By Pharaoh's wicked edict slain,-

God, pitying, hears their sighs and groans,

And stretcheth out his arm again.

Moses preserved and wisely taught,

His people out of bondage brought.

'Mid arid sands and burning rays,
With parched-tongue and eyeball dim,
The Hebrew turned his trembling gaze
Upon the rock of Rephidim.


The rod is waved-the rock is riven-
The streams descend its smitten side;
Ten thousand hail the gift of Heaven,
And eager drink the gushing tide.

God punishes their wicked desire
By fearful plagues, and serpents of fire
Ravage the camp, till in dismay,
The people for forgiveness pray.
Moses then fashions a serpent of brass,
And rears it high upon a cross,
And through the camp command did give,
TLet all the smitten look and live.r

They lower the net once more,
At their Saviour's gracious command;
And so large a draught take,
Behold the net brake,
And can scarcely be drawn to the land.
Moved by his power and wondering,
They leave their ship and follow him.

In grief and dread, around her bed,
Friends are weeping.
"She is not dead," the Saviour said,
"She is sleeping."
Faithless, they scorn the word of One
Who could not lie.
He bids begone; and, left alone,
His power will try.
"Maiden arise," the Saviour cries:
She sleeps no more.
With tearful eyes, her mother flies
The Lord to adore.

Years at the pool the cripple lies,
Waiting some friendly hand in vain,
The healing waters to apply,
Restoring strength and soothing pain.

"Arise, take up thy bed and walk !"
Is Christ's command: these words of power
Rebuke disease, the man goes forth,
Made sound and whole from this same hour.

Christ walking on the sea by night,

Have we no tears to shed for Him,
While soldiers scoff and Jews deride ?

* The Roman arms,
On every side arrayed,
'Mid combats fierce and dire alarms
Are gloriously displayed.

The massive walls and turrets high,
Which tremble now beneath the blows,
And quail before their mighty foes,
Seemingly feel destruction nigh.

Again the prophet stretched his dreadful wand:
With one wild crash the thundering waters sweep,
And all is waves-a dark and lonely deep:
Yet o'er those lonely waves such murmurs passed,
As mortal wailing swelled the nightly blast.
And strange and sad the whispering surges bore
The groans of Egypt to Arabia's shore.

No one of all the mighty host-
Such was the Father's stern command-
No one who left the Egyptian coast,
Shall sojourn in the "Promised Land."

Faithless, rebellious, their long journey through,
Each step was marked by the avenger-death;
At last-the "Promised Land" in view,
Aaron, with calmness, yielded up his breath.
