The Red Sea Place ~ Annie Johnson Flint

 

The Red Sea Place

Have you come to the Red Sea place in your life,
Where in spite of all you can do,
There is no way out, there is no way back,
There is no other way but through?
Then wait on the Lord with a trust serene
Till the night of your fear is gone;
He will send the wind, He will heap the floods,
When He says to your soul, “Go on.”

And His hand will lead you through–clear through–
Ere the watery walls roll down,
No foe can reach you, no wave can touch,
No mightiest sea can drown;
The tossing billows may rear their crests,
Their foam at your feet may break,
But over their bed you shall walk dry shod
In the path that your Lord will make.

In the morning watch, ‘neath the lifted cloud
You shall see but the Lord alone,
When He leads you on from the place of the sea
To a land that you have not known;
And your fears shall pass as your foes have passed
You shall be no more afraid;
You shall sing His praise in a better place,
A place that His hand has made.

Annie Johnson Flint, 1866-1932

  1. Good morning Ellen B.,

    Just wanted to stop in this beautiful Sunday morning. I hope you’re having a great time there in your winter wonderland.

    Have a wonderful Sunday!

  2. I remember from reading through the Bible that all Israel and the prophets continually referred back to the exodus as a pivotal point in the history of their history. And the poem makes it so very personal.
