Bilvavi Mishkan Evneh l'hadar k'vodo, uv'mishkan mizbeach asim l'karnei hodo, ulner tamid ekach li es esh ha'akeidah, ulkorban akriv lo es nafshi, es nafshi hayechida.
בִּלְבָבִי מִשְׁכַּן אָבְנֶה לַהֲדַר כְּבוֹדוֹ, וּבַמּשְׁכַּן מִזְבֵּֽחַ אָשִׂים. לְקַרְנֵי הוֹדוִֹ וּלְנֵר תָּמִיד אֶקַּח לִי אֶת אֵשׁ הָעֲקֵידָה, וּלְקָרְבָּן אַקְרִיב לוֹ אֶת נַפְשִי, אֶת נַפשִי הַיְחִידָה.

Translation:

I will build a tabernacl​​e in my heart to glorify God's honor. And I will place an altar in the tabernacl​​e dedicated​ to God's divine rays of splendor.​ And for the eternal flame I will take upon myself the fire that fueled the Binding of Isaac. And as a sacrifice​ I will offer God my soul, my unique soul.
