Do You Hear Our People Sing?

to the tune of “Do You Hear the People Sing?” from Les Miserables


Do you hear our people sing?
Singing “Dayeinu” and “Amen”?

Telling the story of a people
Who will not be slaves again!

From the shank bone to the wine
Down to the final matzah crumbs,
There is a night about to start
When the seder comes!

Will you join our seder now
And have a matzo ball with me?
Someone will tell the tale of how
We all got out of slavery.

We’re happy tonight
That we all have the right to be free!

(Repeat Chorus)

Will you drink some kosher wine,
And eat some matzo and maror?
We will talk of Hebrews dancing
On a dry and distant shore.

We’ll pray for Elijah
To come when we open the door!

(Repeat Chorus)
