John Phillips contrasts the songs of Moses and the song of the Lamb:
· The song of Moses was sung at the Red Sea, the song of the Lamb is sung at the crystal sea.
· The song of Moses was a song of triumph over Egypt, the song of the Lamb is a song of triumph over Babylon.
· The song of Moses told how God brought His people out, the song of the Lamb tells how God brings His people in.
· The song of Moses was the first song in Scripture, the song of the Lamb is the last.
