Oh Kinderland, you magic land
Under free skies
We come here to rest,
To get strong and to renew ourselves

For children it is a heaven
We play here,

We live here joyfully

The Second Verse.

Mit zun un feld un fraye nakht
Du bist undz azoy tayer
Freylekh munter zingt dos lid
An arbets lid a nayer

Oh kinder, kinder, kinderland
Far kinder a ganeydn
Mir shpiln zikh,

Mir lebn do in freydn

With sun and fields and free nights
You are so dear to us
Happily and heartily sing this song
A new worker's song

Oh kinder kinder Kinderland
For children it is a heaven
We play here,
we learn here
We live here joyfully
