Miriam's Song

Rock Voisine

Thomas Moore

Hebrew Lyrics

And the women dancing with their timbrels
Followed Miriam as she sang her song:
"Sing a song to the one whom we've exalted"
Miriam and the women danced and danced the whole night long

And Miriam was a weaver of unique variety
The tapestry she wove was one which sings our history
With every strand and every thread she crafted her delight
A woman touched with spirit, she dances toward the light.

When Miriam stood upon the shores and gazed across the sea,
The wonder of this miracle she soon came to believe
Whoever thought the sea would part with an outstretched hand
So we could pass to freedom and march to the promised land?

And Miriam the prophet took her timbrel in her hand
And all the women followed her just as she had planned
And Miriam raised her voice in song. She sang with praise and might:
We've just lived through a miracle: we're going to dance tonight!
