Lyrics:Im Eshkachech Yerushakayim
(transliterated from Hebrew to English)

Im eshkachech yerushalayim
Tishkach yemini
Tidbak leshoni lechiki
Im lo ezkerechi
Im lo a’aleh et yerushalayim
Al rosh simchati

Translation (Psalms 137)

If I forget thee, O Jerusalem,
let my right hand forget her cunning.
Let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth,
if I remember thee not;
if I set not Jerusalem above my chiefest joy.
