Lyrics:

רבות עבר העם הזה בדרך
ואני הולך עם ראש למעלה
כל אחד הוא בן או בת של מלך
כך היה וככה זה גם הלאה
יהודי עם נשמה בוערת
בכל מקום, ובכל ארץ
לא רוצה שיהיה אחרת
יהודי אני
זה משהוא נצחי

בני אברהם יצחק ויעקוב
בני שרה רבקה רחל ולאה
{Translation – The children of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the children of Sarah, Rivka, Rachel and Leah}

עברי אנכי ואת ה’ אלקי השמים אני ירא
(’יונה א’ ט)
{Translation – I am a Hebrew (a Jew) and the L-rd, G-d of the heavens [is The One] I fear. – Jonah, 1:9}

A little bit of history I’ve been through
Ask me where I’m from, and I will tell you
I’m a Jew and every Jew’s a proud Jew
Not just me, my sisters and my brothers
Never be ashamed to be a proud Jew
It’s not what you’ve done, it’s how He made you
So sing this song and spread the pride around you
Yehudi Ani, eternally!

בני אברהם יצחק ויעקוב
בני שרה רבקה רחל ולאה

עברי אנכי ואת ה’ אלקי השמים אני ירא

I’m a Jew and I’m proud
And I’ll sing it out loud
‘Cuz forever and ever
That’s what I’ll be
I’m a Jew and I’m proud
And without a doubt
Hashem is always watching over me
