מָה שֶׁאָכַלְנוּ יִהְיֶה לַשֹּׂבַע וּמַה שֶׁשָּׁתִינוּ יִהְיֶה לִרְפוּאָה וּמַה שֶׁהוֹתַרְנוּ יִהְיֶה לִבְרָכָה 

 בְּרִיך רַחֲמָנָא מַלְכָּא     דְעַלְמָא     מָרֵיהּ דְהַאי פִּיתָּא    

 

Mah she-akhalnu yihiyeh l’sova
u-mah she-shatinu yihiyeh lir’fuah
u-mah she-hotarnu yihiyeh liv’rakhah

B’rikh rakhamana, malka de'alma
marey d’hai pita

That which we ate, may it satiate us;
And that which we drank, may it give us good health;
And that which is left over, may we see it as a blessing;

Blessed are You, Source of Mercy, for You are the master of
this bread.
