Hatikvah

As long as in the heart within, כֹּל עוֹד בַּלֵּבָב פְּנִימָה
The Jewish soul yearns, נֶפֶשׁ יְהוּדִי הוֹמִיָּה
And towards the ends of the east, וּלְפַאֲתֵי מִזְרָח קָדִימָה
[The Jewish] eye gazes toward Zion, עַיִן לְצִיּוֹן צוֹפִיָּה
Our hope is not yet lost, עוֹד לֹא אָבְדָה תִּקְוָתֵנוּ
The hope of two thousand years, הַתִּקְוָה בַּת שְׁנוֹת אַלְפַּיִם
To be a free nation in our own land, לִהְיוֹת עַם חָפְשִׁי בְּאַרְצֵנוּ
The land of Zion and Jerusalem. אֶרֶץ צִיּוֹן וִירוּשָׁלַיִם
