|Gods Deliverance of Israel from Egypt|
| ||WHEN Israel went forth out of Egypt,|
The house of Jacob from a people of strange language;
| ||Judah became his sanctuary,|
Israel his dominion.
| ||The sea saw it, and fled;|
The Jordan was driven back.
| ||The mountains skipped like rams,|
The little hills like lambs.
| ||What aileth thee, O thou sea, that thou fleest?|
Thou Jordan, that thou turnest back?
| ||Ye mountains, that ye skip like rams;|
Ye little hills, like lambs?
| ||Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord,|
At the presence of the God of Jacob,
| ||Who turned the rock into a pool of water,|
The flint into a fountain of waters.
