When Israel by the Almighty ledTune: OLD HUNDREDTH
Published in 4 hymnals
1 When Isra'l, by th'Almighty led,
(Enrich'd with their Oppressor's Spoil)
From Egypt march'd, and Jacob's Seed
From Bondage in a foreign Soil;
2 JEHOVAH, for his Residence,
Chose out Imperial Judah's Tent,
His Mansion Royal, and from thence
Through Israel's Camp his Orders sent.
3 The distant Sea with Terror saw,
And from th'Almighty's Presence fled;
Old Jordan's Streams surpriz'd with Awe,
Retreated to their Fountain's Head.
4 The taller Mountains skipp'd like Rams,
When Danger near the Fold they hear;
The Hills skipp'd after them like Lambs,
Affrighted by their Leader's Fear.
5 O Sea, what made your Tide withdraw,
And naked leave your oozy Bed?
Why Jordan, against Nature's Law,
Recoild'st thou to thy Fountain's Head?
6 Why, Mountains did ye skip like Rams,
When Danger does approach the Fold?
Why after you, the Hills like Lambs,
When they their Leader's Flight behold?
7 Earth tremble on; well may'st thou fear
Thy LORD and Maker's Face to see;
When Jacob's awful GOD draws near,
'Tis Time for Earth and Seas to flee.
8 To flee from GOD, who Nature's Law
Confirms and cancels at his Will;
Who Springs, from flinty Rocks, can draw,
And thirsty Vales with Water fill.
