ELIZABETH RAYMOND-BARKER, 1829-1916
1 WHEN Israel out of Egypt went,
And did his dwelling change,
When Jacob's house went out from those
That were of language strange,
2 Judah became his holy place,
Israel his own domain;
3 The sea beheld, and quickly fled,
Jordan turned back again.
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,
What time the presence of the God
Of Jacob doth appear:
8 Who in the desert from the rock
Did pools of water bring;
And by his power did turn the flint
Into a water-spring.
