Title: In a sheyne zumer nakht (On a Beautiful Summer Night)
Transcription: Miriam Isaacs
Translation: Miriam Isaacs

Information: Singer Pinchas Hale, age 27 from Czechoslovakia, was in America for only 2 weeks when Stonehill recorded him.



In a sheyne zumer nakht
Vi  der mizrekh ligt in trakht
Sheyt a khalutz aynzam auf der vakh
In land fun marantsn, marantsn  2x.
dort vi khalutsim hora tantsn
dort vi palmen bliyen
es benkt zikh nokh di berg tsiyon

In a beautiful summer night,
Where the east lies and ponders
There stands a (Zionist) scout, at his watch
In the land of oranges,
where scouts dance a hora.
where the palms bloom,  
I long for the hills of Zion.
