"Adir Hu" is THE great Passover Hymn. Since I'm posting this now, it shows how far behind I am!

I didn't forget - I just didn't get it done in time, but, now, here it is!

I want to say THANK YOU to our member Baroqueboy for sending me this score. Jordan, if it were not for your thoughtfulness, I would have had to do this from memory, so, this is dedicated to you, with the hopes that together we can get some more representative examples of the synagogue tradition!

Generally, the custom is to sing one verse in Hebrew, and then three in English, but I've only given the English text here, and only done three verses.

The text is a composite translation from the Hebrew, and the tune is the "traditional" melody. I really do not know the origin, but it certainly "sounds German" to me... ;-)

God of Might, God of Right,
You we give all glory.
Yours all praise in these days
As in ages hoary,
When we hear, year by year,
Freedom's wondrous story.

Now as erst, when you first
Mads't the proclamation,
Warning loud every proud,
Every tyrant nation,
We Your fame still proclaim,
Serve in adoration.

Be with all who in thrall
To their tasks are driven;
By Your power speed the hour
When the chains are riven;
Earth around will resound
Joyful hymns to heaven!
