Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

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.
