Sheva Brakhot for Two Men

By Orrin Wolpert

 

 

1 Blessed is the Lord our God, Ruler of the universe, Creator of the fruit of the vine.

Blessed is the Lord our God, Ruler of the universe, for creating all things in Your glory.

3 Blessed is the Lord our God, Ruler of the universe, who gives life to every human being.

Blessed is the Lord our God, Ruler of the universe, who made us in Your image, to live, love and perpetuate life. Blessed is the Lord our God, who gives life to every being.

5 May Zion rejoice as her children are restored to her in joy. Blessed is the Lord our God, who causes Zion to rejoice in her children.

6 Grant perfect joy to these loving companions, as You did in the beginning for Your creatures in the Garden of Eden. Blessed is the Lord our God, who grants the joy of loving companions.

7 Blessed is the Lord our God, Ruler of the universe, who created joy and gladness, lover and friend, mirth, song, delight and rejoicing, love and harmony, peace and friendship. O, Lord, our God, may there always be heard in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem voices of joy and gladness, voices of lover and friend, the jubilant voices of those joined in
marriage under the canopy, the voices of young people feasting and singing. Blessed is the Lord our God, who causes grooms to rejoice beneath their huppah.
