1. Israel, O Israel!  I will write my law in your heart.

I shall be your God and you will be my people.

I have loved you with an everlasting love.

I will gather and keep you, as a shepherd keeps his flock,

And your soul shall be as a watered garden, a watered garden.

 

2. Israel, O Israel! I will write my law in your heart;

I shall be your God, and you will be my people.

I have loved you with an everlasting love.

 

3. The watchmen shall cry upon mount Ephraim:

“Arise and let us go up to Zion!”

Sing with gladness and hope, O Israel!

I have loved you with an everlasting love!

O Israel! Israel, O Israel!

 

4. I will gather and keep you, as a shepherd keeps his flock,

And your soul shall be as a watered garden, a garden!

I have loved you.  Have loved you.
