El paso del Mar Rojo

Language: Spanish (EspaƱol)

Cuando el pueblo de Yisrael
d'Egipto salieron cantando,
con hijos y con mujeres,
šir širim1 iban cantando...
Vido venir a Faró
con un pendón colorado.
-- ¿Ande nos trajites, Mosé,
a morir en estos campos;
a morir sin sepultura
o en la mar ahogados?
-- No vos espantéz, judiós,
ni seaz despazenciados
Que miremos sus maravillas,
que mos hace el Dio de alto.
El es Uno y no sigundo;
El es Patrón de todo el mundo.

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
