Jerusalem Oratorio Choir version
Dror Yikra l’ven im bat / V’yintsorchem k’mo vavat
Na’im shimchem velo yushbat
Sh’vu venuchu b’yom Shabbat
D’rosh navi v’ulami Va’ot yesha ase imi
Neta sorek b’toch karmi
She’e shav’at b’nei ami
Elohim ten bamidbar har / Hadas, shita brosh tidhar.
Velamazhir velanizhar
Shlomim ten k’mei nahar.

He will proclaim freedom for all his children
And will keep you as the apple of his eye
Pleasant is your name and will not be destroyed
Repose and rest on the Sabbath day.

Seek my sanctuary and my home.
Give me a sign of deliverance.
Plant a vine in my vineyard.
Look to my people, hear their laments.

Tread the wine-press in Bozrah
And in Babylon that city of might
Crush my enemies in anger and fury
On the day when I cry, hear my voice.

Plant, Oh God, in the mountain waste
Fir and acacia, myrtle and elm
Give those who teach and those who obey
Abundant peace, like the flow of a river.

Repel my enemies, Oh zealous God
Fill their hearts with fear and despair
Then we shall open our mouths
And fill our tongues with Your praise.

Know wisdom, that your soul may live
And it shall be a diadem for your brow
Keep the commandment of your Holy One
Observe the Sabbath, your sacred day.
