A-don o-lam, a-sher ma-lach, b'teh-rem kol y'tzir niv-ra. L'et na'asah b'cheftzo kol azai melech sh'mo nikra. Adon olam.

V'acharei kichlot hakol l'vado yimloch nora. Adon olam.
V'hu hayah, v'hu hoveh, v'hu yihyeh b'tifarah. Adon olam.

(Chorus)

V'hu echad v'ein sheni l'hamishil lo l'hachbirah. Adon olam. B'li reishi b'li tachlit, v'lo haoz v'hamisra. Adon olam.

(Chorus)

V'hu eili v'chai goali
v'tsur chevli b'eit tsrah. Adon olam. V'hu nisi umanos li,
m'nat kosi b'yom ekrah. Adon olam.

(Chorus)

B'yado afkid ruchi
b'et ishan v'airah. Adon olam. V'im ruchi g'viati
Adonai li v'lo irah. Adon olam.
אֲדוֹן עוֹלָם אֲשֶׁר מָלַךְ,
בְּטֶרֶם כָּל יְצִיר נִבְרָא.
לְעֵת נַעֲשָׂה בְחֶפְצוֹ כֹּל,
אֲזַי מֶלֶךְ שְׁמוֹ נִקְרָא.

וְאַחֲרֵי כִּכְלוֹת הַכֹּל,
לְבַדּוֹ יִמְלוֹךְ נוֹרָא.
וְהוּא הָיָה, וְהוּא הֹוֶה,
וְהוּא יִהְיֶה, בְּתִפְאָרָה.

וְהוּא אֶחָד וְאֵין שֵׁנִי,
לְהַמְשִׁיל לוֹ לְהַחְבִּירָה.
בְּלִי רֵאשִׁית בְּלִי תַכְלִית,
וְלוֹ הָעֹז וְהַמִּשְׂרָה.

וְהוּא אֵלִי וְחַי גֹּאֲלִי,
וְצוּר חֶבְלִי בְּעֵת צָרָה.
וְהוּא נִסִּי וּמָנוֹס לִי,
מְנָת כּוֹסִי בְּיוֹם אֶקְרָא.

בְּיָדוֹ אַפְקִיד רוּחִי,
בְּעֵת אִישַׁן וְאָעִירָה.
וְעִם רוּחִי גְּוִיָּתִי,
יְיָ לִי וְלֹא אִירָא.

Translation:

You are the Eternal God, who reigned before any being had been created; when all was done according​ to Your will, already then you were Sovereign​. And after all has ceased to be, still will You reign in solitary majesty; You were, You are,You will be in glory. And You are One.
