Dayenu- it would have been enough

Haggadah Section: Songs

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 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.
