1. Alleluia! When Israel came out of Egypt, the House of Jacob from a people of foreign speech,

2. Judah became his sanctuary, and Israel his domain.

3. The sea fled at the sight, the Jordan turned back,

4. the mountains skipped like rams, the hills like sheep.

5. Sea, what makes you flee? Jordan, why turn back?

6. Why skip like rams, you mountains? Why like sheep, you hills?

7. Tremble, earth, at the coming of the Lord, at the coming of the God of Jacob,

8. who turns rock into pool, flint into fountain.

“Subamos sem nos cansarmos, sob a celeste vista do Salvador. Distanciemo-nos das afeições terrenas. Despojemo-nos do homem velho e vistamo-nos do homem novo. Aspiremos à felicidade que nos está reservada.” São Padre Pio de Pietrelcina
