Who should in truth  be named Zaphnath-paaneah,
Who is not only  the Saviour from all evil,
By whom the power of sin  has been defeated,
As crucified  where, spiritually, is Egypt
To bring His own  into eternal freedom,
Not only He  who has sustained His people
- His very flesh  the food that has been eaten -
To keep them in another  modus of being
But He who, come from God,  is the Revealer
Of God’s great love  and His abundant secrets
Which, till He came,  were in profound concealment?
None could sustain  this splendid name but Jesus.
