ELI ELI 
HALICHAH LEKESARIYAH 

Eli, Eli

Shelo yigamer le'olam:
Hachol vehayam

Rishrush shel hamayim
Berak hashamayim

Tefilat ha'adam.

MY GOD, MY GOD 
WALK TO CAESARIA 

My God, My God

May these things never end:
The sand and the sea

The rustle of the water
The lightning in the sky

Man's prayer.

Note:
Hannah Senesh (1921-1944) went to Israel from Hungary at age 18. She studied at the agricultural school at Nahalal and joined kibbutz Sdot-Yam.

In 1943, at the height of World War II, she volunteered to go into Nazi-controlled areas in Europe to save Jewish lives. In 1944 she parachuted into Yugoslavia. After staying with the partisans, she went to Hungary, where she was discovered and executed by the Germans. She is known both for her heroism and her poetry.

FA CHE NON FINISCA GIAMMA

Oh Dio, Buon Dio,

Fa che non finisca giammai
la sabbia del mare,

il suo sciabordare,
il lampo, il tuonare,

il nostro pregar

ELI, ELI

Eli, Eli
I pray that it never will end.
The sand and the sea
and the waves breaking and sighing
and high over the water
the wind blowing free.

The lightning and rain and the darkness descending
and ever and ever the nature of man.

(As sung by Chaim Topol)
