Hymn/Song Information

When Israel of the Lord beloved Out from the land




When Israel, of the Lord beloved,
Out from the land of bondage came,
Their fatherís God before them moved,
An awful Guide, in smoke and flame.


By day, along the astonished lands
The cloudy pillar glided slow;
By night, Arabiaís crimsoned sands
Returned the fiery columnís glow.


Thus present still, though now unseen,
When brightly shines the prosperous day,
Be thoughts of Thee a cloudy screen,
To temper the deceitful ray.


And O, when gathers on our path,
In shade and storm, the frequent night,
Be Thou, long suffering, slow to wrath,
A burning and a shining light.

When Israel, of the Lord beloved,
Out from the land of bondage came,
Her fatherís God before her moved,
An awful Guide, in smoke and flame.


Thus present still, though now unseen,
O Lord, when shines the prosperous day,
Be thoughts of Thee a cloudy screen,
To temper the deceitful ray.
