KUMU NA'ALEH

KUMU NAALE 

GET UP, GO UP (PL.)

RISE UP, LET US GO UP 

Lechan hig'anu me'artzot neichar
chatzinu aravot yamim vegam midbar
amarnu az, nachishah tze'adeinu
yachdav nafri'ach kol har
kol mevaser kibetz az et kulanu
mikatzvei kol ir uch'far
ve'ish el achiv amar

Kumu na'aleh nasimah pe'ameinu
kumu na'aleh lo nira
derech arukah adain lefaneinu
derech arukah lo zru'ah

Yom he'amal rucheinu lo shavar
hayinu kecholmim tzafinu lamachar
zimarnu az mah tovu ohaleinu
mimishkenot he'avar
sof lanedudim veketz lesivloteinu

Kumu na'aleh...

We came here from foreign lands
We crossed over plains, seas
and also desert
Then we said, let's speed up
our steps, together we will
make arable every mountain.
A heralding voice then
gathered us all, from the
ends of every city and
village, and a man to
his brother said:

Chorus
Arise, let us ascend,
take our steps
Arise, let us ascend,
and do not fear. A long
road is still before us
A long road not sown.
End Chorus

A day of labor did not
break our spirits
We were dreamers watching
for tomorrow, then we sang
how good our tents were
compared to dwellings
of the past
An end to wandering and
an end to our sufferings
Because G-d remembered us
And a man to
his brother said:

Chorus
