[Hebrew text]
('Every born son you shall cast into the Nile' [Exodus 1:22])

Many sleepless nights
Far too many troubled days
The prophets are grim at thought
The oracles have spoken
Dark and gloomy eyes turned hellish red in mind
Every born son you shall cast into the Nile!
And I know for sure that they won't endure
Something's got to give
They will crumble down
Show them no remorse
Make them feel the pain
Spill the blood of every son, for this is not in vain

Be silent my child, be silent my child
Your tender cry, visions in your eyes
And I won't let go, no, I won't let go
Embracing you, my child
Stay with me

[Hebrew text]
('And there arose not a prophet since in Israel like unto Moses, Whom the lord knew face to face, in all the signs and the wonders, Which the Lord sent to him to do in the land of Egypt to Pharaoh, And to all his servants, and to all his land, and in all that mighty hand, And in all the great terror which Moses shewed in the sight of all Israel' [Deuteronomy 34:10-12])

Distant sound of evil getting closer with each step
I must hide before they reach
Quick, hide before they breach

I know that they look for you
You're safe with me
God holds your hand
Silent screams
For if they hear us,
it will be the end of his life
I'll sacrifice myself for you, my child
I'll sacrifice my soul

My gracious God, please send me an angel
with crystal white wings,
which under it we safely abide
No evil can harm us
Holy savior, protector of the Kingdom of Heaven,
I'm calling your name
Hear me!

I've seen the light shining from above! (x2)

[Hebrew text]
('The LORD make his face shine upon thee' [Numbers 6:25])

[Hebrew text]
('And she took for him an ark of bulrushes and put the child therein, and she laid it in the flags by the river's brink.' [Exodus 2:3])

Hush my baby, don't you cry
My love for you is eternal
Like the everlasting fire,
you light up the darkest corner of my soul
God please, God please hold his hand
Protect him from our sins
Show your grace, bless the child
Watch him from afar as he floats along the Nile
Aimlessly drifting
Washed away with all my tears
My sorrow, my pain!
A tear drop falling ripples my reflection
And I can't let go
