Keter yitnu lakh
hamòné mala im kevutzé matah.
Kevodo male olam,
mesharetav sho'alim zeh azeh:
ayeh mekom kevodo?

Mimekomo yifen le'amo
ham'yachadim et shemo
'erev vavoker tamid bechol yom:

Echad elohenu, hu 'avinu, hu malkenu,
hu moshi'enu,
hu yashmi'enu berachama vshenit
le'enei kol chai:

Ani adonai elohemchem.
Yimloch adonai le'olam, elohayich Tziyon ledor vador,
haleluya, haleluya, haleluya.

English.png English translation

Your crown of holiness is acclaimed by throngs of angels on highand by Your people assembled below.
His glory pervades the universe; His ministering angels inquire of one another:
Where is the place of glory?
From His heavenly abode may He turn in mercy to the people
who twice daily proclaim in love the unity of His name,
One is our God;
He is our Father,
our Sovereign, and our Deliverer.
In His mercy He will again make known in the presence
of all the living that He will be your God.
"I am the Lord your God."
The Lord shall reign forever;
your God, O Zion, shall be Sovereign to all generations.
