BO'I IMA

ZA OKOSHKOM SVETU MALO 

Kol ha'or mizman halach lo,
al telchi pit'om gam at.
Bo'i ima, bo'i ima,
bo'i shvi iti me'at.

Ba'etzim makeh haru'ach,
veyadaich ko chamot.
Al telchi, sapri li ima
eich ba'im hachalomot.

Im pit'om mal'ach yofi'a,
el chadri yavo bile'at,
boi ima, boi ima,
vetir'i oto gam at.

Lo, eini poched bachoshech,
ve'eini ro'ed bich'lal.
Boi ima, boi ima,
shvi iti ad she'egdal.

COME, MOTHER

 

All the light is long gone,
don't you leave too.
Come, mother, come mother,
come sit with me a bit.

The wind strikes the trees,
and your hands are so warm.
Do not go, tell me mother
how do dreams come (to us).

If suddenly an angel appears,
comes to my room stealthily,
come mother, come mother,
come see it too.

No, I'm not scared in the dark,
and I don't tremble at all.
Come mother, come mother,
sit with me until I grow up.
