This illustration also contains the blessing for lighting the Shabbat candles. It reads:

Baruch ata Adonay
Eloheinu melech ha-olam
asher kid’shanu be’mitzvo’tav
ve-tzivanu lehadlik ner shel Shabbat.

Blessed are you, L rd our G d, King of the universe, who has sanctified us with His commandments, and commanded us to kindle the Shabbat light.
