SH’MA KOLEINU

Hear our voice, Adonai, our God, be kind, sympathize with us.
Willingly and lovingly, accept our prayer.

Turn us toward You, Adonai, and we will return to You;
Make our days seem fresh, as they once were.

Do not cast us away from You;
Do not take Your holy presence from us.

Do not cast us away as we grow old;
Do not desert us as our life ends.

Do not abandon us, Adonai, our God,
Do not distance yourself from us.

Give us hope; Be our help and comfort. Hear our words, Adonai, and consider our innermost thoughts.
May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable to You, Adonai, my rock and redeemer.
