Yigdal Elohim khai v’yish-tabakh, nimtza v’eyn yet el m’tzi-uto.
Ekhad v’eyn yakhid k’yi-khudo, ne-lam v’gam eyn sof l’akh-duto.
Eyn lo d’mut ha-guf v’eyno guf, lo na-arokh eylav k’dushato.
Kadmon l’khol davar asher niv-ra, rishon v’eyn reyshit l’reyshito.
Hino adon olam v’khol notzar, yoreh g’dulatou-mal-khuto.
She-fa n’vu-ato n’tano, el an-shey s’gulato v’tif-arto.
Lo kam b’yisrael k’moshe od, navi u-mabit et t’munato.
Torat emet natan l’amo Eyl, al yad n’vi-o ne-eman beyto.
Lo yakha-lif ha-Eyl v’lo yamir dato, l’olamim l’zulato.
Tzo-feh v’yo-dey-a s’ta-reynu, ma-bit l’sof davar b’kad-mato.
Gomeyl l’ish khesed k’mif-alo, noteyn l’rasha ra k’rish-ato.
Yish-lakh l’keytz yamin m’shi-kheynu, lifdot m’khakey keytz y’shu-ato.
Meytim y’kha-yeh Eyl b’rov khasdo, barukh adey ad sheym t’hilato.
