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 behold 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 waters clear.
