VEHI SHE'AMDAH


 

Vehi she'amdah
l'avoteinu velanu.

She'lo echad bilvad
amad aleinu lechaloteinu.

Ela sheb'chol dor vador
omdim aleinu lechaloteinu.

Vehakadosh baruch hu
matzileinu miyadam.

THIS IS THAT PROMISE


And this is that (promise)
which sustained our fathers and us.

That it is not one (enemy) alone
that stood up against us to destroy us.

But that in each generation there are those
standing up against us to destroy us.

But the Holy One Blessed Be He
saves us from their hand.
