Kumi lach rayati, yafati, ul’chi lach;
Ki hineih has’tav avar hageshem chalaf halach lo.
Hinach yafah rayati; hinach yafah;
Einayich yonim mi ba’ad l’tzamateich.
Pitchi li achoti, yonati, tamati;
Hanitzanim nir’u ba’aretz; eit hazamir higia.
Arise, my love, my beautiful one, and come away;
For, behold, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone.
Arise, my love, my beautiful one.
Behold, you are beautiful, my love; behold, you are beautiful;
Your eyes are doves behind your veil.
Behold, you are beautiful, my love.
Open to me, my sister, my dove, my perfect one;
The flowers appear on the earth; the time of singing has come.
Open to me, my sister.
