1 When Israel fled from Egypt land,
from foreign tongue and cruel hand,
the LORD took Judah for his home
and Israel for his very own.
2 The sea rolled back to form dry land,
the Jordan fled at God's command.
The mountains skipped like joyful rams,
the little hills like playful lambs.
3 What made you part, O mighty sea?
Why, Jordan, did you turn to flee?
Why, mountains, skip like joyful rams?
And, little hills, like playful lambs?
4 Now tremble, earth, the Lord is near;
bow down and see your God appear.
His might makes springs to gush and flow;
from flint the cooling waters flow.
