Hymn 85

Play music

1. God who cheered the faithful Joseph
In his lone distress;
He who bade the shepherd Moses
Leave the wilderness,
Summon Israel from the darkness
Of Egyptian night-
He by Moses freed His people
With a hand of might.

2 God who led His chosen people
O'er the Red Sea road,
Through the wilds and over Jordan
To their blest abode,
Scattered them although He loved them­
He will draw them yet,
For His promise to their fathers
He will not forget.

3 God who gave for love of mortals
His beloved Son,
And received him to His heaven
With the conflict won-
God has given us His promise:
Christ will come to reign
O'er His happy ransomed people
In their land again.
