M'hera Adonai Eloheinu od yishma b'arei Y'huda uvchutzot y'rushalayim, kol sasson v'kol simcha, kol chatan v'kol kala, kol mitzhalot chatanim michupatam unarim mimishte n'ginatam
מְהֵרָה, ה' אֱלֹהֵֽינוּ, עוד יִשָּׁמַע בְּעָרֵי יְהוּדָה וּבְחֻצוֹת יְרוּשָׁלָֽיִם, קוֹל שָׂשׂוֹן וְקוֹל שִׂמְחָה, קוֹל חָתָן וְקוֹל כַּלָּה, קוֹל מִצְהֲלוֹת חֲתָנִים מֵחֻפָּתָם וּנְעָרִים מִמִּשְׁתֵּה נְגִינָתָם
May it soon be heard, Adonai our God, in the cities of Judah and the courtyards of Jerusalem, the voice of joy and gladness, of bride and groom, the joyful cries of grooms from their wedding canopies and young people from their celebrations.
Translation by Gabe Seed
Taken from the Sheva Brachot (seven blessings) recited during a wedding and the week following it.
