Deliver Us [for Indonesia nowadays]

Hari ini saya mainkan lagu-lagu playlist “Soundtrack” di laptop saya. Senang rasanya mendengar alunan-alunan musiknya, dan entahlah saya selalu tersentuh dengan lagu Deliver Us dari OST Prince of Egypt, film animasi lama yang menceritakan perjalanan hidup Nabi Musa, seorang “deliverer” bagi kaumnya menuju kehidupan yang jauh lebih baik, jauh dari perbudakan kerajaan mesir. Film dan lagu-lagunya sangat indah dan menyentuh.

Saya pun tiba-tiba merefleksikannya dengan keadaan negeri kita saat ini. Bencana alam yang datang silih berganti, belum lagi masalah-masalah terpaut politik dan lain sebagainya yang tidak ada habisnya. Rasanya, tidak ada tempat memohon pertolongan selain kepadaNya, karena segalanya berasal dan kembali dariNya.

Tuhan, kuatkan kami, tunjukkan kami jalan menuju kebaikan dan kedamaian, datangkanlah pemimpin pemimpin bangsa, deliverer-deliverer sejati,  yang mampu menghantarkan kami menuju tempat yang kami rindukan. Deliver Us!

Deliver Us

OST Prince of Egypt

 

[Egyptian Guards]

Mud…Sand…Water…Straw…Faster!

Mud…And lift…Sand…And Pull

Water…And raise up…Straw…Faster!

 

[Slaves]

With the sting of the whip on my shoulder

With the salt of my sweat on my brow

Elohim, God on high

Can you hear your people cry:

Help us now

This dark hour…

 

Deliver us

Hear our call

Deliver us

Lord of all

Remember us, here in this burning sand

Deliver us

There’s a land you promised us

Deliver us to the promised land…

 

[Yocheved]

Yal-di ha-tov veh ha-rach

(My good and tender son)

Al ti-ra veh al tif-chad

(Don’t be frightened and don’t be scared)

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

 

[Slaves]

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]

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, o river

Flow gently for me

Such precious cargo you bear

Do you know somewhere

he can live free?

River, deliver him there…

 

[Young Miriam]

Brother, you’re safe now

And safe may you stay

For I have a prayer just for you:

Grow, baby brother

Come back someday

Come and deliver us, too…

 

[Slaves]

Deliver us

Send a shepherd to shepherd us

And deliver us to the promised land

 

[Yocheved]

Deliver us!
