My soul longs for the candle and the spices.
If only you would pour me a cup of wine for Havdalah.
O angels on high, pave a way for me,
clear the path for the bewildered [daughter of Zion]
and open the gates that I may enter.
My heart yearning,
I shall lift up my eyes to the Lord,
who provides for my needs day and night.
From the treasures of your goodness,
give me the minimum I need,
for your goodness has no end nor limit.
Rejuvenate my joy, my bread and my blessing,
Remove all sorrow, pain and darkness.
Now the days of activity begin once again
May they be renewed in peace and in goodness.
