EXPLANATION OF THE GLOSSING SYSTEM
(to understand how I describe the signs in this translation).
Hinei ma tov uma na-im
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is
KNOW-THAT OUR LIFE GOOD, SWEET
Shevet achim gam yachad.
For brothers to dwell together in unity.
IF WE TOGETHER LIKE FAMILY.
Notes: KNOW-THAT - Starts like KNOW but twists and descends, looking almost like DON'T-KNOW except the hand twists down at the end.
To hear the z'mir (song), go to HotShabbat.com, go to "Susan Colin" and click on "Hinei Mah Tov". This is the most frequently used niggun (melody), but there is also a charming Celtic one under "Peter and Ellen Allard".
