Parallel to the celebration of the Cup of Elijah

A. Miriam Ha-N'viah

Lyrics by Rabbi Leila Gal Berner

This song focusing on the Prophet Miriam is sung to the traditional melody for Elijah's song.


Miriam ha-n'vi'ah oz v'zimrah b'yadah. Miriam tirkod itanu l'hagdil zimrat olam. Miriam tirkod itanu l'taken et ha-olam. Bimheirah v'yameinu hi t'vi'einu el mei ha-y'shuah.


Miriam the prophet, strength and song in her hand Miriam dance with us in order to increase the song of the world. Miriam dance with us in order to repair the world. Soon she will bring us to the waters of redemption.


B. Miriam's Song

Music and Lyrics by Deborah Lynn Friedman


And the women dancing with their timbrels Followed Miriam as she sang her song Sing a song to the One whom we've exalted. Miriam and the women danced and danced the whole night long.


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


And the women dancing with their timbrels Followed Miriam as she sang her song Sing a song to the One whom we've exalted. Miriam and the women danced and danced the whole night long.


As Miriam 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 the women dancing with their timbrels Followed Miriam as she sang her song Sing a song to the One whom we've exalted. Miriam and the women danced and danced the whole night long.


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


And the women dancing with their timbrels Followed Miriam as she sang her song Sing a song to the One whom we've exalted. Miriam and the women danced and danced the whole night long.
