MY HOUSE IS HERE/I WAS BORN HERE
Here is my home, here I was born
On the plain which is by the shore.
Here are the friends who I grew up with
And I have no other place in the world.
I have no other place in the world.
Here is my home, here I played
in the lowland which is near the mountain
here I drank water from the well
and planted grass in the desert
and planted grass in the desert.
Here I was born
here my children were born to me.
here I built my house - with my own two hands
here, you're also with me
and here are all of my thousand friends
and after 2,000 years -
my wanderings are over.
Here I played all of my songs
and went on a night journey
here in my youth I defended
the land of my God
the land of my God.
Here I set my table
A piece of bread, a fresh flower
I opened the door to my neighbors
And whoever comes, we'll greet “Ahalan!*”
And whoever comes, we'll greet “Ahalan!”
