Hebrew lyrics


Modern Hebrew


First verse

כֹּל עוֹד בַּלֵּבָב פְּנִימָה
נֶפֶשׁ יְהוּדִי הוֹמִיָּה,
וּלְפַאֲתֵי מִזְרָח קָדִימָה,
עַיִן לְצִיּוֹן צוֹפִיָּה;

Second verse

עוֹד לֹא אָבְדָה תִּקְוָתֵנוּ,
הַתִּקְוָה בַּת שְׁנוֹת אַלְפַּיִם,
לִהְיוֹת עַם חָפְשִׁי בְּאַרְצֵנוּ,
אֶרֶץ צִיּוֹן וִירוּשָׁלַיִם.

Arabic script


طالما في القلب تكمن،
نفس يهودية تتوق،
وللأمام نحو الشرق،
عين تنظر إلى صهيون.

أملنا لم يضع بعد،
أمل عمره ألفا سنة،
أن نكون أمّة حرّة في أرضنا أرض صهيون و أورشليم .


Romanisation of Arabic


Ṭālamā fī al-qalb takmun,
Nafsun yahūdiyya tatuq,
Wa-lilʾamām naḥwa aš-šarq,
ʿAynun tanẓuru ʾilá ṣahyūn.

ʾAmalunā lam yaḍaʿ baʿd,
ʾAmalun ʿumruhu ʾal-fāni sana,
ʾAn nakūn ʾummatan ḥurra fī bilādinā,
Bilādu ṣahyūn waʾūrušalīm al-quds.


English translation


Literal

As long as in the heart, within,
A Jewish soul still yearns,
And onward, towards the ends of the east,
an eye still gazes toward Zion;

Our hope is not yet lost,
The hope two thousand years old,
To be a free nation in our land,
The land of Zion and Jerusalem.

Poetic

O while within a Jewish heart,
Yearns true a Jewish soul,
And Jewish glances turning East,
To Zion fondly dart;

O then our Hope—it is not dead,
Our ancient Hope and true,
To be a nation free forevermore
Zion and Jerusalem at our core.
