1.  God com-mand-ed, heav-en o-pened,
    Bread from heav-en poured on them.
    Mor-tals ate the bread of an-gels,
    God sent them a-bun-dant food.
    God sent forth the east and south winds,
    Rained down birds for them to eat.
    'Round their tents the quails came fall-ing,
    They ate and were sat-is-fied.
