122nd post

It's still not the 4th of July, but I'll teach you all the words to the national anthem anyway. Ready? Here goes:

כל עוד בלבב פנימה

נפש יהודי הומיה;

ולפאתי מזרח קדימה

עין לציון צופיה,

עוד לא עבדה תקוותינו,

התקווה בת שנות אלפיים:

להיות עם חופשי בארצינו,

ארץ ציון ירושלים.

Kol od ba-levav p'nimah

Nefesh yehudi homiyah;

U'l'fa-atei mizrach kadimah

Ayin le-tziyon tzofiyah,

Od loh avdah tikvateinu,

Ha-tikvah bat sh'not alpayim:

Li-h'yot am chofshi be-artzeinu,

Eretz tziyon yerushalayim.

So long as in a heart

A Jewish soul burns;

And towards the east

An eye is turned to Zion,

Our hope is still not lost,

The hope two thousand years old:

To be a free nation in our country,

A land of Zion and Jerusalem.
