1 Fray shvimen shifn af yamen
Di mastn flatern tsum blo

Ikh shtey af der vakh un mayn mamen

Bahaltn muz ikh afn dno

 

Di shif muz in tifn antrinen

Es zol undz keyner nit gefinen

O shturem vint,

O derbreng mame’n kind

Gikh tsum breg dem gegartn

Genug shoyn gevart!

 

S’vet geshen, s’vet geshen

Un mir ale veln vider zayn tsuzamen


Ir vet zen, ir vet zen

Oykh undzer shif vet shvimen fray af ale yamen

 

Undzer heyliker farlang

Um tsu kern zikh in land fun di neviim

 

Vet mekuyem vern,

kh’her shoyn di gezangen


Vi men bentsht undz: brukhim-habaim

 

2 Gebroyst hot der yam dan fun tsorn

Mit farpaynikte fun veg

Dokh zaynen mir yinger gevorn

Ven mir hobn derzen dem breg

 

Un khotsh bin geven dan farmatert

Hob ikh zikh vi a fon tseflatert

Shalom! mir rufn

Nor plutsem krigshifn bafaln!

Oys glik!

Men firt undz tsurik!

 

Nor s’vet geshen! S’muz geshen!

Un mir ale veln vider zayn tsuzamen

Ir vet zen, ir vet zen

Oykh undzer shif vet shvimen fray af ale yamen

Undzer heyliker farlang

Um tsu kern zikh in land fun di neviim

Vet mekuyem vern,

kh’her shoyn di gezangen


Vi men bentsht undz: brukhim-habaim

1 Ships sail freely on the sea

The sails flutter in the blue

I stay on watch and my mother

I must hide in the hold

 

 

The ship must flee on the deep

No one must find us

O storm wind

O bring mother and child

Quickly to the desired shore

Enough waiting!

 

It will happen, it will happen

And we all will be together again

You will see, you will see

Our ship also will sail freely on all the seas

 

 

 

Our holy longing

To return to the land of the prophets

 

It will be /it will materialize

I hear already the song

As they bless us Welcome/Blessed are those who come

 

 

2 The sea was stormed with anger

with the torment of the journey

Yet we became younger

When we saw the shore

 

And although I was exhausted

I waved like a flag

Shalom!/Hello! we call

But suddenly battleships fall upon us

Gone is our luck

They are sending us back

 

But … It will happen… It must happen

And we all will be together again

You will see, you will see

Our ship also will sail freely on all the seas

Our holy longing

To return to the land of the prophets

 

It will be/it will materialize

I hear already the song

As they bless us Welcome/Blessed are those who come
