The anthem's theme revolves aroond the nearly 2000-year-auld hope o the Jewish fowk tae be a free an sovereign fowk in the Land o Israel, a naitional dream that wad eventually be realized wi the foondin o the modren State o Israel in 1948.

In Laitin letters Scots Version
Kol ‘od balleivav penimah sae lang as in the hert, 'ithin,
Nefesh yehudi homiyah, A Jewish saul still glaggers,
Ul(e)fa’atei mizrach kadimah, An forrit, tae the droddums o the east,
‘Ayin letziyon tzofiyah; A ee still gaups forrit Israel;
 
‘Od lo avdah tikvateinu, Oor howp is nocht yet lost,
Hatikvah bat shnot alpayim, The howp o twa thoosand towmonds,
Lihyot ‘am chofshi be’artzeinu, Tae be a lowse fowk in oor kintra,
Eretz-tziyon (v)'Y(e)rushalayim. The kinta o Israel an Jerusalem.
