Here are the English words:
Speed your journey, my thoughts and my longings,
Speed your journey to mountain and valley,
Where the sweet-scented air breathes a fragrance
O'er the homes that we knew long ago.
To the waters of Jordan bear greeting,
To the down-fallen temples of Zion.
Oh my country, so fair and so wretched,
Oh remembrance of joy and of woe!
Golden harps of the prophets, oh tell me,
Why so silent ye hang from the willow?
Once again sing the songs of our homeland,
Sing again of the days that are past.
We have drunk from the cup of affliction
And have shed bitter tears of repentance.
Oh inspire us, Jehovah, with courage,
So that we may endure to the last.
Best Wishes, Giuseppe
