LAND, MY LAND

ON THE HILLS OF SHEIKH ABREK 

O land, my land,
Belovéd til I die,
Strong summer winds have dessicated your arid surface.
Betrothed to you am I by the blood
Of he who bled and fell silent
On the hills of Sheikh Abrek and Chartiha.

The dance of the waves
Will form full circles.
Arise, O sun forever over Chartiha.
Through my days and nights,
As a Jew tis my toil to be
On the hills of Sheikh Abrek and Chartiha.

Here the olive treetops
Sing in refrain: This is my home.
Evry stone whispers it knew him once.
My parent is with child,
My harvest is ripening,
On the hills of Sheikh Abrek and Chartiha.

By fiery oath
Are you my captive now;
This heart shall never break its vow,
For freedom was I commanded
By the ordinary man who stands
On the hills of Sheikh Abrek and Chartiha.

FRENCH TRANSLATION

 
Terre, ma terre

Terre, ma terre,
Aimée jusquà ma mort,
Le grand vent de la sécheresse a rendu furieux.
Je me suis fiancéi à toi dans le sang,
De celui qui est tombé et reste silencieux
Sur les collines de Scheikh Abrek et de Chartiha.

La danse des vagues
Tracera des cercles.
Lève-toi Soleil pour toujours à Chartiha,

Jour et nuit, cest à moi,
En tant que juif, de labourer
Sur les collines de Scheikh Abrek et de Chartiha.

Ici, les cimes des oliviers
Chantent : cest ma maison,
Chaque pierre chuchotera : Je lai connu une fois.
Elle a conçu, ma mère,
Mes récoltes mûrissent,
Sur les collines de Scheikh Abrek et de Chartiha.

Jadis, dans un serment de feu,
Tu es devenue ma prisonnière;
Mon cœur ne reviendra point sur son serment,
Car lordre de la liberté
Par lhomme ordinaire fut donné,
Sur les collines de Scheikh Abrek et de Chartiha.
