Before Reading the Book of Esther
בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ אֱלֹהֵֽינוּ
מֶֽלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם,
אֲשֶׁר קִדְּשָֽׁנוּ בְּמִצְוֺתָיו,
וְצִוָּֽנוּ עַל מִקְרָא מְגִלָּה׃‏
Blessed art thou, O God, our King,
The Lord of life and everything.
Whose word has hallowed Israel’s soul.
And bade us read Queen Esther’s scroll;
(Because her courage and her faith,
When God had pity in old days,
In exile saved us all from death
And let us live to sing his praise.)

This translation and supplement for the blessing before listening to Megilat Esther on Purim was made by Jessie Ethel Sampter and published in her Around the Year in Rhymes for the Jewish Child (1920), p. 48.
