The passion of my heart, my treasure

The first and last place I turn to

When my sprit needs a lift

You are the resting place for my soul

Jerusalem of the gold, you are my gift.

The jewel of my heart, Jerusalem

My forefather’s treasure, David’s City

Your divine nature subdue evil waves

For you are the source of tranquility!

How can I abandon or ignore?

Your beauty, joy and grace

Like my forefathers I vow to you

My love for you is timeless.

Listen, Jerusalem! I make a vow

Following a righteous course

Let my right hand forget its cunning

If I forget my solemn promise.
