What wonders to our forefathers did he




What wonders to our forefathers
did he himself disclose,
In Egypt's land within the field
that called is Thaneos!


He did divide and part the sea,
through which he made a way
For them to pass, and on a heap
the waters made to stay.


He led them secret in a cloud
by day when it was bright;
And in the night when it was dark
with fire he gave them light.


He clave the rocks in wilderness,
and gave the people drink,
As plentiful as when the deeps
do flow up to the brink.


He drew forth rivers out of rocks
that were both dry and hard,
in such abundance that no floods
to them might be compared.


Yet, for all this, against the Lord
their sin they did increase;
And did provoke the most Highest
to wrath in wilderness.


And in their hearts they tempted God,
like people of mistrust;
Requiring such a kind of meat
as serv-ed to their lust.


Yea, they against him spake, and thus
their boldness did express;
Can God prepare a table in
this barren wilderness?


Behold, he smote the stony rock,
and floods forthwith did flow,
But call he now give to his folk
both bread and flesh also.


When God heard this he wax-ed worth
with Jacob and his seed;
His indignation also did
against Israel proceed.
