When Israel fled from Egypt

When Israel fled from egypt
and Jacob’s people left that foreign land,
then Judah was God’s temple,
and Israel was the treasure in his hand.

2. The Red Sea looked, and wondered;
the Jordan halted in its winding way.
The mountains danced in gladness,
the hills began to skip like lambs for joy.

3. O sea, why did you falter?
And why, O river, did you turn around?
You hills and mountains, tell us:
Why with your dancing did you shake the ground?

4. You lands and waters, tremble!
The Lord, the God of Jacob, has come near;
he turns the rocks to rivers
and from the stones the living streams appear.
