CHORUS (2x)
Ma tovu ohalecha Ya'akov,
Mish'k'no'techa Yisrael.
Va'ani b'rov chas'd'cha avo veitecha,
Eshtachaveh el heichal kod-sh'cha b'yiratecha.
CHORUS
Adonai ahavti m'on beitecha, u'm'kom mishkan k'vodecha
Va'ani eshtachaveh v'echra'a, ev'r'cha lifnei Adonai osi.
CHORUS
Va'ani t'filati l'cha, Adonai eit ratzon.
Elohim, b'rov chasdecha, (aneini be'emet yishecha) (2x)
CHORUS
How lovely are your tenst, O Jacob,
Your dwelling places, O Israel,
In your abundan lovingkindness, O God, let me enter Your house,
reverently to worship in Your holy temple.
Adonai, I love Your house, the place where Your glory dwells.
So I would worship with humility, I would seek the blessing in the
presence of God, my Maker.
To You, then, Adonai, does my prayer go forth.
May this be a time of joy and favor.
In Your great love, O God, answer me with Your saving truth
