The children of Jacob were bent making bricks.

Pharaoh, satan’s type, was up to his old tricks.

Goshen had looked good when they first came down.

Sins always shows its laughter before its grim frown.


Then God heard their cry; deliverance soon came.

Broken were the shackles, gone was the shame.

The approach to the Sea had its crisis hour;

But God saw them through (and He will you!)

With His mighty power.

Out of the Towns of Egypt,

Out of the ghettos of Ham,

With oxen and calf, kid and goat,

Ewe and stately old ram,


With bundles on back and head:

Breadboards and extra garb,

Marched a nation of men,

Who’d recently felt a master’s barb.


Mountain to right of them,

Rose in its height,

Mountain to left of them,

Cut off all flight.


While the rumble of chariots,

Told their sad ear,

That old Pharaoh now,

Approached from the rear,


And the sea before them,

(Their only way to pass)

Lay calm and deadly still,

Like a giant looking glass.  –eab, 3/99 edited 1/09
