HAVA NARIMA

Hava narima
Ness va'avukah -
Yachad po nashirah
Shir haChanukah

Maccabim anachnu,
Digleinu ram, nachon,
Bayevanim nilchamnu
Velanu hanitzachon.

Perach el perach
Zeir gadol nish'zor,
Lerosh hamenatze'ach
Maccabi gibor.

LET'S RAISE ALOFT

Let's raise aloft
The standard and the torch -
And here sing in unison
The Chanukah refrain.

The Maccabees are we
Our flag is high, and true,
The mighty Greeks we fought
And claimed our victory.

Flower by flower
A bouquet we'll gather
As a coronet for
The mighty Maccabee.
