Out of Egypt

Carolyn Hyde

And there she will sing as in the days of her youth

As in the days she came out of Egypt

So will I draw her, I will lead her into the dessert

I will speak to her gently, I will open a door of hope

I will betroth you, And act out of compassion

I will always be faithful and you will acknowledge the Lord
