Exodus Explainings

Tune: Coe Fen

('How shall I sing that majesty?')

Psalm 105 v.38-45

**********

The people at the Exodus

Said, God has done for us

Great things whereof we sure are glad

Our hearts no longer sad

And Egyptians too glad were they

When Israel that day

Departed, for their fear did fall

Upon Egyptians all

 

He spread cloud for a covering

From exile He did bring

Them and a fiery pillar too

Gave them night-light anew

The people asked, he gave them quails

His provision prevails

And satisfied them with the bread

Of heaven, with manna fed

 

He opened the rock, waters gushed

From it, in flowings rushed

Waters did run in dry places

Like river, each traces

For He remembered His holy

Promise, and graciously

Abraham His servant with who

He made covenant rue

 

He brought froth with joy His people

They celebrated all

And they His chosen ones gladness

Did share, He did them bless

And gave them lands of the heathen

They inherited then

That they might observes His laws, ways

Obey Him all their days
