Song Translations

Jubilate Deo

Be jubilant unto God, Hallelujah!


Peace will come upon us, and on everyone

Hanerot Halalu

We light these lights to remember the miracles, the deliverances, and the wonders which You did for our ancestors


When at night I go to sleep,

Fourteen angels watch do keep,

Two my head are guarding,

Two my feet are guiding;

Two upon my right hand,

Two upon my left hand.

Two who warmly cover

Two who o’er me hover,

Two to whom ’tis given

To guide my steps to heaven.

Selo moje okićeno gorom

My village decorated by mountains

By tall fir trees and green pines

Plant little girl, pines and firs

I will plant roses, red and white

La Paloma

Where did the dove that the sparrow hawk caught go?

Where is the dove that the sparrow hawk caught?

At Ramon’s gate, Oh! Look, I found it plucked.

All in life is false, death is the only truth

For there is where pomp and vanity run out

Why wouldn’t I cry when my mother dies?

I wish I could bring her back to life.

I’m leaving, Maria, I leave the dove there for you,

Open it’s beak and make it eat, I’m leaving the food there.

I’m leaving, I say goodbye even though the gaita is very good.

Beat this drum hard so my sorrow cheers up.


The train comes from the mountains to South Africa. Run to the train! It is coming form the mountains to South Africa.
