    Go-el ha-am.

    Who can retell the things
         that befell us,
    Who can count them?
    In every age a hero or sage,
    Came to our aid.  
    (repeat)
    Sh'ma! Bayamim hahem
         bazman hazeh,
    Makabi moshiyah ufodeh -
    Uv'yamenu kol am Yisra-el,
    Yit'ahed, yakum veyiga-el.
    Hark! In days of yore in
         Israel's ancient land,
    Brave Maccabeus lad the

    But now all Israel must
         as on arise,
    Redeem itself through
         deed and sacrifice.
    Mi yemalel g'vurot Yisra-el,
    Otan mi yimneh?
    Hen b'khol dor yakum
         hagibor,
    Go-el ha-am.  
    (repeat)
    Who can retell the things
         that befell us,
    Who can count them?
    In every age a hero or sage,
    Came to our aid.
