When Israel by the Almighty led enriched




When Israel, by th' Almighty led,
(enriched by their oppressors' spoil,)
From Egypt marched, and Jacob's seed
from bondage in a foreign soil;


Jehovah, for his residence,
chose out imperial Judah's tent,
His mansion royal, and from thence
through Israel's camp his orders sent.


The distant sea with terror saw,
and from th' Almighty's presence fled;
Old Jordan's streams, surprised with awe,
retreated to their fountain's head.


The taller mountains skipped like rams,
when danger near the fold they hear;
The hills skipped after them like lambs,
affrighted by their leader's fear.


O sea, what made your tide withdraw,
and naked leave your oozy bed?
Why, Jordan, against nature's law,
recoil'dst thou to thy fountain's head?


Why, mountains, did ye skip like rams,
when danger does approach the fold?
Why after you the hills, like lambs,
when they their leader s flight behold?


Earth, tremble on; well may'st thou fear
thy Lord and Maker's face to see;
When Jacob's awful God draws near,
'tis time for earth and seas to rice.


To flee from God, who nature's law
confirms and cancels at his will;
Who springs from flinty rocks can draw,
and thirsty vales with water fill.
