Miriam's Song

And the women dancing with their timbrels, followed Miryam as she sang her song:

"Sing a song to the One whom we've exalted!" Miryam and the women danced and danced the whole night long.

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

When Miryam 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, And we would pass to freedom and march to the promised land?

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