Umipnei Khatoeinu Part 1
But on account of our sins we were exiled from our land, and removed far from our country, and we are unable to go up in order to appear and prostrate ourselves before thee, and to fulfill our obligations in thy chosen house, that great and holy temple which was called by thy name, because of the hand that hath been stretched out against thy sanctuary. May it be thy will, O Lord our God and God of our fathers, merciful King, that thou mayest again in thine abundant compassion have mercy upon us and upon thy sanctuary, and mayest speedily rebuild it and magnify its glory.
Ovinu Malkeinu Part 2
Our Father, our King, do thou speediiy make the glory of thy kingdom manifest upon us; shine forth and exalt thyself upon us in the sight of all the living, bring our
scattered ones among the nations near unto thee, and gather our dispersed from the ends of the earth. Lead us with exultation into Zion thy city, and into Jerusalem the place of thy sanctuary with everlasting joy; and there we will prepare before thee the offerings that are obligatory for us, the continual offerings according to their order and the additional offerings according to their enactment.
1. Our God and God of our fathers
Grant dew to favor thy land;
Make us blessed with rejoicing,
With plenty of grain and wine;
Restore thy beloved land with dew.
2.Grant dew for a good year, crowned
With splendid fruit cf the land;
Zion now left like a lone booth
Take her in thy hand like a crown.
3.Let dew fall on the blessed land;
Bless us with the gift of heaven;
In the darkness let a light dawn
For Israel who follows thee.
4. Let our barns be filled with grain;
Renew our days as of old;
O God, uplift us by thy grace,
Make us like a watered garden.
5. Bless our sustenance with dew;
Let no ill befall our flocks;
Bestow thy favor on the people
Whom thou didst lead like a flock.
And to Jerusalem, thy city return in mercy, and dwell therein, as thou hast spoken; rebuild it soon in our days as an everlasting building, and speedily set up therein the throne of David. Blessed art thou, O Lord, who rebuildest Jerusalem
Thy fame, like thy name, is hallowed. Thou art slow to anger and easy to pacify. Thou hast no desire for anyone to die, but that he turn from his evil way and live.
Thou dost wait for him until his dying day; if he repents, thou dost readily accept him. Thou art men’s Creator and knowest their impulse; they are but flesh and blood. Man comes from dust and ends in dust; he wins his bread at the risk of his life. He is like the potsherd that breaks, the grass that withers, the flower that fades, the shadow that passes, the cloud that vanishes, the breeze that blows the dust that floats, the dream that flies away.
All believe that He is the faithful God. He inquires into most hidden secrets. All believe that He hardly gets angry; He is merciful and extends mercy
All believe that He is the righteous Judge. He is perfect and kind to the blameless.
Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but unto Thy name give glory, for Thy loving kindness and for Thy truth’s sake. Wherefor should the nations say where then is
their God? But our God is in the heavens, He doeth whatsoever He pleaseth. Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands. They have mouths but they speak not; eyes have they, but they see not. They have ears, but they hear not; noses have they, but they smell not. As for their hands, they touch not; as for their feet, they walk not; they give no sound through their throat. They that make them shall be like unto them; yea, every one that trusteth in them. O Israel, trust thou in the Lord; He is their help and their shield. O house of Aaron, trust in the Lord: He is their help and their shield. Ye that fear the Lord, trust in the Lord: He is their help and their shield.
Our God and God of our fathers, bless us with the three-fold blessing of thy Law written by the hand of Moses thy servant, which was spoken by Aaron and his sons, the priests, Thy holy people, as it is said, The Lord bless thee, and keep thee: the Lord make his face to shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: the Lord turn his face unto thee, and give thee peace.
