Music and Lyrics

Below, the first two songs are traditionally sung during Passover at a seder. “Eliyahu Hanavi” sings of the prophet Elijah who is thought to appear before the messiah’s first coming (Matthew 11:14), and the second, “Dayenu,” means “it would have been enough for us” and reminds us of our blessings in God’s provision.  The third song is Messianic and can be sung at any time of year, but at Passover it particularly reminds those of us who believe in Jesus of redemption in the Lamb of God.

Passover Lamb

Lyrics – Sam Nadler
Music – Stuart Dauermann

Pharaoh had us all enslaved, lab’ring in
his land
The Lord God heard our cry and freed us
by His hand
And by the blood of the pure and
spotless lamb
We’re free, we are all set free.
Passover lamb’s blood upon the door
Forming a cross to seal us from death’s jaw
And by the blood of the pure and
spotless lamb
We’re free, we are all set free.

Alleluia! Alleluia!
God of Abram, thank You for the lamb.

God gave us Israel but we turned away
God gave the Law to us but we disobeyed
God gave His only Son to come and set
us free
We’re free, we are all set free.
Yes, we all did turn away and we all were lost
So we took a perfect Lamb and nailed Him
to a cross
And by the blood of the pure and spotless
Lamb
We’re free, we are all set free.

Alleluia! Alleluia!
God of Isaac, thank You for the Lamb.

Three days He lay; then Jesus did rise
So all who will believe never have to die
And by the blood of the pure and
spotless Lamb
We’re free, we are all set free.
Passover Lamb’s blood upon the door
Forming a cross to seal us from death’s jaw
And by the blood of the pure and
spotless Lamb
We’re free, we are all set free.

Alleluia! Alleluia!
God of Jacob, thank You for the Lamb.

Alleluia! Alleluia!
God of Israel, thank You for the Lamb.
