂרָאֵל. וַאֲנִי בְּרֹב חַסְדְּךָ אָבוֹא בֵיתֶךָ, אֶשְׁתַּחֲוֶה אֶל הֵיכַל קָדְשְׁךָ בְּיִרְאָתֶךָ. יְיָ אָהַבְתִּי מְעוֹן בֵּיתֶךָ, וּמְקוֹם מִשְׁכַּן כְּבוֹדֶךָ. וַאֲנִי אֶשְׁתַּחֲוֶה וְאֶכְרָעָה, אֶבְרְכָה לִפְנֵי יְיָ עֹשִׂי. וַאֲנִי תְפִלָּתִי לְךָ יְיָ, עֵת רָצוֹן, אֱלֹהִים בְּרָב חַסְדֶּךָ, עֲנֵֽנִי בֶּאֱמֶת יִשְׁעֶךָ.

Blessing Upon Arising אשר יצר

Blessed are You, Adonai our God, Ruler of the universe, who has formed humankind in wisdom and created in humankind many passages and vessels. It is well known before Your glorious throne, that if but one of these be opened, or one of those be closed, it would be impossible to exist and stand before You. Blessed are You, Adonai, who is the wondrous healer of all flesh.

Baruch atah Adonai eloheinu melech ha-olam, asher yatzar et ha-adam b'choch'mah, uvara vo n'kavim n'kavim, chalulim chalulim. Galuy v'yadua lifnei chisei ch'vodecha, sheim yipatei-ach echad meihem, o yisateim echad meihem, i efshar l'hitkayeim v'la-amod l'fanecha. Baruch atah Adonai, rofei chol basar umafli la-asot.

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, אֲשֶׁר יָצַר אֶת הָאָדָם בְּחָכְמָה, וּבָרָא בוֹ נְקָבִים נְקָבִים, חֲלוּלִים חֲלוּלִים. גָּלוּי וְיָדֽוּעַ לִפְנֵי כִסֵּא כְבוֹדֶךָ, שֶׁאִם יִפָּתֵֽחַ אֶחָד מֵהֶם, אוֹ יִסָּתֵם אֶחָד מֵהֶם, אִי אֶפְשַׁר לְהִתְקַיֵּם וְלַעֲמוֹד לְפָנֶיךָ. בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, רוֹפֵא כָל בָּשָׂר וּמַפְלִיא לַעֲשׂוֹת.

Pesukei D'zimrah (Verses of Praise)

Ashrei Psalm 145 אשרי

Those who dwell in Your house are happy and will be forever praising You. Happy are those who are part of Your people. Happy is the people whose God is the Sovereign.

Ashrei yosh'vei veitecha, od y'hal'lucha selah. Ashrei ha-am shekachah lo, ashrei ha-am she-adonai elohav.

אַשְׁרֵי יוֹשְׁבֵי בֵיתֶךָ, עוֹד יְהַלְלֽוּךָ סֶּלָה. אַשְׁרֵי הָעָם שֶׁכָּכָה לּוֹ, אַשְׁרֵי הָעָם שֶׁיְיָ אֱלֹהָיו.

I will praise You, my God and Sovereign and will bless Your Name forever and ever. Every day I will bless You and praise Your Name forever and ever.

T'hilah l'david, aromimcha elohai hamelech, va-avar'chah shimcha l'olam va-ed. B'chol yom avar'cheka, va-ahal'lah shimcha l'olam va-ed.

תְּהִלָּה לְדָוִד, אֲרוֹמִמְךָ אֱלוֹהַי הַמֶּלֶךְ, וַאֲבָרְכָה שִׁמְךָ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד. בְּכָל יוֹם אֲבָרְכֶךָּ, וַאֲהַלְלָה שִׁמְךָ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד.

Adonai is great and deserving of excessive praise. God’s greatness lasts throughout the generations. One generation shall describe Your holy acts to another, and shall declare Your acts mighty.

