AL TIRA


 

Al tira, avdi Ya'akov,
hoi, chalamti chalom,
al tira, avdi Ya'akov,
ma nora hamakom!
Nitzav lo hasulam
im malachei shamayim,
yordim ve'olim kulam
im tz'chorei knafayim...
Yishar kochacha, Ya'akov, acha!
Kuma ledarkecha kedma, mizracha!
Lech kadimah,
el tach'tah,
lech lecha,
ki takum
ha'aretz atah
lecha ulezar'acha!

DON'T FEAR


Don't fear, my servant Jacob,
ho, I dreamed a dream,
don't fear, my servant Jacob,
what a dreadful place!
the ladder is standing
with heavenly angels,
they all descend and ascend
with wings in a pale shade...
May your strength not stray, brother Jacob!
Get up to your path, forward, to the East!
Go forward,
underneath,
go,
for the land
shall rise now
for you and your seed!
