Through diligence, sacrifice and pain,
We till and toil in the fields,
While bending our backs to plant the grain,
We proudly watch our gardens yield.

Through obeisance, desire and anticipation,
We make amends to entreat our God,
While providing a sacrifice of the Lord’s creation,
His servants prophesize with a mighty rod.

The God of Abraham, Isaac and the rest,
Made a covenant with them all,
To bring the children from Egypt’s crest,
With a mighty hand, Pharaoh must fall.

With plagues, pestilence and the death of the first,
The Hebrew God made His stand,
To free His people, for they doth thirst,
To follow Moses into the promised land.

The heart of Pharaoh was hardened again,
Not to let the Hebrews go,
Trapped between water and the dry land,
God parted the sea, and It Was So!

As the Hebrews pass through the walls of the sea,
Pharaoh and his troops doth follow,
The last vestige of the Pharaoh’s creed,
In the belly of the Red Sea were swallowed.

Why did they lead us by clouds, over the sands,
Now, Moses and Aaron were hated,
How shall we survive on this barren Land,
With a loud voice, Moses was berated.

With Moses on the mount to converse with IAM,
Aaron was left behind,
The people were restless when they began,
All the mischief that they could find.

With the crowns and the jewels in their possession,
Molten Idols they did make,
With gold, the people made a calf’s impression,
Which kindled the Great Master’s hate.

GET THEE DOWN TO THE PEOPLE WITH HASTE,
LEST I CANCEL THE PROMISE I MADE,
THE CHIDREN OF ISREAL SHALL I LAY TO WASTE,
FROM THE PRESENCE OF EARTH SHALL THEY FADE.

Moses pleaded to God which IAM,
Why release thy people to the kill,
Why free them from the Egyptians’ hand,
To die in the desert, by the hill.

Wroth was IAM but for Moses He did love,
God repented with grief in His Soul,
This stiff necked people was reprieved from above,
Thus, the legend of the Prophets of old.
