How Lucky are we that we have lights so that we can see
Although the day is done
What a miracle that a spark lifts these candles out of the dark
Every evening, one by one
Until the end of Hanukkah, of Hanukkah

With the jingle bells and the toys
And the TV shows and noise
It's easy to forget
At the end of the day
Our whole family will say
These words for Hanukkah

Baruch atah Adonai, eloheinu
Melech ha'olam
Asher kid'shanu, b'mitz'votav v'tzivanu l'hadlik ner shel Hanukkah

Light the candles for Hanukkah, for Hanukkah
We remember how Maccabees
Fought so all of us could be free
And so we celebrate on this festival of the lights
There's a joyful time every night
But we illuminate the candles of Hanukkah, of Hanukkah

Baruch atah Adonai Eloheinu melech ha'olam
She'asa niseem la'avoteinu bayamim haheim baz'man hazeh

Hanukkah
Hanukkah
