Representative Text

1 Sing, my soul from bondage free,
Israel’s God thy God will be;
In the dark and foamy sea
Pharaoh’s host shall buried be.

Refrain:

Israel’s God thy God will be.

2 “Sweets of sin”—delusive dream!
Burning thirst and poisonous stream;
Found of Life thy streams outpour,
Let me drink and thirst no more. [Refrain]

3 Fainting on the desert way,
For my “daily bread” I pray;
Bread of Life, thy Life I need,
Let me ever on thee feed. [Refrain]

4 When the enemy is nigh,
Lord, to thee, to thee I cry;
Save me in the trying hour,
Save my soul from Satan’s power. [Refrain]
