Esa einai el heharim,
Me’ayin yavo ezri?
Ezri me’im Adonai,
Oseh shamayim va’aretz.
1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the mountains: from whence shall my help come?
2 My help cometh from the LORD, who made heaven and earth.
Lai, Lai, Lai…
Al yiten lamot raglekha
Al yanum shomrekha
Hineh lo yanum v’lo yiyshan
3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved; He that keepeth thee will not slumber.
4 Behold, He that keepeth Israel doth neither slumber nor sleep.
Lai lai lai…
Yomam hashemesh lo yakeka
Lai, lai, lai…
5 The LORD is thy keeper; the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.
6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
Adonai yishmorkha mikol ra
Yishmor et nafshekha
Adonai yishmor tse’atkha
Uvo’ekha me’ata vad olam
7 The LORD shall keep thee from all evil; He shall keep thy soul.
8 The LORD shall guard thy going out and thy coming in, from this time forth and for ever.
Lai, lai, lai…
