about

This song was composed for Central Ballet Theater's production of "The Story of Esther". Check them out at www.centralballet.com

Many thanks to Ginger Ketting-Weller who wrote the first couple of verses. We re-imagined the song by writing new lyrics for Esther, creating a duet, and completely changing the arrangement.

lyrics

Mordecai
==========
Does she remember that I love her
Does she remember how I care
Does she remember how we treasured her
When her own parents were not there
Does she recall she's still my daughter
Though we have been so long apart
Does she remember how I cherished her
Does she still hold me in her heart

Esther
========
Yahweh I am fraught with fear
Please show me that you are near
I lay my life into Your hands
Just help me understand
Why You would choose a girl like me
What can I do to set us free
Is this why You have brought me here
I hardly know what do believe

Mordecai
========
Does she remember where she came from
Does she remember who she is
Does she remember she's a chosen one
Does she remember that she's His
Does she remember that she's Jewish
Does she remember Israel's way
Does she remember there is one true God
Does she remember how to pray
Does she remember how to pray

Esther
=======
What do you ask of me, what is the cost
I can't remember when I've felt so lost
Why am i a chosen one
Why must this fall to me
How can i look away, how can i hide
My family's heritage is also mine
I will trust the one true God

And if I perish, then I perish
Lord be with me, come what may
