Kindle the taper like the steadfast star
ablaze on evening’s forehead o’er the earth,
and add each night a luster till afar
an eight-fold splendor shine above thy (your) hearth.
Clash, Israel, the cymbals, touch the lyre,
blow the brass trumpet and the harsh-tongued horn;
chant psalms of victory till the heart take fire,
the Maccabean spirit leap new-born.
