Glory to God! whose outstretched hand,
Hath smitten Pharaoh’s mighty band.
Let songs through all the tribes resound,
Ransom for Israel hath been found;
A refuge from the scourge and chain,
A shield from the oppressor’s reign.
The Red Sea is in triumph past;
Praise to the ruler of the blast!
At whose strong breath the waves rolled by,
And left the deep foundation dry.
Behold the pride of Egypt checked,
Her princes, priests, and warriors wrecked.
In vain to helpless gods they plead
For succor in the hour of need;
No Providence like ours they know,
To make the flood its prey forego;
Rider and steed in terror sink,
While Judah gains the desert’s brink.
Sole King of heaven and earth, protect,
The residue of thy elect!
Let piety redeem their souls,
Whom sin in fearful bondage holds!
Oh Israel! hear her angel-tone,
And bow before One God alone!
