The Words

Translation


Yevanim nik'b'tsu alai
Azai bimei Chashmanim
U'far'tsu chomot migdalai
V'timu kol hashmanim
Uminotar kankanim
Na'asa nes lashoshanim
B'nei vina, yemei shmona
Kav'u shir ur'nanim
B'nei vina, yemei shmona
Kav'u shir ur'nanim


The greeks gathered aginst me
Back in Hasmonean times
They breached the walls of my towers
And defiles all the ritual oils
From a remaining jug
A miracle was performed for the roses
Men of understanding established eight days
Of song and of rejoicing
Men of understanding established eight days
Of song and of rejoicing
