Ba'ah m'nuchah layage'a

Layla chiver mistare'a

Tal milematah ul'vanah me'al,

Mah, mah layla mileil?

Mi yarah umi zeh sham nafal

Mah, mah...

SONG OF THE VALLEY 
REST IS COMING 

The weary came to rest
and finish their labors.
Pale night covers
The fields of the Jezreel Valley.
Dew underneath and moonlight above,
From the Beit Alpha to Nahalal.

Oh, what a night of nights
Silence over Jezreel
Sleep dear Valley, land of glorious beauty
We will guard you.

The sea of grain is swaying,
the song of the flocks rings out,
This is my country and her fields,
This is the Jezreel Valley.
Bless my country reveler
From Beit Alpha to Nahalal.

Oh what ...

Mount Gilboa is darkened
A horse gallops from shadow to shadow.
A voice is carried high.
Over the fields of the Jezreel Valley.
Who is shot? who has fallen?
Between Beit Alpha and Nahalal.

Oh what ...
