A Song of Praise – 60 to Israel
This is the 60th birthday for Israel as State
Therefore, we are joyous and we all celebrate!
If you were born here – this homeland is for you
And Israel is the place for every single Jew
The Hebrew language is by all of us shared
Whether a local or an arrival from abroad
The language with love embraces the whole nation
The dialect the Tanach then becomes a revelation
Your settlers and guests give you, Israel – a blessing:
So that your light shall forever be shining!
That you shall exist for all eternity
Providing us a homeland with security.
