Just Like this, as I Walk

Just like this, as I walk, I'd like to welcome Shabbat the queen.

My body is clothed in everyday garments, and my body, if at all, is not strong at all, and neither is my soul.

Just as I am, walking, if I welcome the Shabbat queen and the clothing I wear are everyday clothes and my body probably would feel weaker but my soul – would not.

Like this, just as I still walk, if Shabbat the queen greets me, my body shall don Shabbat every day and it will strengthen and Shabbat shall be in my soul.

Go, my soul, go out, bride, every day to greet Shabbat the queen.
