Harochav hazeh, hamfasek nechirav
Hagova hazeh hakameha eilecha
Ha’or, hashofe’a lavnut hechalav,
Vere’ach hatzemer, vere’ach halechem.

Ulregel hatzon ve’adam, hakashav
Leron halikluk betoch shoket hamayim –
Bemachsof kol chameshet chushav
Pose’a haboker el mul tzohorayim.

Zeh boker breshit! Basadot ye’adeh
Tlalim min hadesheh uktoret hazevel.
Me’ofek ad ofek: adam – vesadeh,
Me’ofek ad ofek: ha’eder – vehevel.
