View Lyrics
When we came from Egypt,
from a foreign land,
Judah was His temple,
Israel His command;
then the sea retreated,
Jordan fled away,
peaks arose as leaping rams,
hills as lambs at play.

Why, you sea, retreat, or
Jordan, fly away?
Peaks as leaping rams, or
hills as lambs at play?
Let the earth recoil and
writhe before our King.
Rock He makes a gushing well,
flint He makes a spring.