Gadol Adonai um'hulal m'od, v'ligdulato ein cheiker. Dor l'dor y'shabach ma-asecha, ug'vurotecha yagidu.

גָּדוֹל יְיָ וּמְהֻלָּל מְאֹד, וְלִגְדֻלָּתוֹ אֵין חֵקֶר. דּוֹר לְדוֹר יְשַׁבַּח מַעֲשֶׂיךָ, וּגְבוּרֹתֶיךָ יַגִּידוּ.

I will meditate on Your majestic glory, and Your marvelous deeds.

Hadar k'vod hodecha, v'divrei nifl'otecha asichah.

הֲדַר כְּבוֹד הוֹדֶךָ, וְדִבְרֵי נִפְלְאֹתֶיךָ אָשִׂיחָה.

People will speak of the might of Your tremendous acts and will recount Your greatness. They will speak of Your famous goodness, and will exult in Your righteousness.

Ve-ezuz nor'otecha yomeiru, ug'dulat'cha asap'renah. Zecher rav tuv'cha yabiu, v'tzidkat'cha y'raneinu.

וֶעֱזוּז נוֹרְאוֹתֶיךָ יֹאמֵרוּ, וּגְדֻלָּתְךָ אֲסַפְּרֶנָּה. זֶכֶר רַב טוּבְךָ יַבִּיעוּ, וְצִדְקָתְךָ יְרַנֵּנוּ.

Adonai is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and full of great lovingkindness. Adonai is good to all and exudes tender mercy through God’s holy work.

Chanun v'rachum Adonai, erech apayim ug'dol chased. Tov Adonai lakol, v'rachamav al kol ma-asav.

חַנּוּן וְרַחוּם יְיָ, אֶרֶךְ אַפַּיִם וּגְדָל חָסֶד. טוֹב יְיָ לַכֹּל, וְרַחֲמָיו עַל כָּל מַעֲשָׂיו.

All Your works will give thanks to You, O God, and Your loved ones will bless You.

Yoducha Adonai kol ma-asecha, vachasidecha y'var'chuchah

יוֹדֽוּךָ יְיָ כָּל מַעֲשֶׂיךָ, וַחֲסִידֶיךָ יְבָרְכֽוּכָה.

They will speak of Your glory and Your power to make known to the world God’s mighty acts, and the majestic glory of the divine kingdom.

K'vod amalchut'cha yomeiru, ug'vurat'cha y'dabeiru. L'hodi-a livnei ha-adam g'vurotav, uch'vod hadar malchuto.

כְּבוֹד מַלְכוּתְךָ יֹאמֵרוּ, וּגְבוּרָתְךָ יְדַבֵּרוּ. לְהוֹדִיעַ לִבְנֵי הָאָדָם גְּבוּרֹתָיו, וּכְבוֹד הֲדַר מַלְכוּתוֹ.

Your sovereignty is everlasting. Your reign endures throughout all generations.

Malchut'cha malchut kol olamim, umemshalt'cha b'chol dor vador.

מַלְכוּתְךָ מַלְכוּת כָּל עוֹלָמִים, וּמֶמְשַׁלְתְּךָ בְּכָל דֹּר וָדֹר.

Adonai supports all who fall and raises up all those who are bowed down. The eyes of all remain fixed upon You and You give them their food when the time is right.

Someich Adonai l'chol hanof'lim, v'zokeif l'chol hak'fufim. Einei chol eilecha y'sabeiru, v'atah notein lahem et ach'lam b'ito.

סוֹמֵךְ יְיָ לְכָל הַנֹּפְלִים, וְזוֹקֵף לְכָל הַכְּפוּפִים. עֵינֵי כֹל אֵלֶיךָ יְשַׂבֵּרוּ, וְאַתָּה נוֹתֵן לָהֶם אֶת אָכְלָם בְּעִתּוֹ.

You open Your hand and spread Your favor over all living creatures. Adonai is righteous in every way and works only through love.

Potei-ach et yadecha, umasbi-a l'chol chai ratzon. Tzadik Adonai b'chol d'rachav, v'chasid b'chol ma-asav.

