help! hebrew....

hello...yes, this is a "how do you say?" and a long one, at that!

i am trying to gather together both the hebrew and the english translation of the "words" to the "dayenu" part of the passover seder.  i have a hebrew transliteration, but since i don't speak hebrew, i'm not sure what the correct translation is...and every english translation that i find online seems to have different numbers of lines!  thus i can't fit any english translation to the transliteration i already have.

thus the request is:  could you either tell me what the following hebrew transliteration says in english (or spanish, since that's the language it needs to go into eventually....), OR offer up another version in both hebrew transliteration and english?

thank you VERY much!!!
