Is-rael the de-sert trod,

Sustained by power di-vine,

While wond'rous mercy marked the road

With many a mystic sign,

While wond'rous mer-cy marked the road

With many a mys-tic sign.

When Moses gave the stroke,

From Horeb's flinty side

Issued a river, and the rock

The Hebrew's thirst supplied.

But O what nobler themes

Does gospel grace afford!

From Calvary spring superior streams,

There hung the smitten Lord!

Of every hope bereft,

Sinners, to Jesus go;

Behold the Rock of Ages cleft,

And living currents flow.

Here may our spirits bathe,

Here may our joys abound!

Till ( passed the wilderness and death)

We tread celestial ground!
