Crossing of the Red Sea

Crossing of the Red Sea Moses raised his rod, As God told Him to do. The Red Sea suddenly parted For the children of Israel to walk through. The great walls of water Stayed on either side by God’s power, Until all His people crossed Then the waters began to lower. Pharaoh’s army followed them Into the sea so deep. So when the waters lowered Many a widow did weep. All drowned by God’s power Not a trace to be found. The Israelites praised God; The desert echoed the sound. The crossing of the Red Sea— A type of water baptism. For the chosen of God Were shown great favoritism. Saved from the Passover And then the Red Sea depths, How could they turn to idols— God loved them at such lengths? Maybe we’re no different, Often take God for granted Accept His daily miracles No eternal life coveted. Remember the Red Sea crossing— God’s care for His wayward children. Ask for His forgiveness Graciously accept His loving pardon. Copyright © Maureen LeFanue 2008-2011

    You told this story beautifully Maureen; how true it is that we are so blessed and then we forget and go our own way and pay the price. The old test. is full of these stories and we never seem to learn which doesn't say much for our intelligence. Love, Elizabeth
