LEMA'AN TZION


 

Lemaan Tziyon lo echesheh,
Ulmaan Yerushalayim lo eshkot,
Ad-yetzei chanogah tzidkah,
Viyshuatah kelapid yivar.

Vra-u goyim tzidkech
v'chol melachim kevodech.



FOR ZION'S SAKE


For Zion's sake, I will not hold My peace
And for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest,
Until her righteousness shall go forth as a bright star
And her salvation like a torch shall burn.

And the nations shall see your triumph,
and all kings your glory.
