lyrics

לְכָה דוֹדִי לִקְרַאת כַּלָּה
פְּנֵי שַׁבָּת נְקַבְּלָה

שָׁמוֹר וְזָכוֹר בְּדִבּוּר אֶחָד הִשְמִיעָֽנוּ אֵל הַמְּיֻחָד
יְיָ אֶחָד וּשְמוֹ אֶחָד
לְשֵׁם וּלְתִפְאֶֽרֶת וְלִתְהִלָּה
לְכָה דוֹדִי...

לִקְרַאת שַׁבָּת לְכוּ וְנֵלְכָה
כִּי הִיא מְקוֹר הַבְּרָכָה
מֵרֹאשׁ מִקֶּֽדֶם נְסוּכָה
סוֹף מַעֲשֶׂה בְּמַחֲשָׁבָה תְּחִלָּה
לְכָה דוֹדִי...

הִתְעוֹרְרִי הִתְעוֹרְרִי
כִּי בָא אוֹרֵךְ קֽֽוּמִי אֽוֹרִי
עֽוּרִי עֽוּרִי שִׁיר דַבֵּֽרִי
כְּבוֹד יְיָ עָלַֽיִךְ נִגְלָה
לְכָה דוֹדִי...

בּֽוֹאִי בְשָׁלוֹם עֲטֶרֶת בַּעְלָהּ
גַּם בְּשִׂמְחָה וּבְצָהֳלָה
תּוֹךְ אֱמוּנֵי עַם סְגֻּלָּה
בּֽוֹאִי כַלָּה, בּֽוֹאִי כַלָּה
לְכָה דוֹדִי...

Lecha dodi likrat kala, p’nei Shabbat n’kabelah!

Shamor v’zachor b’dibur echad,
Hishmi’anu el ha’meyuchad.
Adonai echad u’shmo echad;
L’shem ul’tiferet v’l’tehila.
Lecha dodi...

Likrat Shabbat l’chu v’nelcha,
Ki hi m’kor ha’bracha.
Me’rosh mi’kedem n’sucha;
Sof ma’aseh b’mach’shava t’chila.
Lecha dodi...

Hit’oreri, hit’oreri,
Ki va orech, kumi uri.
Uri, uri, shir daberi;
K’vod Adonai alai’yich nigla.
Lecha dodi….

Bo’i v’shalom, ateret ba’ala,
Gam b’simcha uv’ tzhala.
Toch emunei am segula;
Bo’i chala, bo’i chala.
Lecha dodi...

Come, by Beloved, to greet the bride; let us welcome the Sabbath

“Observe” and “Remember” in one act of speech, The One and Only God made us hear. The Lord is One is God’s name is One, For renown, for splendor, and for praise.

To greet the Sabbath, come let us go, for blessing, she is the source. From the outset, as of old, ordained: Last in deed, first in thought.

Wake up, wake up, for your light has come: rise, shine! Awake, awake, break out in song, for God’s glory is revealed on you.

Come in peace, O crown of her partner; Come with joy and jubilation, among the faithful of the treasured people. Enter, O bride! Enter, O bride!

(Kabbalat Shabbat service // translation: Koren Siddur)
