KI ESHMERA SHABBAT 
MECHOL HASHABAT 

Ki Eshmera Shabbat, E-l Yishmreini, ot he l'olmei ad beino uveini.

Asur m'tzo cheifehtz, 'ahsot drakhim, gam mildabeir bo, divrei tz'rachim, divrei s'chorah af divrei m'lakhim, Ehgeh b'torat E-l utchakmeini.

Ki Eshmera Shabbat, E-l Yishmreini, ot he l'olmei ad beino uveini.

Bo ehmtzah tamid, nefesh l'nafshi, Hinei l'dor rishon, natan qdoshi, mofeit b'teit lechem, mishneh bashishi, Kakhah bakhol shishi yakhpil mzoni.

Ki Eshmera Shabbat, E-l Yishmreini, ot he l'olmei ad beino uveini.

Rashum b'dat haE-l, chok ehl sganav, bo l'rokh lechem, panim b'fanav, 'al kein lhit'anot bo, 'al pi n'vonav asur, l'vad miyom kipur, 'avoni.

Ki Eshmera Shabbat, E-l Yishmreini, ot he l'olmei ad beino uveini.

Hu yom m'khubad hu, yom ta'anugim, lechem v'yayin tov, basar v'dagim, hamitab'lim bo, achor nsogim, ki yom simachot, hu utsamcheini.

Ki Eshmera Shabbat, E-l Yishmreini, ot he l'olmei ad beino uveini.

Meicheil m'lakhah bo, sofo lakh'rit, 'al kein akhabes bo, libi k'vorit, v'ehtpal'lah ehl E-l, 'arvit v'shacharit, musaf v'gam min'cha, hu ya'aneini.

Ki Eshmera Shabbat, E-l Yishmreini, ot he l'olmei ad beino uveini.

BECAUSE I SHALL KEEP THE SABBATH 
THE DANCE OF THE SABBATH 

Because I guard the Sabbath, G-d guards me. It is a sign for eternity between Him and me.

It is forbidden to seek to do regular things,
Discussing only of what is nessicary,
not words of business, not even words of politics.
I study the Torah, and G-d makes me wise.

Because I guard the Sabbath, G-d guards me. It is a sign for eternity between Him and me.

On [Shabbat], I always find myself and my soul,
Behold, for the first generation he gave it's holiness
From the miraculous giving of bread, the double loaves, on Friday
Thus on every Friday he doubles my portion.

Because I guard the Sabbath, G-d guards me. It is a sign for eternity between Him and me.

It is written in G-d's Torah, a portion to his priests
For the table, the show bread is on it for him,
Therefore, to make a fast on [Shabbat] is forbidden in accordance with his sages.
Only on the day of atonement do I fast.

Because I guard the Sabbath, G-d guards me. It is a sign for eternity between Him and me.

It is a day of honor, it is a day of pleasure,
Good bread and good wine, Meat and Fish,
Mourners who are made to grieve on [Shabbat], cease
Because it is a day of joy, and I am made joyful.

Because I guard the Sabbath, G-d guards me. It is a sign for eternity between Him and me.

He who labors on [Shabbat], destroy him to his end.
Therefore I wash my heart like the covenant,
And I pray to G-d, Night and Morning,
The Additional prayer and also in the Afternoon, he answers me.

Because I guard the Sabbath, G-d guards me. It is a sign for eternity between Him and me.
