The Lord Can Split the Sea

This is a poem for children; a poem about the Exodus.

The Lord can split the sea
And make dry land appear.
He cares for you and me.
His help is always near.

The Lord can drown the men
Who fight against his will.
They're strong at first, but then
God wins! We're safe and still.

Dear Lord, you know I'm weak
And small and sometimes scared,
But you're the strength I seek.
You're never unprepared.

So, if I feel alone,
I'll look to you and pray.
You care for all your own.
I'm safe in you today.

...I will get honor over Pharaoh and over all his army, 
that the Egyptians may know that I am the LORD. 
--Exodus 14:4 NKJV
