Hymn/Song Information

Even Joseph who had once been sold to




E'en Joseph, who had once been sold
to live a slave in woe;
Whose feet they hurt in stocks, whose soul
the iron pierced into.


Until the time came, when his cause
was known apparently,
The mighty word of God the Lord
his innocence did try.


The king sent and delivered him
from prison where he was,
The ruler of the people then
did freely let him pass;


And over all his house he made
him lord, to bear the sway,
And of his substance made him have
the rule and all the stay:


That he might to his will instruct
the princes of the land,
And wisdom teach his senators
rightly to understand.


Then into the Egyptian land
came Israel also,
And Jacob in the land of Ham
did sojourn to and fro.


His people he exceedingly
in numbers made to grow,
And stronger than their enemies,
who sought their overthrow:


Whose heart he turn-ed that with hate
they did his people treat;
And did his servants wrongfully
abuse with base deceit.
