Helen Moses

The Song of Moses

Happy Easter!

For a number of years now, maybe as many as 18, I have been the cantor for the “Song of Moses” at the Easter Vigil service at my church.

Last night I sang it again. The song expresses Moses’ gratitude and awe regarding his God who delivered his people from oppression.

Of course, being Helen Moses, I love singing this song. It is a special honor and it is very personal. Each year I try to bring new life to it. This year I felt a new connection when I sang it. As I am working to get to the root of what holds me back in my life, I can relate to Moses and his people.
