Happy New Year - a repost from last year

Wishing everyone a happy new year with one of my favorite Hungarian poems, sung here by the band Kormorán.

A rough translation by Bozót   and myself:

May G-d give us good fortune,
love, a burning furnace,
grains to fill my empty bushel
a hand to shake my lonely hand
A flame to my lamp so I need not
too early in my bed lie
Answers to questions He should send
So my faith won't shatter,
May G-d give us lights,
Instead of funerals - life,
Asking for me is a shameful thing
So without asking He should give

(Original poem: Adjon az Isten by László Nagy)
