When Israel by God's command from




When Israel by God's command
from Pharaoh's land was bent,
And Jacob's house the strangers left,
and in the same train went:


In Judah God his glory showed,
his holiness most bright;:
So did the Israelites declare
his kingdom, pow'r, and might.


The sea saw it, and suddenly ,
as all amazed did fly;
The roaring streams of Jordan s flood
gave back immediately,


As rams afraid, the mountains skipped,
their strength did them forsake;
And as the Silly trembling lambs,
their tops did beat and shake.


What ailed thee, O sea, that thou
so suddenly didst fly?
Ye rolling waves of Jordan's flood,
why turned ye so swiftly?


Ye mountains, e'en as rams afraid,
why did your strength so shake?
Why did your tops, as trembling lambs,
quiver with fear, and quake?


O earth, confess thy sov'reign Lord,
and dread his mighty hand;
Before the face of Jacob's God,
fear ye both sea and land.


I mean the God, who from hard rocks
causèd floods to appear,
And from the stony flint doth send
fountains of water clear.
