Our Israel is 60 Years old

Happy birthday to Israel – she's 60 today!

We are all so excited in every single way!

 

In the fields workers are sowing and plowing;

On the roads many cars are busy touring;

On the beach and the Kineret – multitudes are swimming;

In the schools and kindergartens children run happily;

And the beautiful sunshine – is enjoyed immensely;

 

Happy birthday to Israel – She's 60 today!

We are all so excited in every single way!

 

50 years on the map to be.

Had Herzl lived -  this beauty to see.

Hand in hand we'll get all around

To embrace the country, we are bound.

We'll celebrate – with song and sound!

In every settlement, kibbutz and town!

 

Happy birthday to Israel – She's 60 today!

We are all so excited in every single way!

 

 We'll spread out a banner – all country wide

And make sure its colors are pure blue and white

The white we shall borrow from a cloud way up high

The blue – a gift the sea won't deny

And winds from all four directions will enter

A huge Star of David right in the center

 

Happy birthday to Israel – she's 60 today!

We are all so excited in every single way!

 

Country dear, on your holiday what may be your blessings?

May many flowers and trees be blossoming;

May birds from within bushes be chirping;

May you be filled with children happily growing;

Prevail! And many people – your grounds shall be hosting.
