Listen to the story of our people.
We are mighty and not feeble.
God chose us to be Its nation.
Jacob’s sons were Its foundation.
It led us out of Egypt.
Wouldn’t let Pharaoh reach us.
Fed us manna in the desert
and water from the rocks spurted out.
But our people sinned and angered God.
Learned what it was like to feel Its rod.
Plagues and famines, floods and danger.
Wars, rape, murder and exile.
