The Angel who Has Redeemed Me
הַמַּלְאָךְ הַגֹּאֵל אֹתִי
הַמַּלְאָךְ הַגֹּאֵל אֹתִי מִכָּל-רָע,
וְיִקָּרֵא בָהֶם שְׁמִי,
וְשֵׁם אֲבֹתַי אַבְרָהָם וְיִצְחָק;
וְיִדְגּוּ לָרֹב, בְּקֶרֶב הָאָרֶץ
May the angel who has* redeemed me from all evil,
bless the lads;
And let them be called by my name,**
And the name of my fathers
Abraham and Isaac;
And let them grow into a multitude
In the midst of the earth.
*It's "hath" in the original translation.
**Original translation, "And let my name be named in them."
