SHIRAT HA'ASAVIM 
SHIR HAASAVIM DANCE 

Da lekha,
shekol ro'eih ve ro'eih
yeish lo nigun meyuchad mishelo.

Da lekha,
shekol eisev va'eisev
yeish lo shirah meyuchedet mishelo.
Umishirat ha'asavim
na'aseh nigun shel ro'eih.
Kamah yafeh, kama yafeh vena'eih
kesheshom'im hashirah shelahem.
Tov me'od lehitpaleil beineihem
uvesimchah la'avod et Hasheim.
Umishirat ha'asavim

Ukhshehaleiv, min hashirah mitmalei
umishtokeik el erets yisra'eil.
Or gadol azay nimshakh veholeikh
mikdushatah shel ha'arets alav.
Umishirat ha'asavim,
na'aseh nigun shel haleiv.

THE POEM OF THE GRASSES 
THE GREENS' SONG 

Do know
that each and every shepherd
has his own tune.

Do know
that each and every grass
has its own poem.
And from the poem of the grasses
a tune of a sheppard is made
How beautiful, how beautiful and pleasant
to hear their poem.
It's very good to pray among them
and to serve the Lord in joy
And from the poem of the grasses
the heart is filled and yearns

And when the poem causes the heart to fill
and to yearn to the Land of Israel
a great light is drawn and goes
from the Land's holiness upon it.
And from the poem of the grasses
a tune of the heart is made.
