Subject: ADD: Lomir alle freilach zein
Hi Fedele,

My mother sang this song to me before I spoke English.

Lomir alle freilach zein lomir alle zingen (2x)
Zingen far sholem, zingen far broit,
Boyen a morgen uhn hartz un uhn noit,
Zingen far sholem, zingen far broit,
Boyen a morgen far sholem.

Let us all be happy, let us all sing,
Sing for peace, sing for bread,
Build a morning without heartache without strife,
Sing for peace, sing for bread,
Build a morning of peace.

It's one of my earliest memories.
