God is at Work, Whether we See or Not


God is at work, whether we see or not

Even at midnight He can hold the fort

Do you need reminding, He works all shifts?

And so there is no cloud He cannot lift.



Let Pharaoh’s horses and soldiers pursue

They will surely meet with their Waterloo

The plans and purposes of God will be

They will sink like lead and stone in the Red Sea.


Let the sound of praise in God’s camp be heard

Replacing every doubt and fears instead.

God’s power and His glory will soon be seen

Mauling, dwarfing, Goliaths, giants, seen.

5 Now it was told the king of Egypt that the people had fled, and the heart of Pharaoh and his servants was turned against the people; and they said, “Why have we done this, that we have let Israel go from serving us?” 6 So he made ready his chariot and took his people with him. 7 Also, he took six hundred choice chariots, and all the chariots of Egypt with captains over every one of them. 8 And the LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and he pursued the children of Israel; and the children of Israel went out with boldness. 9 So the Egyptians pursued them, all the horses and chariots of Pharaoh, his horsemen and his army, and overtook them camping by the sea beside Pi Hahiroth, before Baal Zemphon. 26 Then the LORD said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand over the sea, that the waters may come back upon the Egyptians, on their chariots, and on their horsemen.”


The Song of Moses

 1 Then Moses and the children of Israel sang this song to the LORD, and spoke, saying:

      “I will sing to the LORD,
      For He has triumphed gloriously!
      The horse and its rider
      He has thrown into the sea!

 2 The LORD is my strength and song,
      And He has become my salvation;
      He is my God, and I will praise Him;
      My father’s God, and I will exalt Him.

 3 The LORD is a man of war;
      The LORD is His name.

 4 Pharaoh’s chariots and his army He has cast into the sea;
      His chosen captains also are drowned in the Red Sea.

 5 The depths have covered them;
      They sank to the bottom like a stone.

 6 “Your right hand, O LORD, has become glorious in power;
      Your right hand, O LORD, has dashed the enemy in pieces.

 7 And in the greatness of Your excellence
      You have overthrown those who rose against You;
      You sent forth Your wrath;
      It consumed them like stubble.

 8 And with the blast of Your nostrils
      The waters were gathered together;
      The floods stood upright like a heap;
      The depths congealed in the heart of the sea.

 9 The enemy said, ‘I will pursue,
      I will overtake,
      I will divide the spoil;
      My desire shall be satisfied on them.
      I will draw my sword,
      My hand shall destroy them.’

 10 You blew with Your wind,
      The sea covered them;
      They sank like lead in the mighty waters.

 11 “Who is like You, O LORD, among the gods?
      Who is like You, glorious in holiness,
      Fearful in praises, doing wonders?

 12 You stretched out Your right hand;
      The earth swallowed them.

 13 You in Your mercy have led forth
      The people whom You have redeemed;
      You have guided them in Your strength
      To Your holy habitation.

 14 “The people will hear and be afraid;
      Sorrow will take hold of the inhabitants of Philistia.

 15 Then the chiefs of Edom will be dismayed;
      The mighty men of Moab,
      Trembling will take hold of them;
      All the inhabitants of Canaan will melt away.

 16 Fear and dread will fall on them;
      By the greatness of Your arm
      They will be as still as a stone,
      Till Your people pass over, O LORD,
      Till the people pass over
      Whom You have purchased.

 17 You will bring them in and plant them
      In the mountain of Your inheritance,
      In the place, O LORD, which You have made
      For Your own dwelling,
      The sanctuary, O Lord, which Your hands have established.

 18 “The LORD shall reign forever and ever.” Ex-15:1-18
