'Avo' vam, 'avo' vam, 'odeh yah.
Pitchu li sha'arey tsedek.
'Avo' vam, 'odeh.
Zeh hasha'ar.
'Avo' vam, 'odeh yah.

Zing a loyb tsu lebn, zing a loyb.
Effen oyf dem toyer fun yosher.
Tsuzammen zingt a loyb.
Effen oyf un gibt tsedakah.
Tsuzammen zingt a loyb
der veg fun freiheit.
Tsuzammen zingt a loyb.

From Psalm 188. "Open up the gates of justice, sing a song to life, give tsedakah (do good works, be generous) and walk the path of freedom."
