Why Is This Night Different From All Other Nights?

Many thanks to Daniel for this inspiration.

Why Is This Night Different?

Why is this night different from all other nights?
The young boy asks his father, that first Passover night
As the destroying angel comes near and then passes by
Why is this night different?
My child, tonight we shall be redeemed
Delivered from the bondage of Egypt
Saved by the blood of the Passover lamb on our door
Tonight we sing praises. This night we shall be redeemed.

Why is this night different from all other nights?
A shepherd boy meets the Messiah that Passover night
As heaven and earth ring with news of the Christ Child’s birth
Why is this night different?
My child, tonight we shall be redeemed
Delivered from the bondage of earth
Saved by the sinless life of the Babe of Bethlehem
Tonight we sing praises, for in due time we shall be redeemed.

Why is this night different from all other nights?
Disciples question the Master that Passover night.
As He breaks bread with them and cries out in Gethsemane
Why is this night different?
My child, tonight you shall be redeemed
Delivered from the bondage of sin
Save by the blood of the Passover Lamb on the cross
Tonight we sing praises. This night we have been redeemed.

Why is this morn different from all other morns?
Mary learns, by the Garden Tomb beside Calvary
As angels declare glad tidings again—He is risen!
Why is this morn different?
My child, this day you have been redeemed.
Delivered from the bondage of death
Saved by the Lamb who died and rose that we might live
Today we sing praises, for this day we have been redeemed.

Saved from all woe by the Lord, our Passover Lamb
We will sing praises, for this day we have been redeemed.
