1   O'ER Arabia's dreary sands, Israel pass'd to distant lands; God their guide throughout the way, Faith in him their only stay.
2  Mercies, day by day renew'd, Rais'd the hymn of gratitude; While like pearly dew-drops spread Lay around their daily bread.
3  Crystal streams, from Horeb's side, Each returning want supplied, Ever flowing to impart Feelings of a grateful heart.
4  Thus through deserts wild and drear, Manna, and the streams so clear, Form their only meat and drink,
At whose frown ev'n nations shrink.
5  Christians ! learn a lesson here,— Israel's God, for ever near,
Does both health and strength bestow, Where no mad'ning liquors flow.

1   SOURCE of being, Holy Father, With the day's returning light. Round our board with thanks we gather,
For the mercies of the night.
Mercies that the stars outnumber,
Which their silent courses keep,— Angels guard that never slumber, While we lie and never sleep.
