Birkat Hamazon

נוֹדֶה לְעֵין הַחַיִּים הַזָּנָה אֶת הַכֹּל 

Nodeh l’eyn hakhayim
Hazanah et hakol.

עַל הָאָרֶץ הַטּוֹבָה וְהַרְחָבָה נִשְׁמֹר נָא וְהִיא תְּקַימֵנּוּ

Al ha’aretz hatovah v’har’khavah
Nishmor’na, v’hi t’kay’meynu,

וּנְבַקֵּשׁ מָזוֹן לְהַשְׂבִּיעַ בּוֹ כָּל יוֹשְׁבֵי תֵּבֵל 

Unvakeysh mazon l’hasbi’a bo
Kol yosh’vey teyveyl.
 

Let us acknowledge the source of life,
source of all nourishment.

May we protect the bountiful earth
that it may continue to sustain us,

and let us seek sustenance
for all who dwell in the world.
