Praised are You, HaShem,
Our God, King of the Universe,
who has hallowed us via His commandments,
and commanded us
concerning the elevation of hands.

Without interruption, proceed to uncover the challah, make a symbolic small cut in one, lift the loaves, and recite:

Ba-ruch   a-tah   A-do-nai,
E-lo-hei-nu,   Me-lech   Ha-o-lam,
ha-mo-tsi  le-chem  min  ha-a-rets.
Praised are You, HaShem,
Our God, King of the Universe,
who brings forth bread from the earth.

Eat a piece of the cut loaf, dipped in salt. Now the meal begins.

Traditionally, zemirot (Sabbath Table Songs) are sung during the meal. Some of the most popular for Friday night include: M'nucha v'Simcha. Tzur Mishelo is usually sung last, just before the Grace After Meals.

This zemer first appeared in print in 1545. The first words of the first three stanzas form an acrostic for Moshe, but nothing more is known of its author.

Contentment (1) and joy (2),
light (3) for the Jews,
Day of Rest,
Day of Delights.
Those who guard it
and those who remember it (4)
bear witness. (5)
For six [days] (6)
all was made and still endures.

Heaven’s heavens, (7)
earth, and seas,
all the hosts above,
high and exalted,
sea giants, and people,
and mighty beasts (8) --- [all also testify]
that with Creative Power (9), HaShem, [is]
the Molder (10) of the Universe.

[Many melodies use the previous
verse as a recurring chorus]

He it is that spoke [at Sinai]
to His treasured people: (11)
Guard [it] to sanctify [it]
from [its] arrival to [its] departure (12) ---
The Holy Sabbath
day of His delight ---
"For on it rested God
from all his m’lacha." [Genesis 2:2]

Via the command of the Sabbath,
God strengthens you.
Arise! Call out to Him (13)
that He may rush to fortify you.
[Recite] "Nish-mat Kawl Chai" (14)
and also "Na-a-ri-tz’cha" (15)
Eat with joy,
for already you’ve been shown favor.
[c.f., Ecclesiates 9:7]

With double loaves of bread
and [recitation of] "Kiddush Rabbah", (16)
With abundant delicacies
and generous spirit,
They shall merit much good [in this world]
--- those who delight in it --- [and]
with the arrival of the redeemer [i.e., the Messiah,]
for the life of the World To Come.

Translation Notes:

1. the attitude that all one's work is complete.

2. resulting from the physical pleasures of food, drink, relations, and leisure.

3. This could be the light of the candles, which makes a friendly home atmosphere. But the parallelism between this phrase and Esther 8:16 also makes "light" a metaphor for an abundance of goodness. An alternative reading: "Contentment and joy" ARE the "light of the Jews", implying that only when happy can the greatest spiritual light be received. The "light" may also refer to the "light sown for the righteous", visible only during Creation but preserved for the enjoyment of the righteous in the World to Come, emphasizing Shabbat's role as a weekly foretaste of the utopia to come.

4. referring to those who refrain from Sabbath's prohibited acts (as per Deuteronomy 5:12) and to those who perform its positive acts (as per Exodus 20:8). "Remembering it" can also be understood as a reference to reciting kiddush.

5. Our public acknowledgement of God's role in creation (proclaimed by our dedication to Sabbath observance) may constitute God's best evidence.

6. Without the Sabbath's periodic infusion of holiness, Creation couldn't last beyond six consecutive days.

7. Even in the purely spiritual realms there are levels of holiness.

8. The order of items listed in this verse follows the order in which they were created; each day's creative work is mentioned before that of the next.

9. Heaven was created with the letter yud, and earth with the letter hei.

10. Although "tzur" is usually translated as "Rock" (a metaphor for strength and stability), it can also connote "molder" because of its visual similarity (when written in the Hebrew alphabet) to "tza-yar". In many z'mirot, the poet clearly intends to invoke this connotation. In such contexts, "Creator", "Former", or "Molder" may be a better translation.

11. C.f., Exodus 19:5 and Deuteronomy 7:6.

12. The remainder of the song traces the course of the day from beginning to end --- from Friday night through Saturday night --- like a program. The following verses proceed from Creation, to Revelation (equated with the partnership between God and the Jews), to Redemption. Along the way, they recount details of the day's schedule in order: first Kabbalat Shabbat, then Shacharit, then Musaf, then Second Meal, and finally Third Meal and Havdallah (the welcoming of the Messiah).

13. This refers to Kabbalat Shabbat, the Friday evening service that welcomes the Sabbath.

14. a glorious poem of praise that is only inserted into the Shacharit service (the Daily Morning Service) on Sabbaths.

15. the opening words (in Ashkenazic rite) of the Kedushah (a high point) of the Musaf service (the weekly Sabbath service).

16. The Saturday morning kiddush, recited at the The Second Meal.

Psalm 126

The Invitation

If three or more adult male Jews participated in the meal, one of them leads the group and inserts a formal zimun ("invitation") before the Birkat HaMazon (The Grace After Meals).

The leader recites the text in blue; all others recite the text in red.  If ten or more men are present, insert the words in parentheses.

Ra-bo-tai  n'va-reich.
Froynd-n  mir  vill-n  bentch-n.

Y'hi  sheim  A-do-nai  m'vo-rach  mei-a-tah  v'ad   o-lam.

Ba-ruch  (E-lo-hei-nu)  she-a-chal-nu   mi-she-lo  uv-tu-vo  cha-yi-nu.

Ba-ruch  hu  u-va-ruch  sh'mo.

Birkat HaMazon includes four benedictions.   Often, all will sing the first benediction aloud together.   (And when young children are present, it is common to sing all the bentching out loud.)

The first benediction is traditionally attributed to Moses.   It is said in appreciation of sustenance and the divine providential care shown to all creatures:

Ba-ruch  a-tah  A-do-nai, E-lo-hei-nu  Me-lech  Ha-o-lam,
Ha-zan  et  ha-o-lam  ku-lo,  b'tu-vo,

[ Ka-a-mur:  Po-tei-ach  et  ya-de-cha,  u-mas-bi-a   l'chawl^chai ra-tson. ]
Ba-ruch  a-tah  A-do-nai,   ha-zan  et  ha-kol. ( A-mein. )

The second benediction is traditionally attributed to Joshua. It is said in appreciation for The Land of Israel:

No-deh  l'cha
A-do-nai  E-lo-hei-nu,
al  she-hin-chal-ta  la-a-vo-tei-nu

The third benediction is traditionally attributed to King David with later modifications attributed to King Solomon. It is said in appreciation for Jerusalem and the Temple:

The fourth benediction is said in appreciation for divine goodness. It was written by Rabban Gamliel and added during a time of persecution by ancient Rome.

The Grace After Meals concludes with a number of appended petitions and closing sentiments:
