Mose salyo de Misrayim (Moses went out of Egypt)
Mose salyo de Misrayim / uyendo del ray Par'o
fuese derecho a Midian / enkontrose kon Yitro
Dyo le a por la ke'era temyente de Dio
Mose pasaba el ganado / ke su suegro le entrego
Y al pasando su ganado / al monte Horeb yego
asentose en una pyedra / esperando ver a Dio
Oyo una voz de deseya / Mose, Mose, me syervo
descalza de tuz zapatoz / ke'en lugar santo estaz tu
Vete derecho a Misrayim / dile al rey Par'o
ke te enregey me puebo / a me puevlo ebreo
Y si no te entregaray / castigarle kiero Yo
kon dies plaga ke le mmanday / pa'ke sepa kien soy Yo
(Hebrew) Hodu l'Adonai ki tov / ki le-olam hasdo
(Judeo-Spanish) Alabado seya su nombre . por ke siempre bein nos
Moses went out of Egypt / fleeing from king Pharoah
went directly to the land of midian / and met Jethro
He was giveb his (Jethro's) daughter / because he was God-
Moses tended to his flock / which his father-in-law
assigned to him.
While working / he came to the mountain of Horeb
he seated himself on a rock / waiting to see God.
He heard a voice which said / Moses, Moses, my servant
take off you shoes / you are in a Holy place.
Go straight to Egypt / tell king Pharoah
to send out my people / my Hebrew people.
And if he will not let them go / I will punish him
with ten plagues which I will send him / so that he will
know who I am.
Give thanks to the Lord for His goodness / for His
Praised be His name / because of his continuing goodness
