Sabbath Prayer (from Fiddler on the Roof)

Hebrew Lyrics

May the Lord protect and defend you,
May he always shield you from shame
May you come to be in Yisroel a shining name.
May you be like Ruth and like Esther,
May you be deserving of praise,
Strengthen them Oh Lord, and keep them from the
stranger's ways.

May God bless you and grant you long lives,
(May the Lord fulfill our Sabbath prayer for you)
May God make you good mothers and wives,
(May He send you husbands who will care for you).

May the Lord protect and defend you,
May the Lord preserve you from pain
Favor them Oh Lord, with happiness and peace,
Oh hear our Sabbath prayer, Amen.
