Long ago at this season, our people set out on a journey.

On such a night as this, Israel went from degradation to joy.

We give thanks for the liberation of days gone by.

And we pray for all who are still bound.

Eternal God, may all who hunger come to rejoice in a new Passover.

Let all the human family sit at your table, drink the wine of deliverance, eat the bread of freedom:

Freedom from bondage

and Freedom from oppression

Freedom from hunger

and Freedom from want

Freedom from hatred

and Freedom from fear

Freedom to think

and Freedom to speak

Freedom to teach

and Freedom to learn

Freedom to love

and Freedom to share

Freedom to hope

and Freedom to rejoice

Soon, in our days
