Lyrics: Zot Admati by David Shimoni
(Transliteration from Hebrew)

Zot Admati
Uva esha’era,
Uva al niri
Et meshech hazera.

Esa ve’emun
Begil ba’atzevet
Mi’yeza vatal
Shibolet mazhevet.

Im shachar olich
Behemti el ha’ayin,
Hashachar zehavo
Yashkeini keyayin.

          Zot Admati
          Uva esha’era,
          Uva al niri
          Et meshech hazera.

Yomam al tlamai,
Et shemesh tochleini
Haru’ach miyam
Yavo vi’yechayeini.

Balayla timtak
Li shnat ha’ovedet,
Bidlok al roshi
Kochavei hamoledet.

          Zot Admati
          Uva esha’era,
          Uva al niri
          Et meshech hazera.
