15800. Awake! Awake! Thou Mighty Arm

1 Awake, awake! Thou mighty Arm,
Who hast such wonders wrought;
Who captive Israel freed from harm,
And out of Egypt brought.

2 Art Thou not He who Rahab slew,
And crushed the dragon’s head?
Constrained by Thee, the waves withdrew
From their accustomed bed.

3 Again Thy wonted prowess show,
Be Thou made bare again;
And let Thine adversaries know,
That they resist in vain.
