Mi Yimalel (Who Can Retell?)
Who can retell the stories of Hanukkah? Well, we can sing about them.
In days of yore in Israel's ancient land
Brave Maccabeus led the faithful band
But now all Israel must as one arise
Redeem itself through deed and sacrifice.
Mi yimalel gevurot Yisrael,
Otan mi yimne?
Hen be'chol dor yakum ha'gibor
Ba'yamim ha'hem ba'zman ha'ze
Maccabi moshia u'fode
U'v'yameinu kol am Yisrael
Yitached yakum ve'yigael!
