Hashivenu hashivenu adonai, elecha,
venashuva venashuva,
Hadesh, Hadesh yamenu kekedem

Turn us back, turn us back, O LORD to You
and we will turn, and we will turn
renew, renew our days as before
(Lamentations 5:21)

Hebrew – השיבנו

הֲשִׁיבֵנוּ, הֲשִׁיבֵנוּ, יְהוָה אֵלֶיךָ,
וְנָשׁוּבָה, וְנָשׁוּבָה,
חַדֵּשׁ, חַדֵּשׁ, יָמֵינוּ כְּקֶדֶם.