פּוֹתֵחַ אֶת יָדֶךָ, וּמַשְׂבִּיעַ לְכָל חַי רָצוֹן. צַדִּיק יְיָ בְּכָל דְּרָכָיו, וְחָסִיד בְּכָל מַעֲשָׂיו.

Adonai is near to all who call in truth.

Karov Adonai l'chol kor'av, l'chol asher yikrauhu ve-emet.

קָרוֹב יְיָ לְכָל קֹרְאָיו, לְכֹל אֲשֶׁר יִקְרָאֻהוּ בֶאֱמֶת.

Adonai’s reverent followers will have their desires fulfilled. God will hear their cries and will save them. All who love Adonai will be protected, but all the wicked will be destroyed.

R'tzon y'rei-av ya-aseh, v'et shavatam yishma v'yoshi-eim. Shomeir Adonai et kol ohavav, v'eit kol har'shaim yashmid.

רְצוֹן יְרֵאָיו יַעֲשֶׂה, וְאֶת שַׁוְעָתָם יִשְׁמַע וְיוֹשִיעֵם. שׁוֹמֵר יְיָ אֶת כָּל אֹהֲבָיו, וְאֵת כָּל הָרְשָׁעִים יַשְׁמִיד.

(Reader) My mouth shall express praise for Adonai. May all of humanity learn to bless God’s holy Name forever and ever. We will bless Adonai from this time forth and forevermore. Praise God!

T'hilat Adonai y'daber pi, vivareich kol basar sheim kod'sho l'olam va-ed.
Va-anachnu n'vareich yah, mei-atah v'ad olam, hal'luyah.

(Reader) תְּהִלַּת יְיָ יְדַבֶּר פִּי, וִיבָרֵךְ כָּל בָּשָׂר שֵׁם קָדְשׁוֹ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד. וַאֲנַחְנוּ נְבָרֵךְ יָהּ, מֵעַתָּה וְעַד עוֹלָם, הַלְלוּיָהּ.

Chatzi Kaddish חצי קדיש

The Chazzan recites the Chatzi Kaddish, with the community responding amen throughout.

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.

Recited by Chazzan and Community in unison.

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

Y'hei sh'meih raba m'varach l'alam ul'al'mei al'maya.

יְהֵא שְׁמֵהּ רַבָּא מְבָרַךְ לְעָלַם וּלְעָלְמֵי עָלְמַיָּא.

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 (exceedingly beyond, in fact) the blessings and hymns, praises and consolations that we say here on earth; and let us say, Amen.

Yitbarach v'yishtabach v'yitpa-ar v'yitromam v'yitnasei v'yithadar v'yitaleh v'yithalal sh'meih d'kudsha b'rich hu, l'eila min kol birchata v'shirata tushb'chata v'nechemata, da-amiran b'al'ma, v'imru amein.

Sh'ma and Its Blessings

Ahavah Rabbah אהבה רבה

You have loved us with abounding love, Adonai our God. You have shown us great and overflowing tenderness. O our Master, our Ruler, for our ancestors’ sake, who trusted in You, and whom You taught the statutes of life, be also gracious to us and teach us. O Merciful One, ever compassionate, have mercy on us. Put it into our hearts to understand and to discern, to mark, learn and teach, to heed, to do and to fulfill in love all the words of instruction in Your Torah. Enlighten our eyes in Your Torah, and let our hearts cling to Your commandments, and unify our hearts. Let us love and revere Your Name, so that we will never be put to shame. Because we have trusted in Your holy, great and revered Name, we shall rejoice and be glad in Your saving power. Bring us in peace from the four corners of the earth, and make us go upright to our land, for (Reader) You are a God who works salvation. You have chosen us from all peoples and tongues, and have brought us near to Your great Name forever in faithfulness, that we might in love give thanks to You and proclaim Your unity. Blessed are You, Adonai, who has chosen Your people Israel in love.

