If it pleases the King, let my soul be given in my question
If I have found favor in the eyes of the king
Let my soul be given in my question and my nation in my request

HaKadosh Baruch Hu shomer aleinu az mi yachol aleinu ki ein lanu od medinah
Taโ€™aseh shalom beineinu shmor al yeladeinu ki lo avdah haโ€™emunah

The nation of Israel lives, if we donโ€™t forget always to be united
The nation of Israel lives, in the ups, the downs, and in the hardest hours
Hashem watches over us, so who can overcome us, because we have no other land
Make peace between us, watch over our children, because we have not lost hope
