Psalter 307

Verse 1
When Israel out of Egypt went,
From people of a speech unknown,
The Lord among His people dwelt,
And there He set His royal throne.

Verse 2
The sea beheld and fled away,
The Jordan's waters backward turned,
The lofty mountains and the hills
With trembling awe our God discerned.

Verse 3
What aileth thee, O troubled sea?
Thou Jordan, why thy riven tide?
Ye mountains and ye little hills,
Why thus dismayed on ev'ry side?

Verse 4
O tremble, earth, before the Lord,
In presence of Jehovah fear,
Beneath Whose touch the flinty rock
Became a fount of waters clear.
