May the LORD (YHWH) bless you and guard you –
יְבָרֶכְךָ יהוה, וְיִשְׁמְרֶךָ
(“Yebhārēkh-khā Adhōnāy weyishmerēkhā …)
May the LORD make His face shed light upon you and be gracious unto you –
יָאֵר יהוה פָּנָיו אֵלֶיךָ, וִיחֻנֶּךָּ
(“Yāʾēr Adhōnāy pānāw ēlekhā wiḥunnékkā …)
May the LORD lift up His face unto you and give you peace
יִשָּׂא יהוה פָּנָיו אֵלֶיךָ, וְיָשֵׂם לְךָ שָׁלוֹם
(“Yissā Adhōnāy pānāw ēlekhā wiyāsēm lekhā shālōm.)
There is a wonderful version of this sung and composed by Evan Levine.  It has been posted on youtube, HOWEVER, that does not appear to be an authorized copy.  Therefore, do NOT download it, share it, or copy in any manner.  Especially because this is a sacred priestly blessing handed down for thousands of years.  This includes sites on the internet with mp3 downloads.  Here is one cd that his hauntingly beautiful version is on:  NEVER STEAL from God, or His Anointed and Appointed!
