Lyrics - Transliteration

(Hebrew folk song)

Hine mah tov umah-nayim
shevet achim gam yachad

English Translation - Behold how good

Behold how good and how pleasing
if brothers (people) could sit together in unity

Hebrew – הנה מה טוב

הִנֵּה מַה טוֹב וּמַה נָּעִים
שֶׁבֶת אָחִים גַּם יַחַד

  1. Hi, I was wondering if all these traditional Hebrew songs that you have on here are in the public domain? I am wanting to arrange music and sell it and was wondering if there’s any copyright restrictions?
