Tov l'hodot la'hashem,
Tov l'hodot la'hashem, ulzamer ulzamer l'shimcha elyon,
Tov l'hodot la'hashem.

l'hagid baboker chasdecha, l'hagid baboker chasdecha, v'emunatcha baleylot, v'emunatcha baleylot,
Tov Tov l'hodot la'hashem.
טוֹב לְהֹדוֹת לַה', וּלְזַמֵּר לְשִׁמְךָ עֶלְיוֹן. לְהַגִּיד בַּבֹּֽקֶר חַסְדֶּֽךָ, וֶאֱמוּנָתְךָ בַּלֵּילוֹת


It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto Thy name, O Most High;
To declare Thy lovingkin​dness in the morning, and Thy faithfuln​ess in the night seasons.
