Song of Work and Labour

Lyrics: Chaim Nachman Bialik

Music: Nachum Hardi

Who will save us from hunger? 
Who will feed us with the most bread? 
And who will offer us a glass of milk to drink?

And who will offer us a glass of milk to drink?

Who do we thank and who do we bless? 
Work and labour!


Who will offer us cover from the cold? 
And who will give us light in the darkness?

And who will take water from the well?

And who will take water from the well? 
Who do we thank and who do we bless? 
Work and labour!

 

And who planted trees in the garden, 
For fruit and shade, every species

And in the fields sowed the seeds of grain

And in the fields sowed the seeds of grain?

Who do we thank and who do we bless? 
Work and labour!


Who prepared a corner for us on the roof?

A fence for a garden, for a vineyard, 
And who worked and took care of Shabbat, and the festivals 
Who do we thank and who do we bless? 
Work and labour!

 

Therefore, we will work and we will labour 
Always, every day of the week. 
The burden is heavy, the burden is pleasant 
And during rest we will sing out loud

Sing of thanks, sing of a blessing

For work and labour.
