Default Singing Chanukah Menorah candles

First, from right to left, omitting the middle candle, click on, and then click off, each individual candle to see what they each do separately, and then click on the Shamas candle (that's the red one in the middle).

Singing Chanukah Menorah candles


The Chanukah Menorah candles are singing "Mi Yemalel" ("Who Can Retell?")

The transliteration (Hebrew written in English):

Mi yemalel g'vurot Yisra-el,
Otan mi yimneh?
Hen b'khol dor yakum hagibor,
Go-el ha-am.

Mi yemalel g'vurot Yisra-el,
Otan mi yimneh?
Hen b'khol dor yakum hagibor,
Go-el ha-am.

Sh'ma! Bayamim hahem bazman hazeh,
Makabi moshiyah ufodeh -
Uv'yamenu kol am Yisra-el,
Yit'ahed, yakum veyiga-el.

Mi yemalel g'vurot Yisra-el,
Otan mi yimneh?
Hen b'khol dor yakum hagibor,
Go-el ha-am.


A less than literal, but singable translation:

Who can retell,
the things that befell us,
Who can count them?
In every age a hero or sage,
Came to our aid.

Hark! In days of yore in
Israel's ancient land,
Brave Maccabeus led the
faithful band.
But now all Israel must as one
arise,
Redeem itself through deed and
sacrifice.

Who can retell,
the things that befell us,
Who can count them?
In every age a hero or sage,
Came to our aid.
