Passover Us

Song’s For God Day 19

Song: Passover Us

Artist: Andrew Peterson

 

He said “Pharaoh, you’ve got to let my people go.
You don’t want me to have to tell you this ten times over–
Denial ain’t just a river, you know”

And we all remember Pharaoh, he just wouldn’t do it
So the plagues they came upon Egypt one by one
His heart was hard and the other nine just couldn’t move it
So the last was the worst: the death of the firstborn son

But the Lord, he gave to Moses a word for the people
He said their firstborn sons could live to see another day
“Put the blood of a lamb on the doorway and death will pass right over”
That night all of the children of Israel prayed,

“Lord, let your judgment Passover us
Lord, let your love hover near
Don’t let your sweet mercy Passover us
Let this blood cover over us here”

So the years went by and the people they whined and they wandered
And only sacrifice atoned for the sins of the land
So you see the priest he placed upon the holy altar
The body of a spotless lamb
And he prayed,

Chorus

“Lord, let your judgment Passover us
Lord, let your love hover near
Don’t let your sweet mercy Passover us
Let this blood cover over us here”

I chose this song special for today in this entry of Songs For God because I believe it pay honour to the Lord who delivered Israel out of Egyptian hard bondage.  In addition to this special song, I was also watching the 1956 edition of the Ten Commandments starring Charlton Heston and Yul Brenner as Moses and Ramsey’s in their respective roles. I also thought how important to look back on the past events and witness God’s power and take note and be grateful and humble in knowing that the same God is still very much alive today.
