All of these are fun to do with children of almost any age. Some are in English, some are in transliterated Hebrew, and a few are in both. (Unfortunately, I don't have the ability to put the lyrics into Hebrew script on the web as of yet, and the Hebrew is done only in transliteration.)

Adon Olam

Adom olam asher malach, b'terem kol y'tzir nivra
L'et na'asah v'chef'tso kol, azai melech sh'mo nikra

V'acharei kich'lot hakol, levado yimloch nora
V'hu haya, v'hu hoveh, v'hu y'hiyeh b'tifara

V'hu echad v'ein sheini, l'hamshil lo l'hachbirah
B'li reishit b'li tachlit, v'lo ha'oz v'hamisrah

V'hu eili v'chai go'ali, v'tzur chevli b'et tzarah
V'hu nisi u'manos li, m'nat kosi b'yom ekrah

B'yado afkid ruchi, b'et ishan v'a-ira
V'im ruchi g'viyati, adonai li, v'lo ira

Eternal L-rd who ruled alone before creation of all forms, when all was made at His desire, then as the king was He revealed. And after everything shall end alone, in wonder, will He reign, as once He was, so is He now, the glory that will never change. He is the One, no other is to be compared, to stand beside, neither before, nor following, His is the strength and His is the might. This is my G-D, my life he saves, the rock I grasp in deep despair, the flag I wave, the place I hide, He shares my cup the day I call. Within His hand I lay my soul both when I sleep and when I wake, and with my soul my body too, my L-rd is close I shall not fear.

Uri tzafon uvo'i teiman

Ein Kelohenu

Ein kelohenu, ein kadoneinu,
ein kemalkeinu, ein kemoshienu.

Mi kelohenu, mi kadoneinu,
mi kemalkeinu, mi kemoshienu.

Nodeh lelohenu, nodeh ladoneinu,
nodeh lemalkeinu, nodeh lemoshienu.

Baruch elohenu, baruch adoneinu,
baruch malkeinu, baruch moshienu.

Atah hu elohenu, atah hu adoneinu,
atah hu malkeinu, atah hu moshienu.

There is none like our G-D,
there is none like our L-rd,
there is none like our King,
there is none like our saviour.

Who is like....

We give thanks to...

Blessed is...

You are...

L'cha Dodi

(refrain)
L'cha dodi likrat kala
P'nei shabbat n'kabalah

Likrat shabbat l'chu v'nelcha
Ki hi m'kor habracha
Merosh mikedem n'sucha
Sof ma'aseh b'machshava t'chila.

Hitoreri, hitoreri
Ki va orech kumi ori
Uri uri shir dabeiri
K'vod hashem alayich nigla.

Bo'i v'shalom ateret ba'la
Gam b'simcha uv-tzohola
Toch emunei am s'gula
Bo'i chala, bo'i chala.
