Hatikvah: The Hope
Based on Joel 4

Hark! from Zion it comes -- from Jerusalem, hear God's roar
Thundering skies shield and protect, all the people ever more

The weak shall be strong, and all shall be free;
and you shall know that I am the One
Judah eternal a life-giving tree,
upon my wings, under my sun

Come to pass on the last day,
nectar and song from the mountains--and lo!
Justice, mercy -- then from each hill,
as water in every river shall flow

That ancient spring, my children you'll see,
again from on high, as if from a stone
To cleanse all your blood, the blood that stained me,
let my love shine, no more be alone

A renewed source from Zion shall spring,
sustain all my world, let the bells ring
The future blessed for each living thing,
we raise our voice and together we sing
