God of the earth, the air, the sea,
Source of Israel’s salvation!
Whose power set our fathers free,
From Egypt’s task and tribulation;
Through ages shall their seed proclaim,
Their glorious redeemer’s name.
Thy angel in the pillar stood,
Towering by turns in flame and cloud;
And bade the winds pass o’er the flood,
To shield the meek and blast the proud.
The song of Miriam evermore
Shall echo find from freedom’s shore.
Here every bosom holds a chord,
That to her grateful strain responds;
Ascribing glory to the Lord,
Who can alone break human bonds.
Praise to the Guide of Israel’s host,
Who maketh vain the tyrant’s boast.
Let every soul be purified,
From dark corruption’s fatal leaven;
Nor in its blind and stubborn pride,
Reject the manna sent from heaven;
The pure, sweet seed of revelation,
By mercy dropt for man’s salvation.
