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.
