ANU NOS'IM LAPIDIM

Anu nos'im lapidim
Beleilot afeilim.
Zorchim hash'vilim mitachat ragleinu
Umi asher leiv lo
Hatzamei la'or -
Yissa et einav velibo eileinu
La'or veyavo!

Ness lo karah lanu -
Pach shemen lo matzanu.
La'emek halachnu, haharah alinu,
Ma'ayanot ha'orot
Hag'nuzim gilinu.

Ness lo karah lanu -
Pach shemen lo matzanu.
Basela chatzavnu ad dam -
Vayehi or!

WE ARE CARRYING TORCHES

We carry our torches
In darkest depths of night.
The paths beneath our feet are bright.
Anyone who has a heart
Which for light is parched
Should lift up to us his eyes and heart.
Join us, towards the light!

No miracle befell us -
No cruse of oil found by us.
We walked to vale, climbed mountain high,
And there springs unearthed
Of hidden lights of yore.

No miracle befell us -
No cruse of oil found by us.
We quarried rock until we bled -
And then there was light!
