Deliver Us

This song is by Ofra Haza, features Eden Riegel and appears on the movie soundtrack The Prince of Egypt (1998).

Mud... sand... water... straw...

(Egyptian Guard)

Mud... and lift... sand... and pull...
Water... and raise up... straw...

(Egyptian Guard)

With the sting of the whip on my shoulder
With the salt of my sweat on my brow
Elohim, God on high
Can you hear your people cry?
Help us now in this dark hour...

Deliver us, hear our call
Deliver us, Lord of all
Remember us, here in this burning sand
Deliver us, there's a land you promised us
Deliver us to the Promised Land

Yal-di ha-tov veh ha-rach
(My good and tender son)
Al ti-ra veh al tif-chad
(Don't be frightened and don't be scared)
My son, I have nothing I can give
But this chance that you may live
I pray we'll meet again
If He will deliver us...

Deliver us, hear our prayer
Deliver us from despair
These years of slavery grow too cruel to stand
Deliver us, there's a land you promised us
Deliver us out of bondage and...
Deliver us to the Promised Land

Hush now, my baby
Be still, love, don't cry
Sleep as you're rocked by the stream
Sleep and remember my last lullaby
So I'll be with you when you dream

River, o river, flow gently for me
Such precious cargo you bear
Do you know somewhere he can be free?
River, deliver him there...

(Young Miriam)
Brother, you're safe now and safe may you stay
For I have a prayer just for you:
Grow, baby brother, come back someday
Come and deliver us, too...

Deliver us, send a shepherd to shepherd us
And deliver us to the Promised Land

Deliver us!
