We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

When Israel did depart

When Israel did depart

Representative Text

1 When Isra'l did depart
Th' Egyptians from among:
The house of Jacob from a folk
That strangers were in tongue,
2 Judah his holy place,
His Lordship Isra'l was:
3 The sea saw, and it fled: and back
Was Jordan forc'd to pass.

4 The mountains skip'd aloft,
As if they had been rams:
The little hills they also leap'd,
As if they had been lambs.
5 Thou sea, what made thee fly?
Thou Jordan back to go?
6 Ye mountains, that ye skip'd like rams,
Like lambs ye hills also?

7 Before the Lord his face,
O tremble earth with fear:
When as the presence of the God
Of Jacob doth appear.
§ Who turn'd the stony rock
Into a wat'ry lake:
A water-running fountain he
Did of the flint-stone make.
