ברוך אתה ה’ מגן אברהם
BLESSED ARE YOU HASHEM, SHIELD OF AVROHOM
“Fear not Avrom, I am your shield” (Breishis 15:1). We are the holy Nation of Hashem, the beloved children of Avrohom – “Fear not Yisroel – אנכי מגן לך”.
אתה גבור לעולם ה’
YOU ARE MIGHTY FOREVER HASHEM
We recognize Your Might and therefore Your Kindliness and Your Glory forever. The sun, the rain – You, Hashem, alone are the Mighty source of all the forever Kindly phenomena in Your Kingdom.
מחיה מתים אתה
THE REVIVER OF THE DEAD [IS YOU]
With Your might You even grant life to the completely lifeless. We see this with every newborn baby that You create, as well as each morning when You lovingly awaken us from our lifeless slumber.
GREAT TO SAVE
All of Your Greatness and Might is dedicated solely for one purpose – “to save” – for the purpose of kindliness.
