עֲבָדִים הָיִינּו, הָיִינּו
עַּתָהּ בְנֵי חֹורִין, בְנֵי חֹורִין
עַּתָה, עַּתָהּ בְנֵי חֹורִין, בְנֵי חֹורִין
Avadim hayinu, hayinu
Ata b’nei horin, b’nei horin
Ata ata b’nei horin, b’nei horin.
We were slaves, we were…
Now we are free people
We were slaves
Now, now we are free people, free people.
“Avadim Hayinu” is one of the best-known songs from the Passover seder. These are the first words of the response to the “Four Questions” which point out the ways that the Passover meal is different from all other meals throughout the year.
