1. When Israel came forth from Egypt, the house of Jacob from an alien people,

2. Judah became God's holy place, Israel, God's domain.

3. The sea beheld and fled; the Jordan turned back.

4. The mountains skipped like rams; the hills, like lambs of the flock.

5. Why was it, sea, that you fled? Jordan, that you turned back?

6. You mountains, that you skipped like rams? You hills, like lambs of the flock?

7. Tremble, earth, before the Lord, before the God of Jacob,

8. Who turned rock into pools of water, stone into flowing springs.




“O Senhor nos dá tantas graças e nós pensamos que tocamos o céu com um dedo. Não sabemos, no entanto, que para crescer precisamos de pão duro, das cruzes, das humilhações, das provações e das contradições.” São Padre Pio de Pietrelcina
