 This is from the Bible
 The King James Version
and is so beautiful I had to write down
When Israel went out of Egypt,
the house of Jacob from a people
of strange language;
Judah was his sanctuary
and Israel his dominion.
The sea saw it and fled;
Jordan was driven back.
The mountains skipped like rams.
and the little hills like lambs.
What ailed thee, o thou sea,
that thou fleddest thou Jordan,
that thou wast driven back.
Ye mountains that ye skipped like rams?
and ye little hills like lambs?
Tremble thou earth at the presence of the lord,
at the presence of the God of Jacob;
Which turned the rocks into standing water,
the flint into a fountain of waters.
