Passover Songs

Hello and happy Feast of Unleavened Bread! It’s Passover time again–time to remember when we were freed from slavery in Egypt and when we were freed from sin by Yeshua’s blood. This year I recounted the story by song, and I thought I’d share the lyrics I wrote.

**********
This first song, a duet with my sister, was about the distinction made between the Israelites and the Egyptians during the plague of flies.

Chosen Me

Yehovah, my El, all now can see
The difference so clearly
That we are precious in Your eyes
You’d fight to make us free

I’ve heard of You for many years
And I knew that You could
Save us by Your mighty arm
But I didn’t know You would

(Chorus)
That You would hear our feeble cry
And see our slavery
That You have loved and chosen us
That You have chosen me
Chosen me
Chosen me
Chosen me

Yehovah, almost all we’ve known
Are sufferings and pain
Why would You ever care for us
And know us by our names?

Why when men on earth are cruel
Would You be so gracious
That You would guard the covenant
That You  have made with us

Yehovah my El, how can it be
That You have chosen me?

**********
This next song is in memory of the plague of darkness–and Yehovah’s light. Scriptures referenced include: Revelation 4:8; Psalm 118:27; Lamentations 3:23; and Isaiah 9:2.

A Great Light

Hear me, oh please, Yah, hear my cry
Listen from Your great throne on high!
Why will Pharaoh not let us go?
When will these plagues end; I don’t know!

But You bring night to day
And with that hope I’ll say

Those walking in the dark
Have seen a great light
To those who sit in chains
Yah has sent a savior
He keeps His promises
Great is Your faithfulness
To us!

My hope, oh Yah, is in Your light
So long we’ve lived in darkest night
To You I cried in toil and pain
And You have acted; You shall reign!

You’ve brought Egypt to shame
And glorified Your Name

Those walking in the dark
Have seen a great light
To those who sit in chains
Yah has sent a savior
He keeps His promises
Great is Your faithfulness
To us!

Yes, Yah, I’ll wait and see
That You’ll deliver me
Whatever pain or ill
Your love is greater still!

Those walking in the dark
Have seen a great light
To those who sit in chains
Yah has sent a savior
He keeps His promises
Great is Your faithfulness

Praise be to Yehovah!
All glory and greatness!
Praise be to Yehovah!
Who shines through our darkness
He’s El, who gives us light
Removes our sins from sight

Praise be to Yehovah!
All power forever
Praise be to Yehovah!
Our wonderful Savior
Who has made us His own
Who was and is to come
Yehovah!

I am a sixteen-year-old girl who loves to write, especially fiction. I write many stories and poems. I usually have a moral or lesson behind my writings, for I hope these stories and poems, which Yehovah (God) helped me to write, will glorify Him as I share them on this blog. Welcome to my blog and I hope you enjoy your stay!
