Bowed under brick.
What did they need? God knew well
And, sovereignly philanthropic,
Came as Redeemer.
Led through the Red Sea,
With tambours psalming their psalm:
Yet God perceived their need that He
Should be their Healer.
Flesh-bridled to err,
Meandering with regret
They found God willing to be their
And walled enemies:
As they wreaked justice on crowns,
Sword or wall in their victories
God was their Leader.
