For a girl:
Y'simech Elohim
k-Sarah, Rivka, Rachel, v-Leah

For a boy:
Y'simcha Elohim
k'Ephraim v'chi Menashe

Yeverechecha adonai ve'yishmereicha.
Ya'er adonai panav eileicha vichuneika.
Yisa adonai panav eileicha ve'yasem lecha shalom.
יְשֲׁמֱֳך אֶלׂהִים
כְּשָׁרָה רִבְקָה רָחֵל וְלֱאָה

יְשֲׁמֵך אֶלׂהִים
כֶּאֶפְרַיִם וְכִמְנָשֶׁה

יְבָרֶכְךָ יהוה וְיִשְׁמְרֶךָ:
יָאֵר יהוה פָּנָיו אֵלֶיךָ וִיחֻנֶּךָּ:
יִשָּׂא יהוה פָּנָיו אֵלֶיךָ וְיָשֵׂם לְךָ שָׁלוֹם:

God make thee as Ephraim and as Manasseh.​
