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 מִשְׁכָּן אֶבְנֶה לַהֲדַר כְּבוֹדוֹ,
וּבַמִּשְׁכָּן מִזְבֵּֽחַ אָשִׂים לְקַרְנֵי הוֹדוֹ,
וּלְנֵר תָּמִיד אֶקַּח לִי אֶת–אֵשׁ הָעֲקֵידָה, וּלְקָרְבָּן אַקְרִיב לוֹ אֶת נַפְשִי,
אֶת נַפְשִׁי 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, constant 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.
