הַמַּבְדִּיל בֵּין קֹדֶשׁ לְחֹל | Hamavdil Bein Ḳodesh l’Ḥol (abridged), a piyyut attributed to Yitsḥak ben Yehudah Ibn Ghayyāth HaLevi (ca. 11th c.)

Source (Hebrew and Ladino) Translation (English)

הַמַּבְדִּיל
בֵּין קֹדֶשׁ לְחֹל
חַטֹאתֵינוּ הוּא יִמְחוֹל
זַרְעֵנוּ וְכַסְפֵּנוּ
יַרְבֶּה כַּחוֹל
וְכַכּוֹכָבִים בַּלָּיְלָה.
The one who distinguishes
holy from mundane
Will forgive our sins
Will make our children and our wealth
as numerous as sand
and as the stars at night

יוֹם פָּנָה כְּצֵל תֹּמֶר
אֶקְרָא לָאֵל עָלַי גּוֹמֵר
יוֹם אֲשֶׁר אָמַר שׁוֹמֵר
אָתָא בֹּקֶר וְגַם לָיְלָה.
Day turns away to the shadow of a pillar
I will call to EL as the day ends
On which They said
to rest from the morning to the night.

A la derecha Mihael
I a la izkierda Gavriel
I sovre su kavesa Shehinat El
Kada dia i kada noche
On the right is Michael,
On the left is Gabriel
Above my head is the presence of God
Every day and every night
