This is beautiful

The Kaddish is an old Jewish hymn of praise to God. It is recited at funerals and in memory of the departed, but it is emphatically not a ‘prayer for the dead’. It celebrates the sovereignty of God and looks forward to a time when the Kingdom of Heaven will be established throughout the earth. The sanctification of God’s name has been seen as the ultimate duty of the Jewish people. The Kaddish is a communal prayer, and the ‘Amen’ is an important response to its assertions

Glorified and sanctified be God’s great name throughout the world which He has created according to His will. May He establish His kingdom in your lifetime and during your days, and within the life of the entire House of Israel, speedily and soon; and say, Amen.

May His great name be blessed forever and to all eternity.

Blessed and praised, glorified and exalted, extolled and honored, adored and lauded be the name of the Holy One, blessed be He, beyond all the blessings and hymns, praises and consolations that are ever spoken in the world; and say, Amen.

May there be abundant peace from heaven, and life, for us
and for all Israel; and say, Amen.

He who creates peace in His celestial heights, may He create peace for us and for all Israel; and say, Amen.
