Psalm 114
CORONA | Common Meter (8,6,8,6)
1650 Scottish Psalter
Elizabeth Raymond-Barker, 1829-1916
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 skipped 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.
