To Him who struck down the first born,
His steadfast love endures always;
For the promised land to sojourn,
Blessings rewarded to who prays.
Israel brought out among them,
His firm love endures forever;
The enemies He will condemn,
Because His love will not sever.
A strong arm and an outstretched arm,
Such a love endures forever;
Keeping Israel from all harm,
In their trek that they endeavor.
To whom divided the Red Sea,
His steadfast love lasts forever;
Responding to every plea,
An abandonment is never.
Israel passes right on through,
Because His love is eternal;
But Pharaoh’s men had not withdrew,
When drowning in a cisternal.
He led them through the wilderness,
Forever His love does endure;
Comforting them when in distress,
Ever present to reassure.
To Him who had struck down great kings,
Forever strives His steadfast love;
Reassures what victory brings,
By abiding in Him thereof.
He gave them land their heritage,
For enduring love is steadfast;
An inheritance to manage,
A promise made to ever last.
He remembered a low estate,
Rescuing from all enemies;
Ensuring they would meet their fate,
For their belief in blasphemies.
He who gave them water and food,
Give thanks to the God in Heaven;
For the people that He rescued,
With steadfast love He has given.
