Hig’dil A’do’shem La’a’sot I’ma’nu – Ha’yi’nu Se’mei’chim.

When the Lord returns the exiles of Zion – we will be like dreamers.

Then our mouths we fill with laughter and our tongues with songs of joy.

Then will they say among the nations, “The Lord has done great deeds for these.”

The Lord performed great deeds for us – and we are joyful.

Lord – return our exiles as streams to arid soil. Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy. He who weeps as he carries his bag of seeds – will surely return with songs of joy when he reaps his sheaves [bundles of grain stalks].
