This is the Ionian Psalter setting. Note that it has been orchestrated for a full complement of brass and percussion for more festive performances.
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.
When Israel came out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange speech,
Judah became God’s sanctuary and Israel his dominion.
The sea beheld it and fled; Jordan turned and went back.
The mountains skipped like rams, and the little hills like young sheep.
What ailed you, O sea, that you fled? O Jordan, that you turned back?
You mountains that you skipped like rams? You little hills like young sheep?
Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob,
Who turned the hard rock into a pool of water and flint-stone into a flowing spring.
