Zurisadai

My name is Zurisadai. I am ten years old.

Dad

Son, we are escaping from slavery in Egypt.
Go get a lamb. It is urgent.

Prompter & Echoes

Run!

Zurisadai

I catch a lamb and hold it while my dad slits its throat.
Blood spurts all over me! Flies come!

Prompter & Echoes

Oooo!

Zurisadai

Dad, why are you smearing blood beside our door?

Dad

Moses warned us that the death angel would fly over Egypt tonight,
and slay each family’s firstborn; that means the oldest son.

Prompter & Echoes

Oh no! I am the firstborn son!

Dad

Do not worry, son.
God’s angel will see the lamb’s blood, and pass over.

Zurisadai

Night comes and I cannot sleep. I am really scared.
The night grows cold and silent. I clench my teeth.
I beg the God of Abraham to let the angel see the blood.
It is so dark!

Prompter & Echoes

Too dark!

Zurisadai

I hear screams, faintly and far off. They grow closer and louder.
Now, the cries are all around us!

Prompter & Echoes

(Wail loudly)

Zurisadai

I press my hands over my ears.
I shut my eyes, waiting, waiting, waiting.
Dear Lord, save me! Save me!

Prompter & Echoes

(Wail softly for a brief moment.)

Zurisadai

The wailing grows fainter. Now, silence!
I open my eyes. Mom and dad are looking down at me, weeping.
I will never forget Abba’s cry.

Dad

(Shout) He saw it! God’s death angel saw it!

Prompter & Echoes

The blood of the lamb!
