Representative Text

1 Israel, thy tribute bring to God’s victorious name;
The song of Moses sing, of Moses and the Lamb:
Improve his lays; the theme exceeds
And nobler deeds demand our praise.

2 The prince of hell arose with impious rage and pride,
And ’midst our numerous foes, our feeble power defied;
I will o’ertake, and I destroy,
My hand with joy shall force thee back.

3 Thy hand, almighty Lord, Thy trembling Israel saves;
Thine unresisted Word eivides the threatening waves:
Thy hosts pass o’er; the foe o’erthrown
Sinks like a stone to rise no more.

4 Our triumphs we prepare, and cheerful anthems raise;
Jehovah’s arm made bare demands immortal praise;
And while we sing, ye shores, proclaim
His wondrous name; ye deserts, sing.

5 Thro’ all the wilderness Thy presence, Lord, shall lead;
And bring us to the place Thy sovereign love decreed;
Those blissful plains, where all around
Hosannas sound, and transport reigns.
