Mi Yemalel?

   

Mi Yemalel?

Mi yemalel g'vurot Yisrael?
Otan mi yimneh?
Hen bekohl dor ya kum hagibor goel haam.

Sh'ma Bayamim hahem baz'man hazeh,
Makabi moshia ufodeh,
U v'ya memi kol am Yisrael,
Yit abed yakum lehigael.

Mi yemalel g'vurot Yisrael?
Otan mi yimneh?
Hen bekohl dor ya kum hagibor goel haam.

 

Who Can Retell?

Who can tell the things that befall us?
Who can count them?
In every age a hero or sage came to our aid!

Hark!  In days of yore, in Israel's ancient land,
Brave Maccabeas led the faithful band.
But now all Israel must as one arise.
Redeem itself through deed and sacrifice.

Who can tell the things that befall us?
Who can count them?
In every age a hero or sage came to our aid!

   


"Hear O'Israel! The Lord is our G-d, the Lord is One!"
