The Prince of Egypt the Musical - Act II Finale Lyrics


AARON: (spoken)
It's the Egyptian army.
Rameses betrayed us–it was a trap!

MIRIAM: (spoken)
What are you going to do, Moses?

MOSES: (spoken)
I don't know

MIRIAM:
Many nights we prayed, with no proof anyone could hear
All at once an answer came, in ways we never planned

MOSES:
So we are not afraid, for we've seen miracles appear
Is there one more miracle?
Is there one more miracle if I stretch forth my hand?

YOCHEVED:
Deliver us
Now Your will, deliver us
And until the end of history
Will this day be sung
Ah-ah-ahh

MIRIAM & YOCHEVED:
Ah-ah-ahh
Ah-ah-ahh

ENSEMBLE:
Ah-ah-ahh
Ah-ah-ahh
Ah-ah-ahh
Ah-ah-ahh

HIGH PRIEST HOTEP: (spoken)
Your highness, the Hebrews are getting away.
Order the soldiers to follow them into the sea!

PHARAOH SETI:
One weak link can break the strongest chain

HOTEP: (spoken)
There is still time to catch them

PHARAOH SETI:
One weak king can end the longest reign

HOTEP: (spoken)
We can kill every one of them

PHARAOH SETI:
Although my worst fear is coming true

HOTEP: (spoken)
Honour your father—take your vengeance!

PHARAOH SETI:
Is that one weak link
That one weak link
That one weak link

HOTEP: (spoken)
This is why you came here!

RAMESES: (spoken)
No!

QUEEN TUYA:
This is why you were born

SETI:
This is what you were made for

TUYA & SETI:
This is who you both will be
The rest of your long lives through

TUYA & SETI & RAMESES:
Now you know what you must be
Now you know what you must do

HOTEP: (spoken)
After the Hebrews!

RAMESES: (spoken)
No, I order you to stop!

HOTEP:
They're following me now!

HOTEP & ENSEMBLE:
By the power of Mut, Nut, Khnum, Ptah
Anubis, Anoukis, Hemsut, Tefnut, Meshket, Mafdet
Sobek, Sekhmet, Sokar, Serket
Ra!

ENSEMBLE:
Ah-ah-ahh. Ah-ah-ahh
Ah-ah-ahh.

MOSES:
For the rest of my life
I don't know what is to come

RAMESES:
For the rest of my life
No ancient laws to show the way

MOSES & RAMESES:
But as each day I search for what to do
I'll know there is a brother who is searching too
I'll know there is a brother out there who
Can understand
Footprints on the sand
One day we will vanish
Like Footprints on the sand
Like echoes of a fading chime
Our bodies will be gone
But deeds can live on

For we can be both merely human and sublime
Oh, footprints on the sand
And footprints on the sands of time!

ENSEMBLE:
Who knows what miracles you can achieve
When you believe, somehow you will

MOSES & RAMESES:
Footprints on the sand

ENSEMBLE:
Now you will

MOSES & RAMESES:
Footprints on the sand

ENSEMBLE:
You will when you believe

MOSES & RAMESES:
When you believe

ENSEMBLE:
You will when you believe
