lyrics

L’dor va-dor nagid godlekha u-l’netzah
n’tzahim k’dushat’kha nakdish.
V’shivhakha Eloheinu mi-pinu lo yamush
l’olam va-ed, ki El melekh gadol v’kadosh
atah.
Barukh atah Adonai ha-El ha-kadosh.

From one generation to another we will
declare Your greatness,
and forever sanctify You with words of
holiness.
Your praise will never leave our lips,
for You are God and Sovereign, great and
holy.
