SHAV EL ADMATI

Kach aliti, artzah bati,
et haderech lo shachachti
shebah halachti ani vetamati
im tapeinu venasheinu
utz'rorot az beyadeinu,
mi al aton yir'kav
umi bishtei raglav.

Chorus:
Ani yode'a shezo haderech,
ani yad'ati (od) haderech arukah.

Ana Eli, ha'er na darki,
ozreni na ki shav ani,
shav el admati.
(x2)

Uvaleilot shel nedudeinu
Yerushalaim mul eineinu,
bachalomot ra'inu rak otah
ko yafah umekudeshet,
belibeinu merageshet
be'ahavah eleinu hi nik'sheret.

Chorus...

Derech chol midbar avarnu,
lo nilenu lo ayafnu
ve'et naf'sheinu me'osher
lo yad'anu.
Sham ba'ofek mechakah hi,
lo od bechi mar vanehi

Chorus...

RETURNING TO MY LAND

So I ascended and came to the (Holy) Land,
I did not forget the path
that I took, me and my beloved
With our small children and our women
and bundles then in our hands,
who will ride on a donkey
and who on his own two feet.

Chorus:
I know that this is the path,
I knew the way is (still) long.

Please G-d, light up my away please,
help me because I am coming back,
returning to my land.
(x2)

And during the night of our wandering,
Jerusalem in front of our eyes,
in our dreams we saw only it,
so beautiful and sacred,
exciting to our hearts
it's bound to us with love.

Chorus...

We crossed the desert through sand,
we didn't get exhausted, we didn't grow weary
and our souls
did not know happiness.
There in the horizon it awaits,
no more sour weeping or lament

Chorus...
