Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

When Israel did depart

When Israel did depart

Published in 1 hymnal

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.
