AL EM HADERECH

Al em haderech etz amad,
amad nofel apaim.
Num, numah bein halailah rad,
leil sa'ar al hamayim.

Has, yeled, has'finah al tzad
notah miza'af ru'ach.
Al em hadrech etz amad,
ein tzitz ve'ein tapu'ach.

El zeh ha'etz ei pa'am, ben,
avi imech higi'a.
Vetzel arvit be'etz kinen
uvad hu lo hini'a.

Kavash bo rosh avi imech,
panav liy'rushalaim.
Nasa bivechi t'filat minchah,
im Elohav bishnaim.

Al kach supar, al kach hugad,
beshir yafeh, shachu'ach.
Has, yeled, has'finah al tzad,
zo'eket mul haru'ach.

Has, yeled, has'finah al tzad,
chutrah, sho'eget m'ri,
al em haderech etz amad,
ein perach ve'ein p'ri.

El zeh ha'etz avich, ben
nik'shar, akud bechevel.
Barzel veshot hakuko, ben,
vecham timer hahevel.

Uch'shehayah ke'esh adom
hashot hachad micherev,
tzanach avicha artzha dom,
le'et minchah, im erev.

Tzanach mimizbecho le'at,
panav liy'rushalaim.
Has, yeled, has'finah al tzad,
kor'ah, nosheket mayim.

Kor'at has'finah al tzad,
olah sh'lufat tziporen!
Al em haderech etz nichrat,
nichrat vay'hi letoren...

Al has'finah nitzav hu ram,
chavuk bechevel peled,
ha'etz hashav mishir ha'am,
mezamer hak'falot.

Elav nikra'at rua'ch leil,
uche'ilu shuv, lefet'a,
kulotovel bitz'chok veyalel
shel tof uk'larinetah.

Has, yeled, sha'ar hat'hilah
letoren yif'tach.
Hu gam hayom amud t'filah,
hu gam hayom mizbe'ach.

Al em haderech etz amad,
ve'lo yipol apaim.
Num, yeled, has'finah al tzad
chutrah, boka'at mayim.
