Mordechai Amitay

Tonight we tell again

Tonight we tell again, as we do each and every year
That same ancient tale, that same old story
About the miracle of Chanukah, about the rebels - Maccabees fighting the Greeks
And heroism of the smallest child of the seven children

How the small jar, sufficed for all eight days
About those miracles that could also happen now sometimes.....
Because there are those who also want to extinguish the light now
Because there are conquerors and oppressors everywhere and in every generation
However that small light in the window reminds us and alludes
That always, when we really want it, we can also make the miracle happen
