A Passover Song
1114.1: Ex 12.51When the people of Israel left Egypt,
when Jacob's descendants left that foreign land,
2Judah became the Lord's holy people,
Israel became his own possession.
3114.3: Ex 14.21; Josh 3.16The Red Sea looked and ran away;
the River Jordan stopped flowing.
4The mountains skipped like goats;
the hills jumped about like lambs.
5What happened, Sea, to make you run away?
And you, O Jordan, why did you stop flowing?
6You mountains, why did you skip like goats?
You hills, why did you jump about like lambs?
7Tremble, earth, at the Lord's coming,
at the presence of the God of Jacob,
8114.8: Ex 17.1–7; Num 20.2–13who changes rocks into pools of water
and solid cliffs into flowing springs.
