THE LAND OF ISRAEL 

A land, a land, a land,
a land of a light blue sky without a cloud ,
and the sun is to it (to the land)
like milk and honey.
A land we were born in
a land we will live in,
and we will continue living here
no matter what happens.

A land that we'll love,
like Mother and Father,
a land of the people,
a land forever.
A land we were born in
a land we will live in,
no matter what happens.

A land, a land, a land,
the sea up against the shore,
and flowers and children
without end.
In the North - the Sea of Galilee,
In the South - sands,
And the East to the West
kisses the borders.

A land that we'll love...

A land, a land, a land,
land of the Torah,
you're the source of light
and the language of faith.
A land, a land, a land,
a dear land,
you promised
that it is not a fairytale.

A land that we'll love...

Our Land of Israel

O-ur land of Israel,
Sky so blue & clean
Where the sunshine flows like honey & cream.
This land we were born in,
This land we’ll live free
And we’ll stay no matter what will be.

Chorus:
Oh, this land we love
Like parents love a child
Land of o-ur folk
Land forever more,
This land we were born in,
This land we’ll live free
No matter what will be.

Our land of Israel,
With sea against the shore
Where the children blossom evermore.
In the north – Kineret
In the south – the sand
And from East to West the sea and Yar-deyn

Our land of Israel,
Land of the Torah,
You’re our greatest light
And our true Law.
Our land of Israel,
Land worth more than gold
This is real and not a fable told.
