7369. When Israel Out of Egypt Went

1. When Israel out of Egypt went,
From people of a speech unknown,
The Lord among His people dwelt,
And there He set his royal throne.

2. The sea beheld and fled away,
The Jordan’s waters backward turned,
The lofty mountains and the hills
With trembling awe our God discerned.

3. What aileth thee, O troubled sea?
Thou Jordan, why thy riven tide?
Ye mountains and ye little hills,
Why thus dismayed on every side?

4. O tremble, earth, before the Lord,
In presence of Jehovah fear,
Beneath whose touch the flinty rock
Became a fount of water clear.
