The Telling
By Shimrit Hanes ©2001

On the darkest of Egyptian nights,
Stand rows of small houses flickering firelight
Every man with staff in hand, all feet are shod,
We await the salvation of our G-d

Too many years we have eaten of the bread of harsh affliction
In the bitter yoke of bondage we have lived
We have lived, we have labored, we have died

Come destroying angel we are waiting, Your shadow will not fall upon our door
For our spotless lamb is slain,
Our doorposts bear the crimson stain
You must pass over our home

On the darkest of Egyptian mornings, Pharoh finally heeds G-ds warning
His son and Egypt’s firstborn have been slain
If he’d listened at the first,
He wouldn’t have to bear this pain

Rise up sons of Yisrael,
Get out from among my people
Go and worship the Lord your G-d,
And pra---ay for me

Halle halleluyah, Halleluyah, (repeat)
Our spotless lamb is slain, Our hearts now bear the stain
The Lord our G-d has set us free (repeat all of this section)

Our spotless lamb is slain, Our hearts now bear the stain
The lamb of G-d has set us free,
The lamb of G-d..... Has set us free
