When Jacob’s House from Egypt Came

  1. When Jacob’s house from Egypt came,
    and Isr’el left a foreign tongue,
    then Judah was God’s holy place;
    in Israel he set his throne.
  2. The sea beheld and swiftly fled;
    the Jordan River turned away.
    The lofty mountains skipped like rams,
    the hills like little lambs at play.
  3. O sea, what ails you that you fled?
    Why, Jordan, did you turn away?
    Why, mountains, did you skip like rams;
    you hills, like little lambs at play?
  4. O earth, now tremble ’fore the Lord,
    before the face of Jacob’s God,
    who made the rock a water pool;
    from solid rock the waters flowed.
