Rejoice, oh chosen of God
because It promised to love us always.
It made a deal with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
It led them into Egypt’s blaze
and, through Moses, back out again!
Upon the Egyptians It smote
plague upon plague
until the Nile itself did bloat
with carcasses and cadavers.
It permitted the Israelites to take
all the riches found in Pharaoh’s land.
Fed them with manna and from the rock their thirst did slake.