God Who blessed our forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Moses and Aaron, David and Solomon - may God bless and heal the sick person (name) son/daughter of (mother's name) because (name w/ mother's name) will contribute to charity on his/her behalf. In reward for this, may the Holy One be filled with compassion for him/her to restore his/her health, to heal, strengthen and revivify him/her. And may God send him a complete recovery from heaven for his/her 248 organs and 365 blood vessels, among the other sick people of Israel, a recovery of the body and spirit (though Shabbat/the Festival does not let us cry out, may a recovery come quickly) swiftly and soon. And let us say, Amen.

Ashrei אשרי

I will extol you, my God, O Sovereign; and I will bless your Name for ever and ever. Every day will I bless you; and I will praise your Name for ever and ever. Great is Adonai, and exceedingly to be praised: and God's greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall laud your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts. On the majestic glory of your splendor, and on your marvelous deeds, will I meditate. And people shall speak of the might of your tremendous acts; and I will recount your greatness. They shall pour forth the fame of your great goodness, and shall exult in your righteousness. Adonai is gracious and merciful; slow to anger and of great lovingkindness. Adonai is good to all; and God's tender mercies are over all God's works. All your works shall give thanks unto you, Adonai; and your loving ones shall bless thee. They shall speak of the glory of your kingdom, and talk of your power; to make known to the human beings God's mighty acts, and the majestic glory of God's kingdom. Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures throughout all generations. Adonai upholds all that fall, and raises up all those that are bowed down. The eyes of all wait upon you; and you give them their food in due season. You open your hand, and satisfy every living thing with favor. Adonai is righteous in all ways, and loving in all works. Adonai is close unto all them that call upon God, to all that call upon God in truth. Adonai will fulfill the desire of them that revere God; God also will hear their cry, and will save them. Adonai guards all those that love God; but all the wicked will God destroy.(Reader) My mouth shall speak of the praise of Adonai; and let all flesh bless God's holy Name for ever and ever.

But we will bless Adonai from this time forth and for evermore. Praise Adonai.

אַשְׁרֵי יוֹשְׁבֵי בֵיתֶךָ, עוֹד יְהַלְלֽוּךָ סֶּלָה. אַשְׁרֵי הָעָם שֶׁכָּכָה לּוֹ, אַשְׁרֵי הָעָם שֶׁיְיָ אֱלֹהָיו. תְּהִלָּה לְדָוִד, אֲרוֹמִמְךָ אֱלוֹהַי הַמֶּלֶךְ, וַאֲבָרְכָה שִׁמְךָ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד. בְּכָל יוֹם אֲבָרְכֶךָּ, וַאֲהַלְלָה שִׁמְךָ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד. גָּדוֹל יְיָ וּמְהֻלָּל מְאֹד, וְלִגְדֻלָּתוֹ אֵין חֵקֶר. דּוֹר לְדוֹר יְשַׁבַּח מַעֲשֶׂיךָ, וּגְבוּרֹתֶיךָ יַגִּידוּ. הֲדַר כְּבוֹד הוֹדֶךָ, וְדִבְרֵי נִפְלְאֹתֶיךָ אָשִׂיחָה. וֶעֱזוּז נוֹרְאוֹתֶיךָ יֹאמֵרוּ, וּגְדֻלָּתְךָ אֲסַפְּרֶנָּה. זֶכֶר רַב טוּבְךָ יַבִּיעוּ, וְצִדְקָתְךָ יְרַנֵּנוּ. חַנּוּן וְרַחוּם יְיָ, אֶרֶךְ אַפַּֽיִם וּגְדָל חָסֶד. טוֹב יְיָ לַכֹּל, וְרַחֲמָיו עַל כָּל מַעֲשָׂיו. יוֹדֽוּךָ יְיָ כָּל מַעֲשֶׂיךָ, וַחֲסִידֶיךָ יְבָרְכֽוּכָה. כְּבוֹד מַלְכוּתְךָ יֹאמֵרוּ, וּגְבוּרָתְךָ יְדַבֵּרוּ. לְהוֹדִיעַ לִבְנֵי הָאָדָם גְּבוּרֹתָיו, וּכְבוֹד הֲדַר מַלְכוּתוֹ. מַלְכוּתְךָ מַלְכוּת כָּל עוֹלָמִים, וּמֶמְשַׁלְתְּךָ בְּכָל דֹּר וָדֹר. סוֹמֵךְ יְיָ לְכָל הַנֹּפְלִים, וְזוֹקֵף לְכָל הַכְּפוּפִים. עֵינֵי כֹל אֵלֶיךָ יְשַׂבֵּֽרוּ, וְאַתָּה נוֹתֵן לָהֶם אֶת אָכְלָם בְּעִתּוֹ. פּוֹתֵחַ אֶת יָדֶךָ, וּמַשְׂבִּיעַ לְכָל חַי רָצוֹן. צַדִּיק יְיָ בְּכָל דְּרָכָיו, וְחָסִיד בְּכָל מַעֲשָׂיו. קָרוֹב יְיָ לְכָל קֹרְאָיו, לְכֹל אֲשֶׁר יִקְרָאֻהוּ בֶאֱמֶת. רְצוֹן יְרֵאָיו יַעֲשֶׂה, וְאֶת שַׁוְעָתָם יִשְׁמַע וְיוֹשִיעֵם. שׁוֹמֵר יְיָ אֶת כָּל אֹהֲבָיו, וְאֵת כָּל הָרְשָׁעִים יַשְׁמִיד. (Reader) תְּהִלַּת יְיָ יְדַבֶּר פִּי, וִיבָרֵךְ כָּל בָּשָׂר שֵׁם קָדְשׁוֹ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד. וַאֲנַחְנוּ נְבָרֵךְ יָהּ, מֵעַתָּה וְעַד עוֹלָם, הַלְלוּיָהּ.

