ַהֵלּל Hallel: Praise No one can keep us from carrying God Wherever we go. (Hafiz, transl. Daniel Ladinsky)
The traditional Hallel consists of recitation of several psalms. In this haggadah, those psalms have been interspersed with contemporary readings and poetry. Feel free to use all, or only some, of what follows.
Psalms Chapter 114 תְּהִלִּים
א בְּצֵאת יִשְׂרָאֵל, מִמִּצְרָיִם; בֵּית יַעֲקֹב, מֵעַם לֹעֵז.
1 When Israel came forth out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language;
ב הָיְתָה יְהוּדָה לְקָדְשׁוֹ; יִשְׂרָאֵל, מַמְשְׁלוֹתָיו.
2 Judah became His sanctuary, Israel His dominion.
ג הַיָּם רָאָה, וַיָּנֹס; הַיַּרְדֵּן, יִסֹּב לְאָחוֹר.
3 The sea saw it, and fled; the Jordan turned backward.
ד הֶהָרִים, רָקְדוּ כְאֵילִים; גְּבָעוֹת, כִּבְנֵי-צֹאן.
4 The mountains skipped like rams, the hills like young sheep.
ה מַה-לְּךָ הַיָּם, כִּי תָנוּס; הַיַּרְדֵּן, תִּסֹּב לְאָחוֹר.
5 What aileth thee, O thou sea, that thou fleest? thou Jordan, that thou turnest backward?
ו הֶהָרִים, תִּרְקְדוּ כְאֵילִים; גְּבָעוֹת, כִּבְנֵי-צֹאן.
6 Ye mountains, that ye skip like rams; ye hills, like young sheep?
ז מִלִּפְנֵי אָדוֹן, חוּלִי אָרֶץ; מִלִּפְנֵי, אֱלוֹהַּ יַעֲקֹב.
7 Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob;
ח הַהֹפְכִי הַצּוּר אֲגַם-מָיִם; חַלָּמִישׁ, לְמַעְיְנוֹ-מָיִם.
8 Who turned the rock into a pool of water, the flint into a fountain of waters.

Nishmat kol chai t'varech et shimcha
יְיָ אֱלֹהֵינוּ. וְרוּחַ כָּל בָּשָׂר,
Yahh eloheynu. V'ruach kol basar,
תְּפָאֵר וּתְרוֹמֵם זִכְרְךָ מַלְכֵּנוּ תָּמִיד,
t'faer u-tromem zichrecha malkeinu tamid,
.מִן הָעוֹלָם וְעַד הָעוֹלָם אַתָּה אֵל.
min ha-olam v'ad ha-olam atah el
The breath of all life praises Your name,
Adonai, our God. And the spirit enlivening all flesh
offers praises to You, Eternal;
from one world to the next, you are God.
Were our mouths filled with song as the sea
Our tongues with rejoicing as the waves
Our lips with praise like the breadth of the horizon
Our eyes brilliant like the sun and the moon
Our arms outspread as eagles' wings
Our feet as swift as deers'
It would not be enough to thank You, our God of eternity and eternities.
