A Medieval addition to the Haggadah, this hymn originally contained fifteen verses mirroring the fifteen steps in the Seder.
How many are the gifts God bestowed upon us! Had God:
Brought us out of Egypt and not divided the sea for us
Divided the sea and not permitted us to cross on dry land,
Permitted us to cross on dry land and not sustained us for forty years in the desert,
Sustained us for forty years in the desert and not fed us with manna
Fed us with manna and not given us the Sabbath
Given us the Sabbath and not brought us to Mount Sinai
Brought us to Mount Sinai and not given us the Torah
Dayenu Dayenu Dayenu Dayenu Dayenu
Day, dayenu, day, dayenu, day, dayenu, dayenu, dayenu...
Ilu hotsi hotsianu, hotsianu mi-Mitzrayim, hotisanu mi-Mitzrayim, Dayenu Ilu natan natan lanu, natan lanu et ha-Shabbat, natan lanu et ha-Shabbat, Dayenu. Ilu natan natan lanu, natan lanu et ha-Torah, natan lanu et ha-Torah, Dayenu.
