Big day at Sinai

G-d is giving all of us

The Ten Commandments

One G-d, no idols

Don’t swear, remember Shabbat

Honor your parents

Don’t murder, don’t cheat

No stealing, and no lying

Last thing – don’t covet

When G-d parted the waters

They sang out in joy

Who is like You G-d?

Majestic in holiness

Doing miracles

Tell that mean old Pharaoh to

Let my people go!”