Chatzi Kaddish חצי קדיש

The Chatzi Kaddish is recited by the Chazzan, with the community responding amen throughout.

Magnified and sanctified be God's great Name in the world which God created according to God's will. May God establish God's kingdom during your life and during your days, and during the life of all the house of Israel, even speedily and at a near time, and say you, Amen.

Let God's great Name be blessed for ever and to all eternity.

Blessed, praised and glorified, exalted, extolled and honored, magnified and lauded be the Name of the Holy One, who should be blessed; though God is high above all the blessings and hymns, praises and consolations, which are uttered in the world; and say you, Amen.

Yitgadal v'yitkadash sh'meih raba. B'al'ma di v'ra chiruteih, v'yamlich malchuteih b'chayeichon uv'yomeichon uv'chayei d'chol beit yisra-eil, ba-agala uvizman kariv, v'imru amein.

Yitbarach v'yishtabach v'yitpa-ar v'yitromam v'yitnasei v'yithadar v'yitaleh v'yithalal sh'meih d'kudsha b'rich hu, l'eila min kol birchata v'shirata tushb'chata v'nechemata, da-amiran b'al'ma, v'imru amein.

יִתְגַּדַּל וְיִתְקַדַּשׁ שְׁמֵהּ רַבָּא. בְּעָלְמָא דִּי בְרָא כִרְעוּתֵהּ, וְיַמְלִיךְ מַלְכוּתֵהּ בְּחַיֵּיכוֹן וּבְיוֹמֵיכוֹן וּבְחַיֵּי דְכָל בֵּית יִשְׂרָאֵל, בַּעֲגָלָא וּבִזְמַן קָרִיב, וְאִמְרוּ אָמֵן.
(Recited by the Chazzan and community in unison)
יְהֵא שְׁמֵהּ רַבָּא מְבָרַךְ לְעָלַם וּלְעָלְמֵי עָלְמַיָּא.
יִתְבָּרַךְ וְיִשְׁתַּבַּח וְיִתְפָּאַר וְיִתְרוֹמַם וְיִתְנַשֵּׂא וְיִתְהַדָּר וְיִתְעַלֶּה וְיִתְהַלָּל שְׁמֵהּ דְּקֻדְשָׁא בְּרִיךְ הוּא, לְעֵֽלָּא מִן כָּל בִּרְכָתָא וְשִׁירָתָא תֻּשְׁבְּחָתָא וְנֶחֱמָתָא, דַּאֲמִירָן בְּעָלְמָא, וְאִמְרוּ אָמֵן.

