הַנּוֺתֵן תְּשׁוּעָה לַמְּלָכִים וּמֶמְשָׁלָה לַנְּסִיכִים מַלְכוּתוֺ מַלְכוּת כָּל־עוֺלָמִים הַפּוֹצֶה אֶת דָּוִד עַבְדּוֹ מֵחֶֽרֶב רָעָה. הַנּוֹתֵן בַּיָּם דֶּֽרֶךְ וּבְמַֽיִם עַזִּים נְתִיבָה. הוּא יְבָרֵךְ וְיִשְׁמוֺר וְיִנְצוֺר וְיַעֲזוֺר וִירוֺמֵם וִיגַדֵּל וִינַשֵּׂא לְמַֽעְלָה
May he that dispenseth salvation unto kings, and dominion unto princes; whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom; who delivered his servant David from the destructive sword; who maketh a way in the sea, and a path through the mighty waters, bless, preserve, guard, and assist our most gracious sovereign Lord,

King GEORGE the third, our most gracious Queen CHARLOTTE, their royal highness GEORGE Prince of Wales, the Princess DOWAGER of Wales, and all the ROYAL FAMILY;

יָרוּם הוֺדָוֺ. מֶֽלֶךְ מַלְכֵי הַמְּלָכִים בְּרַחֲמָיו יְחַיֵֽהוּ וְיִשְׁמְרֵֽהוּ וּמִכָּל צָרָה וְיָגוֺן וָנֶֽזֶק יַצִּילֵה וְיַדְבֵּר עַמִּים תַּֽחַת רַגְלַיו וְיַפִּיל שׂוֺנְאָיו לְפָנָיו וּבְכָל אֲשֶׁר תִּפְנֶה יַצְלִֽיחַ מֶֽלֶךְ מַלְכֵי הַמְּלָכִים בְּרַחֲמָיו יִתֵּן בְּלִבּוֺ וּבְלֵב כָּל יוֺעֲצָיו וְשָׂרָיו רַחֲמָנוֺת לַעֲשׂוֺת טוֺבָה עִמָּֽנוּ וְעִם כָּל יִשְׂרָאֵל בְּיָמָיו וּבְיָמֵֽינוּ תִּוָּשַׁע יְהוּדָה וְיִשְׂרָאֵל יִשְׁכּוֺן לָבֶטַח וּבָא לְצִיּוֺן גּוֺאֵל וְכֵן יְהִי רָצוֺן וָנֺאמַר אָמֵן:
may the supreme king of kings through his infinite mercy preserve them, and grant them life and deliver them from all manner of danger; may the supreme king of kings aggrandize and highly exalt our sovereign Lord the king, and grant him long and prosperously to reign; may the supreme king of kings inspire him and his council and the state of the kingdom with benevolence towards us, and all Israel our brethren; in his days and in our days, may Jehudah be saved, and Israel dwell in safety, and may the redeemer come unto Zion, which God of his infinite mercies grant; and let us say, Amen.

The 1810 edition of the New Year volume of David Levi’s Festival Prayer books, published in London, offers this prayer for the royal family of King George III.
