NES CHANUKAH

LACHANUKAH 

Hayo haya melech rasha'
Charbo chadah umeluteshet
Mihu?
Antiochus.

Ba harasha', ba im hag'dudim
Ba venilcham im hay'hudim -
Antiochus

Az kam gibor, sh'mo Yehudah
Hitzil artzo hachamudah
Mihu?
Hamaccabi!

Ba vehidlik menorah
Velay'hudim hay'tah orah,
Matai?
Bachanukah!

A MIRACLE OF CHANUKAH

TO CHANUKAH

Once there was an evil king
Whose sword was sharp and shining.
Who was he?
Antiochus.

This evil man with his battalions galore
Came against the Jews and made war -
Antiochus.

Up rose a hero named Yehuda
Who saved his sweet land of Judah.
Who was he?
The Maccabee!

He came and lit the Temple menorah
And the Jewish had light from its aura.
When was this?
On Chanukah!
