ASSEMBLED: In every generation, each person must look inward as though they personally were among those who went forth from Egypt. Not our ancestors alone were redeemed from suffering, but also us and our families.
Leader: The struggle for freedom is a continuous struggle, For never does a person reach total liberty nor opportunity.
ASSEMBLED: In every age, some new freedom is won and established, adding to the advancement of human happiness and security.
Leader: Yet, each age uncovers a former unrecognized servitude, requiring new liberation to set souls free.
ASSEMBLED: In every age, the concept of freedom grows broader, widening the horizons for finer and more ethical living.
LEADER: Each generation is duty-bound to contribute to this growth, else humankind’s ideals become stagnant and stationary.
ASSEMBLED: The events in Egypt were but a significant instance of a force in history which will forever continue.
LEADER: In this spirit, we see ourselves as participants in the Exodus, for we must dedicate our energies to the cause there begun.
ASSEMBLED: In our day, we shall defend the heritage of liberty, taught by the Torah and preserved by democracies. (All raise their cups.)
As inheritors of the priceless heritage of liberty, we join now in glorifying God's Holy Name. For the miracles which God Wrought in the past, and also in our day, we offer God our thankfulness: We were delivered us from slavery to freedom, from sorrow to happiness, from mourning to rejoicing, from ignorance to enlightenment; In gratitude for these manifold blessings we shall sing songs of praise.
(The cups are put down and refilled.)
