So they ruthlessly made the people of Israel work as slaves.”
Exodus 1:13

The world and their infernal god
Have ruled us with an iron rod,
And long our slavish souls have been
Galled by the rigorous yoke of sin:
Yet drudging on with abject fear
We served our haughty lords severe,
And hardly daring to complain,
We kissed the rod, and hugged the chain.

Charles Wesley, Short Hymns on Select Passages of the Holy Scriptures (1762)
