Passover in Latter-Day Israel

My house is clean,
corrupting leaven 
swept away,
Lamb’s atoning blood
applied to posts 
and lintels of my life.
Remembering bitter 
bondage and sin’s despair,
I stand this night
as first-born heir,
with staff in hand here
in this place,  eager 
to do thy will in haste.
Girded, dressed with 
ready feet, I feast
on unleavened bread, 
the perfect meat,
then empty the cup 
with fervent prayer.
While death and 
destruction around
me rage and raise
the midnight cry,
Deliver, please, I pray. 
Let the destroyer
pass me by.
