HAYO, HAYA Lyrics - Peter, Paul & Mary

Review The Song (1)

Hayo, haya, melech rasha, melech rasha.
Charbo chada, umlutasha, umlutasha
Mihu? Antiochus, Antiochus.

Let us remember reign of terror, reign of terror
King who murdered pain forever, pain forever
Who then? Antiochus, Antiochus
Antiochus, Antiochus

The blood he spilled, Jerusalem, Jerusalem
So many killed, gone all of them, gone all of them
Who then? Antiochus, Antiochus

Our hearts he broke, he burned the Torah, burned the Torah
Ash and smoke, the crushed menorah, crushed menorah
Who then? Antiochus, Antiochus

Arise our hero, Judah save us, Judah save us
Prize so dear, the vict'ry gave us, freedom gave us
Who then? Macabeus, Macabeus

Oh sing our songs and praise the Torah, praise the Torah
Right the wrongs and light menorah, light menorah
When then? Chanukah, Chanukah

Chanukah, Freedom and Daniel | Reviewer: Jim Wetterau | 9/14/2008

This is a wonderful performance of Hayo Haya by Peter, Paul and Mary accompanied by the New York Choral Society.

The words remind us of the fight for religious freedom and holiness and the desecration of Solomon's temple in Jerusalem. It also reminds us that this was predicted by the prophet Daniel when he had a vision of exactly this desecration.

We are reminded that we should not let faith go out and that Judas Maccabeus fought for exactly that right of religious practice.
