Psalm 114

Words: The Scottish Psalter

Common Metre Tunes

 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.
