The First of May

From the Training Department booklet of the Noar Ha’Oved VeHalomed


One…. Two…

And the hands

Work in the city

Work in the country

Quarry the stone of the mountain

Steer ships

In the air and the sea –

Build the world

Today is a festival for hands

And like a tree sending its branches to the heavens

Carrying them higher and higher

Millions of hands

Labouring hands

From person to person

From nation to nation

The hand is offered

And all the world –

Is one nation
