Iti milvanon
Iti kala tavo'i.
Mim'onot arayot
Merosh snir vechermon.

Hinach yafa ra'ayati.
Eynayich kayonim.
Zeh dodi zeh re'i
B'not yerushalayim
Zeh dodi.

Come with me from Lebanon, my bride,
With me from Lebanon.
Look from the top of Amana,
From the top of Senir and Hermon.

Behold, thou art fair, my love.
Thine eyes are as doves.
This is my beloved, this is my friend,
Oh daughters of Jerusalem,
This is my beloved.
