Shalom rav al Yisrael amcha, tasim l’olam,
Shalom rav al Yisrael amcha, tasim l’olam,
Shalom rav, shalom rav.

Shalom rav al Yisrael amcha, tasim l’olam,
Shalom rav al Yisrael amcha, tasim l’olam,
Shalom rav, shalom rav.

How much longer must we wait,
In a world held down by hate?
We are praying for the day
When we rise above our ways,
And we all can live in peace.

Shalom rav al Yisrael amcha, tasim l’olam,
Shalom rav al Yisrael amcha, tasim l’olam,
Shalom rav, shalom rav.

Shalom rav al Yisrael amcha, tasim l’olam,
Shalom rav al Yisrael amcha, tasim l’olam,
Shalom rav, shalom rav,
Shalom rav.

Translation: Establish great peace upon Your people Israel forever.
