Lyrics: At Moledet – Leah Goldberg
(Transliterated from Hebrew)
Al hahar metapsim hashvilim,
Bamerchak pa’amon hagmalim,
Bamish’ol mul parochet haleil,
Tzel brosh ariri mitpalel.

          At moledet le’or levana
          At kmo ima zocheret et bna
          Chalonech sheniftach mul dmama
          Lo yeda tardema.

Al yadeinu kotzei hatzabar
Al sfateinu chiyuch: – Ein davar!-
Uvsareinu ko’ev ve’ohev
Et maga admatech hatzorev.

          At moledet le’or levana
          At kmo ima zocheret et bna
          Chalonech sheniftach mul dmama
          Lo yeda tardema.
