The Chosen Hosts From Egypt Went

The chosen hosts from Egypt went;
The way to them was new;
Yet journey’d on, at heart content
The Lord would bring then through.

By pillar and cloud the Lord led on,
From Egypt to Canaan’s strand;
Thro’ the wilderness way,
By night and by day,
Up to the promised land.

We as in darkness need not grope,
Nor coming day e’er dread;
If we but make the Lord our hope,
And follow where we’re led. [Refrain]

To walk “by faith” with God to lead,
Might well our pleasure be;
To hear His voice, and then to heed,
Were better than to see. [Refrain]
