Hymn/Song Information

The waters did them overthrow not one




The waters did them overthrow,
not one was left alive:
Then they believed his word, and praise
in song they did him give.


But very soon ungratefully
his works they quite forgot,
And for his counsel and his will
they did neglect to wait:


But sinèd in the wilderness
with fond and greedy lust,
And in the desert tempted God,
their only stay and trust.


Who all their wanton minds' desire
did suffer them to have;
But wasting leanness there withal
into their souls be gave.


Then when they lodgèd in their tents,
at Moses they did grutch;**
Aaron the holy of the Lord
they also envied much:


Therefore the earth did open wide,
and Dathan did devour,
And all Abiram's company
did cover in that hour.


In their assembly kindled was
a hot consuming fire,
And wasting flame did then burn up
the wicked in his ire.


Upon the hill of Horeb they
an idol calf did frame,
And there the molten image they
did worship of the same.


Thus to the likeness of a calf
which feedeth on the grass,
They turnèd all their glory, and
their honor did deface;


And God their only Savior they
un-thankfully forgot,
Who many great and mighty things
in Egypt's land had wrought.
