Rhyming Haggadah: Kadesh
Our seder now is set to start
sweet juice from grapes to warm the heart
Four cups in all, we will soon drink
each time be sure, our minds should think...
Of that great and awesome time...
when God who's strong and wise and kind
gave us freedom and good laws to bind...
Each of us to one another...
parent, spouse, sister, brother.
The Torah tells us loud and clear
just listen now, you're sure to hear
Hey...Chaya, Eli, you there Chayim
Ho-tzei-tee et-chem mee ta-chat seev-lot meetz-ra-yeem.
Our Torah teaches that God said: "I am the Lord. I will free you from the burdens of the Egyptians." (Exodus 6:6)

O Holy One of the Blessing, Your Presence fills creation thank You, for giving us life, for sustaining us, and for bringing us to this happy time!
