To start the process of answering "Why is this night different?" we begin with a frame for the Seder: these are redemption songs that teach us our identity.

Redemption Song
(Music by Bob Marley; Words by Rabbi Nadav Caine)

Old Midianites, says the Rabbi, Sold Joseph to Egypt
Minutes after they took him
From the bottomless pit
But his hand was made strong By the (outstretched) hand of the Almighty
We recount in this generation, triumphantly


Won't you help to sing these songs of freedom?
'Cause all we ever have...Redemption songs, Redemption songs

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery, we Jews must free our minds
Have no fear of being Jewish, don't say you have no time
How long shall we ignore our prophets, while they stand aside and look?
We'll build a new Jerusalem, We've got to fulfill the Book

Won't you help to sing these songs of freedom?
'Cause all we ever have...Redemption songs, Redemption songs

Our ancestors survived the Holocaust, pogroms and oppression,
We have to stand up for justice, teach the world our lesson.
How long shall we ignore our prophets, while they stand aside and look?
They tell us what God wants from us, we've got to fulfill the book

Won't you help to sing these songs of freedom?
'Cause all we ever have...Redemption songs, Redemption songs

Won't you help to sing these songs of freedom?
'Cause all we ever have...Redemption songs, Redemption songs

These songs of freedom, songs of freedom.
