YESH LI GAN

Yesh li gan uv'er yesh li
va'alai be'eri talui dli
midei shabat ba machamadi
mayim zakim yesht mikadi.

Kol ha'olam yeshen - has!
Nam tapu'ach va'agas
imi namah, nir'dam avi
erim rak ani ul'vavi.

Vehadli kil'vavi er
notef paz el pi habe'er
notef paz venotef bedolach:
dodi holech, dodi holech.

Has, bagan nizda'aza nof -
dodi ba im pirkes of?
Dodi, dodi! - chush machamadi
ein bechatzer ish mil'vadi.

I HAVE A GARDEN

I have a garden and a well too,
And a bucket hangs over the well;
Every Sabbath my beloved comes,
To drink pure water from my jug.

Hush! - the whole world sleeps
Both the apple and the pear;
My mother slumbers, my father too has fallen asleep,
Only my my heart and I are awake.

And the bucket, like my heart, is awake
Dripping gold into the well,
Dripping gold, and dripping crystal:
My beloved is coming, my beloved comes.

Hush, the tree boughs shake -
Does my beloved come or did a bird tremble?
My beloved, my beloved! - hurry my dearest,
There is no one in the yard but me.
