MOSES AND AMALEK




While Joshua led the armed bands.
Of Israel forth to war;
Moses apart with lifted hands
Engaged in humble prayer.


The armed bands had quickly failed,
And perished in the fight;
If Mosesí prayer had not prevailed
To put the foes to flight.


When Mosesí hands through weakness dropped,
The warriors fainted too;
Israelís success at once was stopped,
And Amílek bolder grew.


A people, always prone to boast,
Were taught by this suspense,
That not a numírous armed host,
But God was their defence.


We now of fleets and armies vaunt,
And ships and men prepare;
But men like Moses most we want,
To save the state by prayer.


Yet, Lord, we hope thou hast prepared
A hidden few today;
(The nationís secret strength and guard)
To weep, and mourn, and pray.


O hear their prayers and grant us aid,
Bid war and discord cease;
Heal the sad breach which sin has made,
And bless us all with peace.
