Le’ovdah ule’shomrah (x2)

[Repeat x3]

The storms, they crash, and the fires burn

The rivers flood, and you don’t know where to turn

Give me your hand

And we’ll stand together

For a better day

Le’ovdah ule’shomrah (x2)

We will serve the earth and protect our home

Stand for truth, for justice, for hope

They may turn away and pretend that they don’t see

But still we say “for our children to be free

we must change our course,

let go of the greed

and make a better day”

We’ll show them how we can heal our dying roots

We’ll work the ground and they’ll see the flowers bloom

The-sun comes up again

Though we’ve got no time to lose

We’re on our way

Le’ovdah ule’shomrah (x2)

We will serve the earth and protect our home

Stand for truth, for justice, for hope

[Repeat x2]

Le’ovdah ule’shomrah (x2)

[Repeat x3]

Le’ovdah ule’shomrah (x2)

We will serve the earth and protect our home

Stand for truth, for justice, for hope

Be the truth, the justice, the hope

We are truth, and justice, and hope
