PSALM 78:1-4, 12-16
METER: 77 77 77 77 77
This is the meter for the hymn "Hark! the Herald Angels Sing."

1.  List-en, all, to what I teach,
    Pay heed to what I shall say.
    I will speak in par-a-bles
    And tell mys-t'ries from the past.
    Things that we have heard made known,
    That our par-ents told to us.
    We won't hide them from our young,
    We will tell those yet to come,
    All the might-y deeds of God,
    All the won-ders he has done.
2.  In our fore-bears' sight he did
    Won-ders great on E-gypt's plain.
    God did split the sea in two,
    Made the wa-ter stand like walls.
    By day he led with a cloud,
    All night with a fie-ry light.
    In the des-ert he split rocks,
    Giv-ing wa-ter from the ground.
    He brought streams out of the rock;
    Like a riv-er wa-ter flowed.
