Shalom alekhem ohave hashabbat
Ohave shabbat shalom
Y'ridat hashemesh meviah lanu shabbat

Shabbat k'var hagia hayom

Boakhem l'shalom ohave hasholom
Ohave bnai adam
M'yisrael ad artsenu
Shalom al kol haolam

Y'vorakh bab'riut hazakuk lab'riut
M'nukhat shabbat tavi refua
Shalvat hashabbat tavi lanu briut
Laguf venefesh trufa

Ts'etkhem l'hofesh beyom simkha v'oneg
Bayom sheshovtim meavoda
Meavodatenu nishbot im yakirenu
Avot banim im kol hamishpakha

Welcome, you lovers of the Sabbath
Sabbath lovers, Shalom!
The setting of the sun brings us Sabbath,
Sabbath has already reached us here.

Your coming be in peace, you lovers of peace,
Lovers of humankind,  
From Israel to our land,  
Let there be peace all over the world.

Be blessed with health, whoever is in need of health.
May Sabbath rest bring cure.
May Sabbath peace bring us health,
Body and soul a cure.

As you go out to freedom on this happy, joyous day,
On the day that we rest from work,
From our work we'll rest with our loved ones:
Parents, children, and all the mishpakha.
