Hebrew Prayer and Translation

אֳהַבַת עוֹלָם בֵּית יִשְׂרָאֵל עַמְּךָ אָהַבְתָּ. תּוֹרָה וּמִצְוֹת חֻקִּים וּמִשְׁפָּתִים אוֹתָנוּ לִמַּדְתָּ. עַל כֵּן יְיָ אֱלֹהֵינוּ בְּשָׁכְבְּנוּ וּבְקוּמֵנוּ נָשִׂיחַ בְּחֻקֶּךָ וְנִשְׁמַח בְּדִבְרֵי תוֹרָתְךָ וּבְמִצְוֹתֶיךָ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד. כִּי הֵם חַיֵּינוּ וְאוֹרֶךְ יָמֵינוּ וּבָהֶם נֶהְגֶּה יוֹמָם וָלָיְלָה. וְאַהֲבָתְךָ אַל תָּסוּר מִמֶּנּוּ לְעוֹלָמִים! בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ אוֹהֵב עַמּוֹ יִשְׂרָאֵל.

Endless is Your love for Your people Israel. You have taught us Torah and its mitzvot, laws and judgement. Therefore, O God, when we lie down and when we rise up we shall speak of Your commandments and rejoice in Your Torah and mitzvot forever. Day and night we will reflect on them. They are our life and the length of our days. Your love shall never depart from our hearts. Blessed are You, Eternal God who loves Your people Israel.
