When Israel out of bondage came

When Israel out of bondage came,
a sea before them lay;
the Lord reached down His mighty hand
and rolled the sea away.

Then forward still, ‘tis Jehovah’s will,
though the billows dash and spray;
with a conquering tread we will push ahead,
He’ll roll the sea away.

Before me was a sea of sin,
so great I feared to pray;
my heart’s desire the Saviour read
and rolled the sea away.


When sorrows dark, like stormy waves
were dashing o’er my way,
again the Lord in mercy came
and rolled the sea away.


And when I reach the sea of death,
for needed grace I’ll pray;
I know the Lord will quickly come
and roll the sea away.
