Leaving Egypt

Leaving flesh pots of Egypt, 
we follow Thy prophet 
into a wilderness
where hungry jackals
wait for us to faint 
and we must trust in Thee.
Here, the fabric 
of Thy faithfulness fails not.  
When we thirst, living waters 
burst from bone-dry rock
and we are nourished
in manna-sweet surprise.
