Song at the Red Sea
By George Lansing Taylor
Exodus xv. 1

SING to Jehovah, who gloriously triumphs,
  The God of our fathers, the God of the free!
For Jah is our strength, our song and salvation!
  The horse and his rider are drowned in the sea!
The Lord is a warrior, His name is Jehovah!        5
  Thy right hand, O Lord! is exalted in might!
Thou dashest in pieces the foes of Thy people!
  Thy wrath has consumed them and swept them to night!
The chariots of Pharaoh, his captains and princes,
  The hosts of oppression, the legions of wrong,        10
The blast of Thy nostrils with floods overwhelms them,
  And Israel shouts in her thunders of song!
What God of the nations is like to Jehovah?
  Glorious in holiness, fearful in praise!
All people shall fear Him, all ages adore Him!        15
  He reigns in His glory, through infinite days!
