Listen To Hatikva With Words

By Ben Sidran - Life's a Lesson



As long as the Jewish spirit is yearning deep in the heart,
With eyes turned toward the East, looking toward Zion,
Then our hope—the two-thousand-year-old hope—will not be lost:
To be a free people in our land,
The land of Zion and Jerusalem.

Hebrew Transliteration:

Kol ode balevav P’nimah
Nefesh Yehudi homiyah
Ulfa’atey mizrach kadimah Ayin l’tzion tzofiyah.
Ode lo avdah tikvatenu Hatikvah bat shnot alpayim:
L’hiyot am chofshi b’artzenu—Eretz Tzion v’Yerushalayim.


The words to HaTikvah were written in 1886 by Naphtali Herz Imber, an English poet originally from Bohemia. The melody was written by Samuel Cohen, an immigrant from Moldavia.
