You sustain life through love, giving life to all (reviving the dead) through great
compassion, supporting the fallen, healing the sick, freeing the captive, keeping faith
with those who sleep in the dust. Who is like You, Source of mighty acts? Who
resembles You, a Sovereign who takes and gives life, causing deliverance to spring up
and faithfully giving life to all (reviving that which is dead)?

who mercifully remembers Your creatures for life?
Blessed are You, Adonai, who gives life to all (who revives the dead).
