1 When Israel was going forth
from out of Egypt’s land,
and Jacob’s house from foreign tongues
they could not understand,
2 to be God’s holy dwelling place,
God’s choice on Judah fell,
and there as God’s dominion took
God’s chosen Israel.
3 The sea beheld and fled away;
the Jordan stopped its flow.
The mountains skipped like rams; the hills
like lambs skipped to and fro.
4 O sea, why did you run away?
O Jordan, why turn tide?
You mounts and hills, like rams and lambs,
why leap on every side?
5 O tremble, earth, before the Lord;
the God of Jacob fear;
God made the rock a water pool,
the stone a fountain clear.
