A Reading from Romans 6:3-11 (N.T. page 156)
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:
The sea it saw, and quickly fled,
Jordan was driven back.
3. Like rams the mountains, and like lambs the hills skipped to and fro. O sea, why fledd’st thou? Jordan, back why wast thou driven so?
4. Ye mountains great, wherefore was it that ye did skip like rams?
And wherefore was it, little hills,
that ye did leap like lambs?
5. O at the presence of the Lord,
earth, tremble thou for fear,
While as the presence of the God
of Jacob doth appear:
6. Who from the hard and stony rock did standing water bring;
And by his pow’r did turn the flint
into a water-spring.
