The Prince of Egypt (1998)
Sandra Bullock: Miriam
God : [whispering] Moses...
Moses : Here I am.
God : Take the sandals from your feet, for the place on which you stand is holy ground.
Moses : Who are you?
God : I am that I am.
Moses : I don't understand.
God : I am the God of your ancestors, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
Miriam : [disembodied] You were born of my mother, Yocheved! You are our brother!
[Moses quickly removes his sandals and throws them behind him]
Moses : What do you want with me?
God : I have seen the oppression of my people in Egypt, and have heard their cry.
[sound of screams and cracking whips]
God : So I shall stretch forth my hand, and lead them out of Egypt, into a good land. A land flowing with milk and honey. And so, unto Pharaoh, I shall send... you.
Moses : Me? W-who am I to lead these people? They won't follow me, they won't even listen!
God : I shall teach you what to say.
Moses : [disembodied] Let my people go!
Moses : But I was their enemy. I was the prince of Egypt, the son of the man who slaughtered... their *children*! You've chosen the wrong messenger! H-how can I even speak to these people?
God : WHO MADE MAN'S MOUTH? WHO MADE THE DEAF, THE MUTE, THE SEEING OR THE BLIND? DID NOT I? NOW GO!
[Moses falls to the ground, cowering]
God : [soothing, lifting Moses up] Oh, Moses, I shall be with you when you go to the king of Egypt. But Pharaoh will not listen. So I will stretch forth my hand and smite Egypt with all my wonders! Take the staff in your hand, Moses. With it, *you* shall do *my* wonders.
God : I will be with you, Moses.
Miriam : Moses, hear what I say. I have been a slave all my life. And God has never answered my prayers until now. God saved you from the river, He saved you in all your wanderings, and even now, He saves you from the wrath of Pharaoh. God will not abandon you. So don't you abandon us.
Miriam : [singing] Many nights we've prayed, with no proof anyone could hear. In our hearts a hopeful song we barely understood. Now we are not afraid, although we know there's much to fear. We were moving mountains, long before we knew we could...
Miriam : There can be miracles, when you believe Though hope is frail, it's hard to kill Who knows what miracles you can achieve When you believe, somehow you will You will when you believe
