Everlasting love You offered Your people Israel
by teaching us Torah and mitzvot, laws and precepts.
Therefore, Adonai our God,
when we lie down and when we rise up,
we will meditate on Your laws and Your commandments.
We will rejoice in Your Torah for ever.
Day and night we will reflect on them
for they are our life and doing them lengthens our days.
Never remove Your love from us.
Praise to You, Adonai, who loves Your people Israel.
