BASKETS ARE ON OUR SHOULDERS

OUR BASKETS 

Laden baskets on our shoulders,
Floral circlets round our heads
From lands ends we come,
First fruits to bear in .
From Judea and Samaria
From the Emek and Galilee.
Clear a path for us,
First fruits we bear
Beat the drum, blow the flute!

Our fields and gardens
Brought forth their yield,
Our vineyards and our toil -
Their harvests plentiful:
Of figs, apples,
Grapes and almonds.
Clear a path for us,
First fruits we bear
Beat the drum, blow the flute!

How goodly are our dance circles,
How comely our parading columns!
The praise of the land is ours.
First fruits we have borne -
From the Golan, Bashan,
Negev and Jordan Valley!
Clear a path for us,
First fruits we bear
Beat the drum, blow the flute!

SINGABLE ENGLISH TRANSLATION

 

Our heads are decked with garlands
Baskets heaped to the brim
From far and near were coming
Were bringing Bikurim

From the Emek
From the Jordan and Sharon
From Judea
From Galil and Chermon
Help and clear the way
This is pilgrims day

Beat, beat, beat the drum
Sound the flute and sing
Beat, beat, beat the drum
First of fruits we bring
