Song: Miriam’s Song 

    by Debbie 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 strand and every thread she crafted her delight

A woman touched with spirit, she dances toward the light


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 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 in song

She sang with praise and might

We’ve just lived through a miracle 

We’re going to dance tonight
