The Words


Kol od balevav penima
Nefesh Yehudi homiya
Ul'faatey mizrach kadima
Ayin letziyon tzofiya
Od lo avda tikvatenu
Hatikva bat shnot alpayim
Lihyot am chofshi b'artzenu
Eretz Tsiyon, Yerushalayim (2x)

As long as deep inside the heart
The Jewish soul yearns
And to the farthest corners of the East
The eye seeks out Zion,
Our hope is not lost
That 2000 year old hope
To be a free people in our land
The land of Zion, Jerusalem
