O ISRAEL, thy glory gleamed
Through long ages long ago;
O Israel, a David dreamed
Within thy tents of snow;
Thy warriors wise, and brave, and good,
Thy women queens of womanhood,
A pillared cloud, and manna food,
O Israel, sweet Israel.

O Israel, again I see
Thy chariot in the sky!
The seed of Abraham shall be
Through all eternity;
Our fathers' faith, our fathers' God,
The paths of peace wherein they trod,
With love, with truth, thy soul be shod,
O Israel, sweet Israel.
