The Prince of Egypt the Musical - Act I Finale Lyrics


HIGH PRIEST HOTEP & ENSEMBLE:
Hail, sons of Ra
Say unto him who lifts his arm in the east

That the king is coming as a god
That the king stands in the palace of the horizon
Behold, he comes
Behold, he comes

PHARAOH SETI: (spoken)
My son, our people and our dynasty are now in your hands

RAMESES:
No weak link ever shall break our chain
No weak king ever shall end our reign
Father, I promise you
I will meet every task
Father, I swear I'll do
All you would hope
Or ask

SETI:
Then, I am not afraid

NEFERTARI: (spoken)
Your Majesty. Lord of the two lands.
Your queen kneels before you

(sung)
This is why you were born
This is what you were made for

NEFERTARI & SETI:
This is who you will be
The rest of your long life through

NEFERTARI & SETI & QUEEN TUYA:
Now this life that was yours
Belongs not only to you
Now you know what you must be
Now you know what you must do

ENSEMBLE:
Moses...
Moses...
Behold a bush that burns with fire
But is not consumed

MOSES: (spoken)
What do you want with me?

ENSEMBLE:
Take your sandals from your feet
For you stand on holy ground

MOSES: (spoken)
Who are you?

ENSEMBLE:
I Am That I Am

MOSES: (spoken)
I don't understand

ENSEMBLE:
I am the God of your ancestors
Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob
I have heard the cry of my people
In oppression in Egypt
Now I will send forth a messenger
To deliver them out of their bondage
To a land of milk and honey
Now I send you!

MOSES:
Was that a miracle?
Hard to believe
But I know what my ears heard
What my eyes seemed to see
And even if I dreamed it
How can I live
Knowing my people anguish
While only I am free?
I saw a miracle
And now it's up to me

TZIPPORAH: (spoken)
Well, of course. I'm not going to let you go alone

MOSES: (spoken)
I promise we'll come back when it's done.
This is something I must do

TZIPPORAH:
I know

MOSES & TZIPPORAH & NEFERTARI:
This is why you were born

SETI & RAMESES:
This is why you were born

MOSES & TZIPPORAH & NEFERTARI:
This is what you were made for

SETI & RAMESES:
This is what you were made for

MOSES & TZIPPORAH & NEFERTARI:
This is who you will be

SETI & RAMESES:
This is who, you will be

MOSES & TZIPPORAH & NEFERTARI:
The rest of your long life through

SETI & RAMESES:
Long life, and strength

ENSEMBLE & SETI & RAMESES:
Now this life that was yours (All that was yours)
Belongs not only to you (Will also belong to me)
Now you know what you must be (Life and strength)
Now you know what you must do (Now it's up to you)

RAMESES:
Now my life is changing

MOSES:
Now my life is changing

RAMESES:
Will life from now on turn out to be

MOSES:
Will this strange new path ahead be

BOTH:
All I ever wanted?

RAMESES & MOSES:
So much rests on me now
So much rests on me now
This is vast responsibility
Isn't this the thing I said was

BOTH:
All I ever wanted?
All that I ever
Wanted

ENSEMBLE & MOSES & RAMESES:
Deliver us
Ahhhh, deliver us
Ahhhh, remember us
Here in this burning sand (Will my new life be)
Deliver us (All I ever wanted?)
There's a land you promised us (All I ever wanted)
Deliver us to the Promised Land (And will all I ever wanted)
Deliver us (Deliver me!)
To the Promised Land (To the Promised Land)
