Odecha ki anitani,
 vat'hi li lishua.
Eben maasu habonim,
 hayeta l'rosh pina.
Meet adonai hay'ta zot,
 hi nifla'at b'eynenu.
Ze hayom asa adonai,
 nagila v'nism'cha vo.
(Transliterated according to
modern Sephardic pronunciation)

English.png English translation

I thank you that you have answered me
 and brought salvation to me.
The stone which the builders rejected
 has become the cornerstone.
This is God's doing;
 it is marvelous in our eyes.
This day God has made;
 let us rejoice and delight in it.
