KIBUI OROT

LAYIL BA DANCE 

Derech rav g'dud halach

al tehom shvilo pasach

derech ein katzeh lo
ad merosh hasel'a
kol hachatzotzrot kara:

utz'lil tupim nadam, nadam
al aravot nitzat yare'ach

Shar chayal shiro baru'ach

LIGHTS OUT

NIGHT HAS COME 

The troop has marched a long way
To the desert.
Its road passed over a chasm
And led onward.
A road seemingly without an end
Until, from above the crags,
The bugles sounded.

Night has come
To the desert.
Smoke rises from bonfires
And the drum roll has died out.
The moon ignites over the steppes
And its face is blood-red.

A soldier sings his song in the wind
Facing the mountain.
The weary troop rests
In the desert.
He sings, and a drum echoes
Until, from above the crags,
The bugles sound.

Night has come…

Bring peace upon our encampment
In the desert. *
Our troop has passed safely
Across the chasm.
Its formation is unbreakable
Until, from above the crags,
The bugles sound.

Night has come…
