Lighting the Festival Lights

Before sunset, we light the candles and recite:

Baruch atah Adonai Eloheinu Melech ha'olam, asher kid'shanu b'mitzvo'tav v'tzivanu l'hadlik ner shel Shabat

We paraise You, O Lord our God, Ruler of the world who has made us holy by Your laws and commanded us to light the festival lights.

Bo-ruch A-toh adonai elohaynu melech ho-o-lam she-he-che-yo-nu v'kee-y monu b'hee-gee-yonu Laz-man-hazeh

We praiseYou, O Lord our God, Ruler of the world, who has given us life, cared for us and has helped us to be present at this happy time.
