Scottish Psalter: Psalm 114

Psalm 114: When Isr'el out of Egypt went

Meter: C.M. (8,6,8,6)

1 When Isr’el out of Egypt went, and did his dwelling change, When Jacob’s house went out from those that were of language strange,

2 He Judah did his sanctuary, his kingdom Isr’el make: 3 The sea it saw, and quickly fled, Jordan was driven back.

4 Like rams the mountains, and like lambs the hills skipp’d to and fro. 5 O sea, why fledd’st thou? Jordan, back why wast thou driven so?

6 Ye mountains great, wherefore was it that ye did skip like rams? And wherefore was it, little hills, that ye did leap like lambs?

7 O at the presence of the Lord, earth, tremble thou for fear, While as the presence of the God of Jacob doth appear:

8 Who from the hard and stony rock did standing water bring; And by his pow’r did turn the flint into a water-spring.
