Sung in Hebrew
Cause us, O Lord, our God, to retire for the evening in peace and then again to arise unto life, O our King, and spread Your canopy of peace over us. Direct us with Your counsel and save us for the sake of Your name. Be a shield around us. Remove from our midst all enemies, plague, sword, violence, famine, hunger, and sorrow. And also remove evil temptation from all around us, sheltering us in the shadow of Your protecting wings. For indeed You are a gracious and compassionate King. Guard our going and coming, for life and in peace, from now on and always. Spread over us the sheltering canopy of Your peace. You are worshiped, O Lord (He is worshiped, and His name is worshiped), who spreads the canopy of peace over us and over all Your people Israel, and over all Jerusalem. Amen.
