Kah ribon alam v’al’maya
ant hu malka melekh malkhaya.
Ovad g’vur’teikh v’timhaya
sh’far kodamakh l’hahavaya.
Kah ribon alam . . .

Sh’vahin asadeir tsafra v’ramsha
lakh elaha kadisha di v’ra kol nafsha,
irin kadishin uv’nei enasha,
heivat bara, v’ofei sh’maya.
Kah ribon alam . . .

Ravr’vin ov’deikh v’takifin,
makhikh r’maya v’zakif k’fifin.
Lu yihyeh g’var sh’nin alfin
la yei’ol g’vur’teikh b’hushb’naya.
Kah ribon alam . . .

Elaha di leih y’kar ur’vuta,
p’rok yat anakh mipum aryavata.
V’apeik yat amakh migo galuta,
ameikh di v’hart mikol umaya.
Kah ribon alam . . .

L’mikd’sheikh tuv ul’kodesh kudshin,
atar di veih yehedun ruhin v’nafshin.
Vizam’run lakh shirin v’rahashin,
birush’leim karta d’shufraya.
Kah ribon alam . . .
קיָהּ רִבּוֹן עָלַם וְעָלְמַיָּא,
אַנְתְּ הוּא מַלְכָּא מֶֽלֶךְ מַלְכַיָּא,
עוֹבַד גְּבוּרְתֵּךְ וְתִמְהַיָּא,
שְׁפַר קֳדָמָךְ לְהַחֲוָיָּא.

קיָהּ רִבּוֹן עָלַם וְעָלְמַיָּא,
אַנְתְּ הוּא מַלְכָּא מֶֽלֶךְ מַלְכַיָּא.

שְׁבָחִין אֲסַדֵּר צַפְרָא וְרַמְשָׁא,
לָךְ אֱלָהָא קַדִּישָׁא דִּי בְרָא כָּל נַפְשָׁא,
עִירִין קַדִּישִׁין וּבְנֵי אֱנָשָׁא,
חֵיוַת בָּרָא וְעוֹפֵי שְׁמַיָּא.

קיָהּ רִבּוֹן עָלַם וְעָלְמַיָּא,
אַנְתְּ הוּא מַלְכָּא מֶֽלֶךְ מַלְכַיָּא.

רַבְרְבִין עוֹבְדֵיךְ וְתַקִּיפִין,
מָכִיךְ רְמַיָּא וְזַקִּיף כְּפִיפִין,
לוּ יִחְיֶה גְבַר שְׁנִין אַלְפִין,
לָא יֵעוֹל גְּבוּרְתֵּךְ בְּחֻשְׁבְּנַיָּא.

קיָהּ רִבּוֹן עָלַם וְעָלְמַיָּא,
אַנְתְּ הוּא מַלְכָּא מֶֽלֶךְ מַלְכַיָּא.

אֱלָהָא דִּי לֵהּ יְקַר וּרְבוּתָא,
פְּרוֹק יַת עָנָךְ מִפּוּם אַרְיְוָתָא,
וְאַפֵּיק יַת עַמֵּךְ מִגּוֹ גָלוּתָא,
עַמֵּךְ דִּי בְחַרְתְּ מִכָּל אֻמַּיָּא.

קיָהּ רִבּוֹן עָלַם וְעָלְמַיָּא,
אַנְתְּ הוּא מַלְכָּא מֶֽלֶךְ מַלְכַיָּא.

לְמִקְדָּשֵׁךְ תּוּב וּלְקֹֽדֶשׁ קֻדְשִׁין,
אֲתַר דִּי בֵהּ יֶחֱדוּן רוּחִין וְנַפְשִׁין,
וִיזַמְּרוּן לָךְ שִׁירִין וְרַחֲשִׁין,
בִּירוּשְׁלֵם קַרְתָּא דְשׁוּפְרַיָּא.

קיָהּ רִבּוֹן עָלַם וְעָלְמַיָּא,
אַנְתְּ הוּא מַלְכָּא מֶֽלֶךְ מַלְכַיָּא.

Translation:

Gd, Sovereign​ of all the Worlds, You are the Ruler, above all rulers. Your mighty deeds and wonders, it is beautiful​ to declare before You.
I speak your praises both morning and evening, to You, Holy Gd, who created all Life: Sacred spirits and human beings, beasts of the field and birds of the sky.
Great​ and mighty are Your deeds, humbling the proud and raising the humble. Even if one were to live a thousand years, these would not suffice to fathom Your might.
O Gd, to whom glory and greatness​ belong, save Your flock from the lions’ jaws. Bring Your people out of exile, the people which You chose from among all nations.
Retur​n to Your Temple and to the Holy of Holies, the place where spirits and souls can rejoice. They will sing to You songs and melodies in Jerusalem​, city of beauty.
