We request, firstly, that Your חסד be upon us to give us in ‘abundance’ beyond our basic needs. We also intend to request that You bestow upon the world a spirit of חסד and kindheartedness among men.
Even when we are unworthy of Your blessing, we request that You continue to shower us with Your great kindliness, fulfilling our requests ‘with mercy’.
עלינו ועל כל ישראל עמך
UPON US AND UPON ALL OF YISROEL YOUR PEOPLE
Upon ourselves and those of our own kehillah, as well as upon all of “Your people” Yisroel, every man, woman and child without exception, for they are loyal to You and Your Torah forever.
BLESS US, OUR FATHER
Bless us with Your unlimited blessings of love, for You are our Father, the One Who created us, the source of all our blessing, and the One Who truly loves us – truly, our Father.
