VANESSA PALOMA – MOSES SALIO DE MISRAYIM
New York Jewish Guide – Selection of the Month – Beautiful Lyric
- Moses left Misrayim fleeing from King Paro
He went straight to Midian and found Yitro.
He gave him Sipora, his daughter because he feared God
Moses walked the cattlethat his father-in-law gave him
Moses, walking the cattle, arrived to Mount Horeb
He saw a burning bush but it did not consume.
Moses covered his eyesfearing to see God
He heard a voice that said Moses, Moses, my servant
Take off your shoes you are standing in a holy place
You will go straight to Misrayim and tell King Paro
To give you the keys of my people, the Hebrews
And if he does not give them I will punish him
With ten plagues that I will send so he knows who I am.
Hodu lAd-nai ki tov ki leolam hasdo
Praised be his name because he always gave us good
And in heavens and the earthhis mercy never lacked.
