CXIV. The Works of Moses and the Lamb

1 How strong thine Arm is, mighty God!
Who would not fear thy Name!
Jesus, how sweet thy Graces are!
Who would not love the Lamb?

2 He has done more than Moses did
Our Prophet and our King;
From Bonds of Hell he freed our Souls,
And taught our Lips to sing.

3 In the Read-Sea, by Moses' Hand,
Th' Egyptian Host was drown'd;
But his own Blood hides all our Sins,
And Guilt no more is found.

4 When thro' the Desert Israel went,
With Manna they were fed:
Our Lord invites us to his Flesh,
And calls it Living Bread.

5 Moses beheld the promis'd Land,
Yet never reached the Place;
But Christ shall bring his Followers home,
To see his Father's Face.

6 Then shall our Love and Joy be full,
And feel a warmer Flame;
And sweeter Voices tune the Song
Of Moses and the Lamb.
