"Miriam's Song" by Debbie Friedman refers to the Biblical character of Miriam and the rejoicing of the Hebrew slaves upon reaching the other side of the Red Sea (from Egypt).

This song is used in some Jewish services along with or instead of Mi Chamocha. It is based on Exodus 15:20-21, Shirat HaYam, the “Song at the Sea”.

Debbie Friedman's recorded version of the song is 2 minutes and 33 seconds long.

The chorus:

And the women dancing with their timbrels
Followed Miriam as she sang her song
Sing a song to the One whom we've exalted.
Miriam and the women danced and danced
the whole night long.
