Bo: "Come"
Exodus 10:1 - 13:16

And then in a great wind
off the desert to the south

The life-giving breeze came forth

Miraculously searching from pillar to post

The life-saving sign

Symbol of salvation
marked by the blood of an innocent lamb

A sacred promise between I Am and His people

Once simple blood
the giving force of all living things

Now spread over the doorposts throughout the land

Once a comforting meal
is now the salvation of the firstborn gently sleeping

Awakening to the Passover miracle
a link between a shepherd and his staff

The Israelite's now had a path and an answer
toward their land sought so long ago

Freed upon the midnight sun
to trod forth in sandals of peace

Not spent in shekels of slavery

This day lead by the simple truth in their hearts
filled first with hope

This day with Passover joy

Leading them forth toward the land of promise
