HORA MEDURAH

CAMPFIRE HORA

Banu b'li kol vachol
Anu ani'yei etmol
Lanu hagoral masar
Et milyonei hamachar

Tzei na lama'agal
Ten na shir mizmor ladal
Heina ne'esfu lirkod
Bnei ha'oni vehashot

Hora ali, ali
Esh hadliki beleili
Tehora, rabat ora
Hora medurah!

We came with nothing ‎
We, the poor of yesterday. ‎
To us, fate gave ‎
The millions of tomorrow. ‎

Come out to the circle, ‎
Let’s have a song for the poor. ‎
Here have gathered to dance, ‎
The sons of poverty and the whip. ‎

Hora arise, arise! ‎
Light a fire in my night.‎
Pure and full of light,‎
Campfire hora!‎

HORA DA FOGUEIRA

Viemos sem nada
somos os pobres de ontem
o destino nos mandou
os milhões de amanhã

Refrão
Hora ali, ali
acenda um fogo na minha noite
Torá cheia de luz
hora da fogueira

Saia para a roda
dê uma canção para o pobre.
Aqui se juntaram para dançar
filhos da pobreza e do chicote.

Refrão

ホラ・メドゥラー キャンプ ファイアーでのホラの踊り

私達は、何にも持たずにやって来た
私達は、昨日は貧しかった
私達には、運命のメッセージがあった
明日には、何百万となるという

さあ輪の外に出て
貧しき者への詩を歌おう
ほら、ここに踊りが集められた
貧困と鞭打ちの子供達よ

上へ、上へとホラの踊り
私の夜に火を灯して
多くの光に満たされてホラを踊ろう
キャンプ ファイアーのホラの踊り

CAMPFIRE HORA

We've come to build the land
Clear away the rocks and sand.
Plant gardens, crops and trees
Swaying in the desert breeze.

Work hard the whole day long
And the nights we fill with song.
Come join us hand in hand
Let's rebuild our Holy Land.

Hora, Ali, Ali,
Dance around the fire with me.
We sing so joyfully,
Hora Medurah!

Hora, Ali, Ali,
Dance around the fire with me.
We sing so joyfully,
Hora Medurah!
