I forgot to include the intended meaning again; here it is in case I wrote anything that’s so far off it’s hard to understand:

On this world sometimes we laugh and sometimes we cry,
And sometimes we hope something, or we are being frightened.
We share the world with all, and we certainly need to know it:
This world, a little world, our world, is small!

(I just realized that if the lack of an overt object preceding {wISovnISbej maH} is problematic, this could be changed to {ngoD wISovnIS maH} easily.)

Refrain:
This world is certainly very small, isn’t it?
The little world is certainly very small, isn’t it?
Our world is certainly very small, isn’t it?
Yes, it is certainly very small!

Our world has only one moon and one yellow/green/blue sun,
and when you see a person who smiles, you have a friend.
The big mountains are certainly dividing the countryside, and the oceans are very large,
But our world is certainly very small.

(Refrain, same as before)
