1 What hath God wrought! might Israel say,
When Jordan roll'd its tide away,
And gave a passage to their bands,
Safely to march across its sands.
2 What hath God wrought! might well be said,
When Jesus, rising from the dead,
Scatter'd the shades of pagan night,
And bless'd the nations with his light.
3 What hath God wrought! let Britain see,
Freed from the plagues of popery,
Its ten fold night, its iron chains,
Its galling yoke, its cruel pains.
4 What hath God wrought! in glad surprize,
Shall sound thro' all the earth and skies,
When, like a mill-stone in the main,
Proud Rome shall sink, nor rise again.
5 What hath God wrought! O blissful theme!
Are we redeem'd, and call'd by him?
Shall we be led the desert thro'?—
And safe arrive at glory too?—
6 The news shall every heart employ,
Fill every tongue with rapturous joy;
When shall we join the heavenly throng,
To swell the triumph and the song!
