Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

So, if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. You can make your tax-deductible contribution through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.

When Isr'el out of Egypt went

When Isr'el out of Egypt went, And did his dwelling change

Published in 1 hymnal

Full Text

1 When Isr’el out of Egypt went,
and did his dwelling change,
When Jacob’s house went out from those
that were of language strange,

2 He Judah did his sanctuary,
his kingdom Isr’el make:
3 The sea it saw, and quickly fled,
Jordan was driven back.

4 Like rams the mountains, and like lambs
the hills skipp’d to and fro.
5 O sea, why fledd’st thou? Jordan, back
why wast thou driven so?

6 Ye mountains great, wherefore was it
that ye did skip like rams?
And wherefore was it, little hills,
that ye did leap like lambs?

7 O at the presence of the Lord,
earth, tremble thou for fear,
While as the presence of the God
of Jacob doth appear:

8 Who from the hard and stony rock
did standing water bring;
And by his pow’r did turn the flint
into a water-spring.

Scottish Psalter and Paraphrases, 1800
