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.
