Eternally lives in our hearts,
the loyal faith [Haemunah]
to return to our holy land,
the city where David settled.
There we shall stand [to receive] our destiny,
[which the] father of many [nations] acquired,
there we shall live our life
the life of the innumerable community.
There we shall serve our God
with joy, happiness and song
there we shall pilgrimage
three times a year.
Torah of life is our desire,
given from heavenly mouth
forever it is our heritage
from the desert it was given.
HaEmunah – Rav Kook in Response to HaTikvah
