Maccabeats - Aleinu Lyricslateit gedulah leyotzeir bereshit,she'lo asanu ke'goyei ha'aratzot,ve'lo samanu ke'mishpechot ha'adamah,she'lo sam chelkeinu kahem,ve'goraleinu ke'chol hamonam.Va'anachnu korim, u'mishtachavim, u'modim,lifnei melech, malchei ham'lachim,hakadosh baruch Hu.She'hu noteh shamayim, ve'yoseid aretz,u'moshav yikaro bashamayim mi-ma'al,u'sh'chinat u-zo be'gavhei me'romim.Hu Eloheinu, ein od. Emet malkeinu, efes zulato.Kakatuv be'torato, ve'yadata hayom, ve'hashevota Eil le'vavecha.Ki Adonai, Hu ha-Elohim, bashamayim mi-ma'al,ve'al ha'aretz mi-tachat. Ein od.Kakatuv be'toratecha: "Adonai yimloch le'olam va'ed."Ve'ne'emar: "Ve'haya Adonai le'melech al kol ha'aretz,bayom hahu yihiyeh Adonai echad, u'shemo echad."It is our duty to praise the Master of all, to acclaim thegreatness of the Onewho forms all creation. For God did not make uslike the nations of otherlands, and did not make us the same as otherfamilies of the Earth. God didnot place us in the same situations as others, andour destiny is not the sameas anyone else's.And we bend our knees, and bow down, and givethanks, before the Ruler,the Ruler of Rulers, the Holy One, Blessed is God.The One who spread out the heavens, and made thefoundations of the Earth,and whose precious dwelling is in the heavensabove, and whose powerfulPresence is in the highest heights. Adonai is ourGod, there is none else.Our God is truth, and nothing else compares. Asitis written in YourTorah: "And you shall know today, and take toheart, that Adonai is the onlyGod, in the heavens above and on Earth below.There is no other."Therefore we put our hope in You, Adonai our God,to soon see the glory ofYour strength, to remove all idols from the Earth,and to completely cut offall false gods; to repair the world, Your holyempire. And for all living fleshto call Your name, and for all the wicked of theEarth to turn to You. May allthe world's inhabitants recognize and know that toYou every knee mustbend and every tongue must swear loyalty. BeforeYou, Adonai, our God,may all bow down, and give honor to Your preciousname, and may all takeupon themselves the yoke of Your rule. And mayYoureign over them soonand forever and always. Because all rule is Yoursalone, and You will rulein honor forever and ever.As it is written in Your Torah:"Adonai will reign forever and ever."And it is said: "Adonai will be Ruler over thewhole Earth, and on that day,God will be One, and God's name will be One.
