The Prince of Egypt (1998) Poster

Ofra Haza: Yocheved



  • Yocheved : [singing, while wrapping a blanket around her baby and hiding it in her arms]  Yal-di ha-tor veh he ha-rach...

    [My good and tender son] 

    Yocheved : Al ti-ra, veh al tif-chad.

    [Don't be frightened and don't be scared] 

    Yocheved : My son, I have nothing I can give, but this chance that you may live. I pray we'll meet again, if He will deliver us...

    [Yocheved, Miriam and Aaron race to the river with the baby] 

    Chorus : Deliver us, hear our prayer, deliver us from despair, these years of slavery grow too cruel to stand! Deliver us, there's a land you promised us, deliver us out of bondage and deliver us to the promised land...

    Yocheved : [placing the baby in the basket]  Hush now, my baby. Be still, love, don't cry. Sleep as you're rocked by the stream. Sleep and remember my last lullaby, so I'll be with you when you dream. River, oh river, flow gently for me. Such precious cargo you bear. Do you know somewhere he can live free? River, deliver him there...

  • [last lines] 

    Yocheved : [Sung]  Deliver us!
