Sing along in Hebrew to “Shir Hamalot” performed by Shai Abramson. The lyrics are taken from Psalm 126.
Sheer ha’ma’a’lot b’shoov adonai
A song of ascents. When the Lord returns
Et sheevat tzee-on ha-yeenoo kekholmeem
the returnees to Zion, we shall be like dreamers
Ahz yee’maleh skhok peenoo oo’lshonaynoo reena
Then our mouths will be filled with laughter and our tongues with songs of praise;
ahz yom’-roo vagoyeem
then they will say among the nations
heeg-deel adonai la’asot eem eleh
The Lord has done great things with these.
heeg-deel adonai l’a’sot eemanoo ha-yeenoo semekheem
The Lord has done great things with us; we were happy.
shoovah adonai et she’vee-tay-noo, ka’afee-keem ba-negev
Return, O Lord, our captivity like rivulets in arid land
hazoreem b’deemah, b’reena yeeks-oroo
those who sow with tears will reap with song
halokh yelekh oo’vakhoh
he will go along weeping
noseh meshekh ha’zarah
carrying the valuable seeds
bo yavo v’reena noseh aloo-mo-tav
he will come back with song, carrying his sheaves
