AHAVAT HADASSA 

Ahavat Hadassa al levavi
al levavi niksherah
va'ani betoch golah pe'ami
golah pe'ami tzolelim.

Lu yesh reshut e'eleh
e'eleh et'chabrah
toch sh'arei tzion asher hem
asher hem nihlalim.

Shacharit ve'aravit bat nedivim
bat nedivim azkarah
libi vere'ayoni berinah
berinah tzohalim.

Ahavat yechidati letov
vetov el neharah
baruch she'hu noten sachar
sachar lechol hapo'alim.

Shalom kenahar le'adti
le'adti yinharah
zaken vegam bachur vechol
bachur vechol haholelim.

Ahavat Hadassa al levavi
al levavi niksherah
ve'ani betoch golah pe'ami
golah pe'ami tzolelim.

LOVE OF HADASSA 

Love of Hadassa is on my heart
it was hooked on my heart
and I'm inside an occasional diaspora
an occasional plunging diaspora

If there's a permission, I'd get up
I'd get up and get allied
through the Gates of Zion which are,
which are praised.

Morning and evening prayer of the generous
the generous memorial service
my heart and my thought is in a song
song of joys.

The love of my only one for good
and good to the light
bless be he who gives wage
wage to all the workers.

Peace like a stream to my communal
to my communal will stream
old man and young man too and all
each young man and all the gives of praise.

Love of Hadassa is on my heart
it was hooked on my heart
and I'm inside an occasional diaspora
an occasional plunging diaspora
