Lyrics

When we daven in Shemone Esrei
Birkas kehunah the Kohanim say
These are the words that Aaron used When he first blessed the Jews

Yevarechecho Hashem veyishmerecho
Yoer Hashem ponov eilech vichuneko
Yiso Hashem ponov eilecho veyosem lecho sholom
The bracha for life, the answer to our prayers
For peace in the world everywhere

Yevarechecho Hashem the bracha of long life
We pray our days be free from strife
The more time that we have to live
More time for mitzvos we have to give

Yevarechecho Hashem veyishmerecho
Yoer Hashem ponov eilech vichuneko
Yiso Hashem ponov eilecho veyosem lecho sholom
The bracha for life, the answer to our prayers
For peace in the world everywhere

Yiso Hashem in our tefillah we’re appealing
Hashem understand our words and feelings
Veyosem lecho sholom, a brocho of peace
We pray the troubles of the world will cease

Yevarechecho Hashem veyishmerecho
Yoer Hashem ponov eilech vichuneko
Yiso Hashem ponov eilecho veyosem lecho sholom
The bracha for life, the answer to our prayers
For peace in the world everywhere
