Lif’amim nidme she’en tikva
Vehakol nir’e kol kach afel velo yadu’a
Haprachim od lo parchu bagan uvasade
Uva’erev rak maka haruach
Az bo’u venadlik beyachad ner, ner…

Light a candle, light a candle with me
A thousand candles in the dark will open our hearts
Light a candle, light a candle with me
A thousand candles in the dark will open our hearts

Lif’amim nir’e shehamachar
Lo yavi po nechama labechi velatsa’ar
Vehalaila ha’aroch nimshach bli havtacha
Veha’afela chada kata’ar
Az bo’u venadlik beyachad ner, ner…

Light a candle, light a candle with me
A thousand candles in the dark will open our hearts
Light a candle, light a candle with me
A thousand candles in the dark will open our hearts

Light all the candles
Let’s light the candles everywhere
Just look at me and take my hand
The heat of love will glow again

Light a candle, light a candle with me
A thousand candles in the dark will open our hearts
Light a candle, light a candle with me
A thousand candles in the dark will open our hearts

Hebrew script

לפעמים נדמה שאין תקווה
והכל נראה כל כך אפל ולא ידוע
הפרחים עוד לא פרחו בגן ובשדה
ובערב רק מכה הרוח
…אז בואו ונדליק ביחד נר, נר

Light a candle, light a candle with me
A thousand candles in the dark will open our hearts
Light a candle, light a candle with me
A thousand candles in the dark will open our hearts

לפעמים נראה שהמחר
לא יביא פה נחמה לבכי ולצער
והלילה הארוך נמשך בלי הבטחה
והאפלה חדה כתער
…אז בואו ונדליק ביחד נר, נר

Light a candle, light a candle with me
A thousand candles in the dark will open our hearts
Light a candle, light a candle with me
A thousand candles in the dark will open our hearts

Light all the candles
Let’s light the candles everywhere
Just look at me and take my hand
The heat of love will glow again

Light a candle, light a candle with me
A thousand candles in the dark will open our hearts
Light a candle, light a candle with me
A thousand candles in the dark will open our hearts

Translation

Sometimes it seems as if there is no hope
And everything looks so dark and unknown
The flowers have yet to bloom in the garden and in the field
And in the evening only the wind blows
So let’s light a candle together, candle…

Light a candle, light a candle with me
A thousand candles in the dark will open our hearts
Light a candle, light a candle with me
A thousand candles in the dark will open our hearts

Sometimes it seems as if tomorrow
Won’t bring any comfort here to the crying and the sorrow
And the long night goes on without a promise
And the darkness is sharp as a razor
So let’s light a candle together, candle…

Light a candle, light a candle with me
A thousand candles in the dark will open our hearts
Light a candle, light a candle with me
A thousand candles in the dark will open our hearts

Light all the candles
Let’s light the candles everywhere
Just look at me and take my hand
The heat of love will glow again

Light a candle, light a candle with me
A thousand candles in the dark will open our hearts
Light a candle, light a candle with me
A thousand candles in the dark will open our hearts
