אֵין כָּמוֹךָ בָאֱלֹהִים אֲדֹנָי וְאֵין כְּמַעֲשֶׂיךָ
מַלְכוּתְךָ מַלְכוּת כָּל עוֹלָמִים וּמֶמְשַׁלְתְּךָ בְּכָל דּוֹר וָדוֹר
.ה’ מֶלֶךְ. ה’ מָלָךְ. ה’ יִמְלֹךְ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד
ה’ עֹז לְעַמּוֹ יִתֵּן. ה’ יְבָרֵךְ אֶת עַמּוֹ בַשָּׁלוֹם

אַב הָרַחֲמִים, הֵיטִיבָה בִרְצוֹנְךָ אֶת צִיּוֹן. תִּבְנֶה חוֹמוֹת יְרוּשָׁלָיִם: כִּי בְךָ לְבַד בָּטָחְנוּ, מֶלֶךְ אֵל רָם וְנִשָּׂא אֲדוֹן עוֹלָמִים

Ein kamocha va’elohim Adonai v’ein k’ma’asecha

Malchutecha malchut kol olamim umemshaltecha b’chol dor va’dor

Adonai melech. Adonai malach. Adonai yimloch l’olam va’ed.

Adonai oz l’amo yitein. Adonai yivarech et amo vashalom.

Av Harachamim. Heitivah vir’tzonecha et tziyon. Tivneh chomot yerushalayim: ki v’cha l’vad batachnu. Melech el ram v’nisa, adon olamim.

There is none like you among the gods, Adonai, and nothing like your creation.

Your kingdom is eternal, and your reign extends to every generation.

Adonai is king. Adonai was king. Adonai will be king forever and ever.

Adonai will give strength to God’s people. Adonai will bless God’s people with peace.

Parent of mercy, find favor with Zion. Rebuild the walls of Jerusalem: For we have faith in You, King, God who is exalted and lifted high, master forever.
