Hava nagila, hava nagila
Hava nagila ve-nis'mecha

Hava neranena, hava neranena
Hava neranena venis'mecha

Uru, uru achim
Uru achim belev same'ach

Let us rejoice, let us rejoice
Let us rejoice and be glad

Let us sing, let us sing
Let us sing and be glad

Awaken, awaken brethren
Awaken brethren with a cheerful heart.

Kom lat oss vera glade,
Kom lat oss jubla
Kom lat oss syngja for Gud. (2x)

Kom la oss gled oss no,
Dansa og syngja ut
Kom lat oss jubla saman for Gud. (2x)

Vakna, alle saman!

Vakna opp, ver med i songen
Vakna opp, ver med i dansen
Vakna opp, ver med i krinsen,
Vakna opp!
Vakna opp!
Ver med i songen.
