SHIBOLIM

CHAD MECHEREV 

Chad mecherev,
Chermeshi lo ya'atzor.
Ad ha'erev
Shibolei zahav nik'tzor.

Shibolim, shibolim, shibolim.
Omarim navi hagorenah,
Bar ba'osem ne'egor na,
Shibolim, shibolim, shibolim.

Rav hagodesh,
Bekamah halahav yach.
Zeh hachodesh
Gam nik'tzor vegam nis'mach.

SHEAVES

SHARPER THAN SWORD 

Sharper than a sword
My scythe will never stop.
Flailing til even falls,
To reap our golden crop.

Sheaves, upon sheaves, upon sheaves of corn,
In tied bundles to go to the barn,
Grain in the silo shall we store.
Sheaves, sheaves, and more.

High grows the wheat stook
As blade strikes the grain stalk.
This month is the time for us
To both reap and rejoice.
