Mi Yimalel (Who Can Retell?)

Who can retell the stories of Hanukkah? Well, we can sing about them.

English:
Who can retell the things that befell us,
Who can count them?
In every age, a hero or sage
Came to our aid.

    Hark!
    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.

Hebrew:
Mi yimalel gevurot Yisrael,
Otan mi yimne?
Hen be’chol dor yakum ha’gibor
Goel ha’am.

    Shma!
    Ba’yamim ha’hem ba’zman ha’ze
    Maccabi moshia u’fode
    U’v’yameinu kol am Yisrael
    Yitached yakum ve’yigael!


מי ימלל גבורות ישראל
אותן מי ימנה
הן בכל דור יקום הגיבור
גואל העם


שמע
בימים ההם בזמן הזה
מכבי מושיע ופודה
ובימינו כל עם ישראל
יתאחד, יקום ויגאל
