To honor the sacred in the here and now

שמור וזכור בדיבור אחד, השמיענו אל המיוחד
שכינה אחת ושמה אחד, לשם ולתפארת ולתחילה

Expand and contract, two sides of the one
The dance of light and dark, the moon and the sun

לקראת שבת לכו ונלכה, כי היא מקור הברכה

Uri uri shir dabeiri
K’voda Shechina alayich nigla

The time has come to awaken and to shine our stars
Reveal our truths and to be who we are

בואי בשלום עתרת בעלה, גם בשמחה ובצהלה
תוך אמוני עם סגולה, בואי כלה בואי כלה

Toch emunei am segula
Boi chalah boi chalah

Come in peace
May your devotion never cease
May we increase oh precious people joy and freedom and release!
