הַנּוֹתֵן תְּשׁוּעָה | Prayer for the Royal Family of Queen Elizabeth II (1962)

Source (Hebrew) Translation (English)

The Minister takes the סֵֽפֶר תּוֹרָה, and reads the following Prayer for the Queen and the Royal Family:—

הַנּוֹתֵן תְּשׁוּעָה לַמְּלָכִים
וּמֶמְשָׁלָה לֲנְּסִיכִים
מַלְכוּתוֹ מַלְכוּת כׇּל־עֹולָמִים
He who giveth salvation unto kings
and dominion unto princes,
whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,

הוּא יְבָרֵֽךְ
אֶת אֲדוֹנֵֽינוּ הַמֶּֽלֶךְ
—may he bless
Our Sovereign Lady, Queen Elizabeth (II),
Elizabeth the Queen Mother,
Philip Duke of Edinburgh,
Charles Prince of Wales
and all the Royal Family.

מֶֽלֶךְ מַלְכֵי הַמְּלָכִים
בְּרַחֲמָיו יְחַיֶּֽיהָ
וּמִכׇּל־צָרָה וְיָגוֹן יַצִּילֶֽהָ
May the supreme King of kings
in his mercy preserve the Queen in life,
guard her
and deliver her from all trouble and sorrow.

וְיִתֵּן בְּלִבָּהּ
וּבְלֵב כׇּל־יוֹעֲצֶיהָ
רוּחַ חָכְמָה וּבִינָה
לְהַחֲזִיק שְׁלוֹם הַמַּלְכוּת
וְשַׁלְוַת עַמָּהּ
וְלַעֲשׂוֹת חֶֽסֶד וֶאֶמֶת עִם־כׇּל־יִשְׂרָאֵל׃
May he put into her heart
and into the hearts of all her counsellors,
a spirit of wisdom and understanding
that they may uphold the peace of the realm,
advance the welfare of the nation,
and deal kindly and truly with all Israel.

בְּיָמֶיהָ וּבְיָמֵֽינוּ
יִפְרֹשׂ אָבִֽינוּ שֶׁבַּשָׁמַֽיִם
סֻכַּת שָׁלוֹם
עַל־כׇּל־יוֹשְׁבֵי תֵבֵל
וּבָא לְצִיּוֹן גּוֹאֵל
וְנֺאמַר אָמֵן׃
In her days and in ours,
may our Heavenly Father spread
the tabernacle of peace
over all the dwellers on earth;
and may the redeemer come unto Zion;
and let us say, Amen.

This is the formula of the prayer for the government established by chief rabbi Joseph H. Hertz in 1935 for the Royal Jubilee Service, applied to the reign of Queen Elizabeth by chief rabbi Israel Brodie in his revision of the Authorised Daily Prayer Book (1962), p. 203-204.
