You are welcome to use these in worship or in your own devotions.
In exitu Israel
1 Hallelujah!
   When Israel came out of Egypt, *
   the house of Jacob from a people of strange speech,
2 Judah became God's sanctuary *
   and Israel his dominion.
3 The sea beheld it and fled; *
   Jordan turned and went back.
4 The mountains skipped like rams, *
   and the little hills like young sheep.
5 What ailed you, O sea, that you fled? *
   O Jordan, that you turned back?
6 You mountains, that you skipped like rams? *
   you little hills like young sheep?
7 Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord, *
   at the presence of the God of Jacob,
8 Who turned the hard rock into a pool of water *
   and flint-stone into a flowing spring.
Today’s prayer
Lord,  here we are once again: a people caught up in struggle, well acquainted with pain, and immersed in uncertainty.

We know, though, that this is not where our story ends.

You are the same One who led your people out of Egypt, chose to dwell among them, and caused even the seas to flee and mountains to skip.

Grant, O God, that we would delight in your work then and now.

Give us eyes to see and ears to hear of your redemptive love in action this day as you lead us into your peace.

We, then, will be among those who tremble at your presence as you transform all things in love.

In your Holy Name we pray.
Rev. Spencer Shaw, Pastor Hampden Highlands UMC
