Praised are You, Adonai our God, Sovereign of the universe,
Creator of light and darkness, who makes peace and fashions all things.
In mercy, You illumine the world and those who live upon it.
In Your goodness You daily renew creation.
How numerous are Your works, Adonai!
In wisdom, You formed them all, filling the earth with Your creatures.
Be praised, Adonai our God, for the excellent work of Your hands,
and for the lights You created, may they glorify You.
Shine a new light upon Zion, that we all may swiftly merit its radiance.
Praised are You, Adonai, Creator of all heavenly lights.
