Israel National Anthem
The Hope (Hatikvah)

Lyrics
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.
