Lyrics:

Maoz tzur y'shuati l'cha naeh l'shabeach

Tikon beit t'filati v'sham todah n'zabeach.

L'eit tachin matbeach mitzar hamnabeach

Az egmor b'shir mizmor chanukat hamizbeach.

Translation:
Rock of Ages let our song,
Praise thy saving power;
Thou amidst the raging foes,
Wast our shelt'rng tower.

Furious they assailed us,
But Thine arm availed us,
And Thy word broke their sword,
When our own strength failed us.
And Thy word broke their sword,
When our own strength failed us.
