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