The Prayer

My L-rd YHWH Adonai Elohim, open my lips, and my mouth shall declare Your praise.

Bend Knees at “Blessed”; bow are “You”; Straighten at “L-rd our G‑d”:

Blessed are You, L-rd our G‑d and G‑d of our fathers, G‑d of Abraham, G‑d of Isaac and G‑d of Jacob, the great, mighty and awesome G‑d, exalted G‑d, who bestows bountiful kindness, who creates all things, who remembers the piety of the Patriarchs, and who, in love, brings a redeemer to their children’s children, for the sake of His Name.

Remember us for life, King who desires life; inscribe us in the Book of Life, for Your sake, O living G‑d.

Bend Knees at “Blessed”; bow are “You”; Straighten at “L-rd our G‑d”:

O King, (You are) a helper, a savior and a shield. Blessed are You L-rd, Shield of Abraham.

You are mighty forever, my L-rd; You resurrect the dead; You are powerful to save.

You causes the dew to descend. You causes the wind to blow and the rain to fall.

You sustains the living with loving kindness, resurrects the dead with great mercy, supports the falling, heals the sick, releases the bound, and fulfills His trust to those who sleep in the dust. Who is like You, mighty One! And who can be compared to You, King, who brings death and restores life, and causes deliverance to spring forth!

Who is like You, merciful Father, who in compassion remembers His creatures for life. You are trustworthy to revive the dead. Blessed are You L-rd, who revives the dead.

We will hallow and adore You as the sweet words of the assembly of the holy Seraphim who thrice repeat “holy” unto You, as it is written by Your prophet: And they call one to another and Say, (Cong. and Chazzan:) “Holy, holy, holy is the L-rd of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory.” (Chazzan:) Those facing them offer praise and say, (Cong and Chazzan:) “Blessed be the glory of the L-rd from its place.” (Chazzan:) And in Your holy Scriptures it is written thus: (Cong. and Chazzan:) The L-rd shall reign forever; your G‑d, O Zion, throughout all generations. Praise the L-rd.
