(Gen. 32:1-2)

Lo,  angels met a faring man,
and Jacob was his name,
from Laban´s camp away he ran,
to Mahanaim he came!

“Two camps” that strange word does suggest:
His men and Heaven´s hosts,
that served him as a pilgrim guest,
as friends and not as ghosts!

By angels Jacob was encamped,
though far away from home,
from place to place this pilgrim tramped,
yet ´neath God´s heav´nly dome!

Despite his blunders God stayed true
to every spoken word,
to you and me He´s faithful too
as pilgrims in His herd!

And if our Savior so commands,
we may our “Mahanaim”
meet, too, with angels´ serving hands
to glorify His name!

Thou God of Jacob, our refuge,
in Thee is strength and rest,
your love is endless, sky-high, huge,
and yet it fills our breast!
