OD NASHUV

WE WILL COME BACK

Galinu me'artzenu bochim

Charev beit mikdashenu
shu'alim bo mehalchim
Tluyim kinorotenu
ne'elam po hashirim
Dom'ot tamid enenu
al betenu hashomem

Nevakesh otcha avinu
mikdashenu lekomem
Im lo lema'anenu
aseh lema'ancha
umal'ach lehoshi'enu
lanu shlach mime'oncha
Yagel yismach libenu

Hashivenu elecha
nashuv adecha
Shov od nashuva
Et yamenu lechadesh
Shov od nashuva
Et yamenu lechadesh

We had to leave our country, crying
To live in the diaspora
Our temple is destroyed,
foxes are occupying it
Our violins are hung up,
there are no more songs
Our eyes fill with tears
of our deserted home

We will ask you, our father,
to rebuild our temple
If not for us,
do it for yourself
And from your home
send us an angel to save us
Our heart will then be happy
We will see you are the saviour

Bring us back to you,
we will come back
We will come back
And our good days will be back
We will come back
And our good days will be back
