Elokeynu, Vi Elokey Avoteynu,
Elokey Avraham Visarah,
Elokey Yitskhak virivkah,
Elokey Yaakov, Rakhel viLeah,
Hagi eynu lishalom limkhoz kheftseynu,
Vihakhzireynu lishalom liveyteynu,
Enable us to reach our destination safely,
And bring us back to our home in shalom.
Teyn bilibi lishaskil ki kol adam nivra bitsalmekha,
Vihamatsil nefesh akhat k'ilu hitsil olam maley,
Put it into our hearts to understand
That every human being is made in Your image, And that whoever saves one life, it is as if he saved a whole world.
Khanei binah lihavin she'eyn davar yakar meykhayey adam,
Lo ziman, lo kesef, lo kavod, lo nikamah,
Put into us the wisdom to understand
That there is nothing more precious than human life...
Not saving a few minutes,
Not making a bit more money,
Azor na li linhog
Bizihirut – lishmor merkhak,
B'adivut latet zikhut kadimah,
B'aranut – la atzor bizman,
Help me to drive
With care – keeping a safe distance,
With manners – giving the right of way,
With awareness – so as to stop in time.
Teyn bi hagvurah lishlot biyetser hara
Shel kinah vitakhrut, sinah vikhamdanut,
Give me the discipline to control my evil impuse,
That is really what it is –
To control my jealousy, my competitiveness, my anger, and my greed.
Al na tihey takala al yadi,
Vilo etkal befega ra,
May I cause no accident,
And may none befall me.
Lima'an na'avod otkha b'emet,
Ulma'an narbeh kidushat hakhayim ba'olam,
So that we may be able to serve You sincerely,
And so that we may increase the Holiness of life in this world.
Ken yihi ratson. Amen.
So may it be. Amen.
