V'lirushalayim irecha berachamim tashuv, vetishkon betochah ka'asher dibarta.
Uvneh otah bekarov beyameinu binyam olam.
Vechise David avdecha mherah letocha tachin.
וְלִירוּשָלַיִם עִירְךָ בְּרַחֲמִים תָּשוּב וְתִּשְׁכוֹן בְּתוֹכָהּ כַּאֲשֶׁר דִבַּרְתָּ.
וּבְנֵה אוֹתָהּ בְּקָרוֹב בְּיָמֵינוּ בִּניַן עוֹלָם.
וכסא דוד עבדך מהרה לתוכה תכין
And to Jerusalem, thy city, return in mercy, and dwell therein as thou hast spoken; rebuild it soon in our days as an everlasting building, and speedily set up therein the throne of David.
Translation from The Standard Prayer book by Simeon Singer (1915) (public domain)
Words: The 14th blessing of the weekday amidah.
