How could the Lord for our sake part the
sea And choose full well a folk that evil knew? Passion, greed, and cruelty each Jew Possessed with Egypt's children equally. Yet those the Lord anointed as His own, Passing over them on vengeance bent, After many centuries to repent, Still have, like other humans, hearts of stone. So must we understand the Lord's high will On us to place a burden, not a crown. Vivid though His love, we lay it down Even as we think we bear it still, Righteous in our hearts, yet doing ill.
