Pharaoh now stands when Moses is announced,
Abraham’s El has remembered us and pounced!
Seeing a blood river would’ve been enough for me,
Still he resisted though in stiff-necked blasphemy.
Over Goshen’s such peace and inside, cheering!
Vigils alive with songs and old stories in hearing.
Eager to help, we paint doorposts with innocence,
Rejoicing in our El’s salvation and its imminence.
Inspired by Exodus 12
