The Words


Dror yikra l'ven im bat
V'yintsorchem kmo vavat
Ne'im shimchem v'lo yushbat
Sh'vu venuchu b'yom Shabbat

A day of freedom he shall proclaim
For the son and the daughter
He shall protect them as his beloved
Your names are beautiful, they shall always endure
Sit and rest on the Sabbath day
