Dayenu

Dayenu is a song that is part of the Jewish holiday of Passover. The word “Dayenu” means approximately “it would have been enough for us”…. This traditional up-beat Passover song is over one thousand years old…. The song is about being grateful to God for all of the gifts he gave the Jewish people, such as taking them out of slavery, giving them the Torah and Shabbat, and had God only given one of the gifts, it would have still been enough.

Lyrics

Ilu hotzi hotzianu
Hotzianu mimitzrayim,
Hotzianu mimitzrayim
Dayenu

Had he brought us out of Egypt,
Only brought us out of Egypt,
Had he brought us out of Egypt,
Dayenu. (It would have been enough.)

Ilu natan natan lanu
Natan lanu et ha Torah
Natan lanu et ha Torah
Dayenu

Had he given us the Torah,
Only given us the Torah,
Had he given us the Torah,
Dayenu. (It would have been enough.)

 

This version is sung by Messianic Jews.
