LECHA DODI (2) 
SHAMOR VEZACHOR & KABBALAT SHABBAT DANCE 

Lechah dodi, likrat kalah
penei shabat nekabelah

Shamor vezachor bedibur echad

hashem echad ush'mo echad
leshem uletif'eret velitehilah

Lechah dodi...

Likrat shabat lechu venelchah

sof ma'aseh bamach'shavah techilah

Lechah dodi...

Mik'dash melech ir meluchah

rav lach shevet be'emek habacha
ve'hu yachamol alaich chem'lah

Lechah dodi...

Hitna'ari me'afar kumi
lib'shi big'dei tif'artech ami
al yad ben Yishai beit halach'mi

Lechah dodi...

Hitoreri, hitoreri,

Lecha dodi...

Lo tevoshi ve'lo tikal'mi

venivnetah ir al tilah.

Lecha dodi...

Vehayu lim'shisah shosaich,
verachaku kol miv'laich,

kimesos chatan al kalah.

Lecha dodi...

Yamin usmol tif'rotzi,

al yad ish bein partzi,
venis'mechah venagilah.

Lecha dodi...

Boi beshalom ateret ba'alah,

toch emunei am segulah,
boi kalah, boi, kalah;
toch emunei am segulah,
boi kalah, shabat malkah.

Lecha dodi...

COME MY BELOVED 
GUARD AND REMEMBER / RECEPTION OF THE SABBATH 

Come my lover to welcome the Shabat (referred to as the bride)
We will welcome the Shabat
(x2)

Guard and remember in a single utterance
let us hear the special kind
God is one and his name is one
for his name for glory and praise

Come my lover...

Let's greet the Shabat
as it is the source of blessing
it is spread over from encient times
every deed is resulted after a thought first

Come my lover...

King's temple, kingdom city
Come out of the rebellion
it is enough to sit in valley of cry
he will have mercy on you

Come my lover...

Get up from the ash and shake it off your self
wear your glorious cloths, my nation
next to ben yishai (meaning king david) and beit halachmi
my soul will be saved

Come my lover...

Wake up wake up
You have a guest get up
Wake up wake up and sing a song
You saw the glory of God

Come my lover...

You will not be ashamed or disgraced
why are you bent over and why do you moan softly
the poor will find refuge in you
and you will be rebuild again

Lecha dodi...

Vehayu lim'shisah shosaich,
verachaku kol miv'laich,
yasis alaich Elohaich,
kimesos chatan al kalah.

Lecha dodi...

Yamin usmol tif'rotzi,
ve'et hashem ta'aritzi,
al yad ish bein partzi,
venis'mechah venagilah.

Come my beloved...

Enter in peace o crown of her husband
Even in gladness and good cheer
Among the faithful of the treasured nation
Enter o bride, enter o bride.
Among the faithful of the treasured nation
Enter o bride, the Sabbath Queen.

Come my beloved...
