“Am Yisrael Chai”
The nation of Israel shall live forever
Our souls as one
Our minds as one
Striving for peace
Whilst striving for our best selves
Praying for hope
When all hope seems lost
Seeking safety for our home
When safety seems far from us
 
We stand together
As one mighty nation
Strong against all others
Who seek to destroy us
We are strong
We are forever
We are “Am Yisrael Chai”
