BANU CHOSHECH LEGARESH

Banu choshech legaresh,
beyadeinu or va'esh.
Kol echad hu or katan,
vechulanu or eitan.

Surah choshech, hal'ah sh'chor!
Surah mipnei ha'or!

Tzil-tzil-tzil bapa'amonim,
mi anachnu? - savivonim.
Lanu regel achat,
im nipol - gam lo nifchad.

Surah choshech, hal'ah sh'chor!
Surah mipnei ha'or!

Anu shovavim g'dolim,
alizim veholelim -
ach ned'a yafeh me'od
lesaper, lashir, lirkod.

Surah choshech, hal'ah sh'chor!
Surah mipnei ha'or!

WE CAME TO DRIVE AWAY THE DARKNESS

We came to drive away the darkness
in our hands is light and fire.
Everyone's a small light,
and all of us are a firm light.

Fight darkness, further blackness!
Fight because of the light!

Tzil-tzil-tzil in the bells,
who are we? - spinning tops.
We have one leg,
if we fall - we still won't fear.

Fight darkness, further blackness!
Fight because of the light!

We're big mischievous kids,
merry and praise-giving -
but we'll know very nicely
to retell, to sing, to dance.

Fight darkness, further blackness!
Fight because of the light!
