My home is here, America,
My Promised Land, my Yisrael.
What God gave to my ancestors,
He now gives equally to all.

My Promised Land, my Yisrael,
Is homeland to the human race.
He now gives equally to all
A holy land, a sacred place;

Is homeland to the human race,
The world's long longed-for world-to-be,
A holy land, a sacred place,
Where all alike are safe and free.

The world's long longed-for world-to-be,
What God gave to my ancestors,
Where all alike are safe and free:
My home is here, America!
