EXPLANATION OF THE GLOSSING SYSTEM
(to understand how I describe the signs in this translation).
DURING CHANNUKAH, WE LIGHT-CANDLE"each" CONTINUE"over time" EIGHT D-A-Y-S. FOR-FOR? IF WE LOOK-AT-"reg" CHANNUKAH LAMP6, REMIND-us LOOK-BACK REMEMBER. LONG-AGO, YOU HELP-"all" KOHEN GROUP DO MIRACLE, AWESOME THINGS, PAY-OFF OUR DEBT AND FIGHT FOR OUR FOREFATHERS DURING THIS TIME-PERIOD. WAR FINISH, JEWISH PEOPLE OPPRESSION-OFF. USE LIGHT OTHER REASON, FORBIDDEN. LOOK-AT FOR-FOR? EXPRESS THANKS AND PRAISE FOR YOUR-rt GREAT NAME, FOR YOUR MIRACLES, AWESOME THINGS, AND HOW YOU-rt SAVE US.
Notes: LAMP -  flicks middle finger against chin.
KOHEN - The hands are held with thumbs touching, POs face away from signer, and the fingers are held together but split between the middle and ring fingers, like Mr. Spock on Star Trek (Leonard Nemoy is a cohen and got the gesture from this one which is used to bless the people during holidays).
OPPRESSION-OFF - DH [B] lifts upwards and off from contacting [S], PO > DS while mouthing "off".
Hanerot halalu anachnu madlikin
Al hanissim ve'al haniflaot
Al hatshu-ot ve'al hamilchamot
Bayamim hahem, bazman hazeh
Al yedey kohanecha hakdoshim.
Vechol shmonat yemey Chanukah
Hanerot halalu kodesh hem,
Ve-ein lanu reshut lehishtamesh bahem
Ela lirotam bilvad
Kedai lehodot leshimcha
Al nissecha veal nifleotecha ve-al yeshuotecha.
We light these lights
For the miracles and the wonders,
For the redemption and the battles
That you made for our forefathers
In those days at this season,
Through your holy priests.
During all eight days of Chanukah
These lights are sacred
And we are not permitted to make
Ordinary use of them,
But only to look at them;
In order to express thanks
And praise to Your great Name
For your miracles, Your wonders
And your salvations.
To hear a performance of this song with a lovely, but less often used melody, go to Hanerot Hallalu.
