Stay not halting, be decided!
With God’s people take your place,
They who seek a home in Heaven
All must run the Christian race.
Though the Red Sea is before you,
And the Egyptians in the rear,
Venture forward, no retreating,
Linger not a moment here.
If you go, you can but perish;
Onward move where God can save.
Hasten ere you’re with the wicked,
Sinking ‘neath the swelling wave.
God here meets his trusting people,
Makes a passage through the deep,
He’ll display his power in saving
Those who his commandments keep.