Closing Prayers

Ain K'Eloheinu אין כאלהינו

There is none like our God, none like Adonai, none like our Sovereign, none like our Redeemer.

Who is like our God, who like Adonai, who like our Sovereign, who like our Saviour?

We will give thanks to our God, we will give thanks to Adonai, we will give thanks to our Sovereign, we will give thanks to our Redeemer.

Blessed be our God, blessed be Adonai, blessed be our Sovereign, blessed be our Redeemer.

You are our God, You are Adonai, You are our Sovereign, You are our Redeemer.

You are the One to whom our ancestors offered spices.

Ein keiloheinu, ein kadoneinu,
ein k'malkeinu, ein k'moshi-einu.

Mi cheiloheinu, mi chadoneinu,
mi ch'malkeinu, mi ch'moshi-einu.

Nodeh leiloheinu, nodeh ladoneinu, nodeh l'malkeinu, nodeh l'moshi-einu.

Baruch eloheinu, baruch adoneinu, baruch malkeinu, baruch moshi-einu.

Atah hu eloheinu, atah hu adoneinu, atah hu malkeinu, atah hu moshi-einu.

Atah hu shehiktiru avoteinu l'fanecha et k'toret hasamim.

אֵין כֵּאלֹהֵינוּ, אֵין כַּאדוֹנֵינוּ, אֵין כְּמַלְכֵּנוּ, אֵין כְּמוֹשִׁיעֵנוּ.

מִי כֵאלֹהֵינוּ, מִי כַאדוֹנֵינוּ,
מִי כְמַלְכֵּנוּ, מִי כְמוֹשִׁיעֵנוּ.

נוֹדֶה לֵאלֹהֵינוּ, נוֹדֶה לַאדוֹנֵינוּ, נוֹדֶה לְמַלְכֵּנוּ, נוֹדֶה לְמוֹשִׁיעֵנוּ.

בָּרוּךְ אֱלֹהֵינוּ, בָּרוּךְ אֲדוֹנֵינוּ, בָּרוּךְ מַלְכֵּנוּ, בָּרוּךְ מוֹשִׁיעֵנוּ.

אַתָּה הוּא אֱלֹהֵינוּ, אַתָּה הוּא אֲדוֹנֵינוּ, אַתָּה הוּא מַלְכֵּנוּ, אַתָּה הוּא מוֹשִׁיעֵנוּ.

אַתָּה הוּא שֶׁהִקְטִירוּ אֲבוֹתֵינוּ לְפָנֶיךָ אֶת קְטֹֽרֶת הַסַּמִּים.

Closing Songs

Adon Olam אדון עולם

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

Adon olam asher malach, b'terem kol y'tzir nivra. L'eit na-asah v'cheftzo kol, azai melech sh'mo nikra.

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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.

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

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

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.

B'yado afkid ruchi, b'eit ishan v'airah. V'im ruchi g'viyati, Adonai li v'lo ira.

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

Salaam! Od Yavo Shalom סאלאם! עוד יבאו שלום

Again peace will be upon us and everyone. Salaam, upon us and upon everyone. Salaam!

Od yavo shalom aleinu v’al kulam.
Salaam, aleinu v’al kol ha’olam!
Salaam! Salaam!

עוֹד יַבוֹא שַׁלוֹם עַלֵינוּ (3x)
וְעַל כּוּלַם.

סַאלַאם, עַלֵינוּ וְעַל כָּל הָעוֹלָם!
סַאלַאם! סַאלַאם! (2x)
