[Beginning of Kabbalat Shabbat]


Ha-hamah mei-rosh ha-ilanot nistalkah,
Bo·u v’netzei likrat Shabbat ha-malkah.
Hineh hi yoredet ha-k’doshah ha-b’rukhah,
v’imah malakhim, tz’va shalom u-m’nuhah.
Bo·i ha-malkah, bo·i ha-kallah.

The sun has disappeared from the tree-tops;
come, let us go out to welcome the Sabbath,
the queen.
Here, she is descending, the holy, the
and with her are angels – a host of peace
and of rest.
Come, O queen; come, O bride.
