Psalm text (Ex 15)

I will sing to the Lord, glorious his triumph!

I will sing to the Lord, glorious his triumph!
Horse and rider he has thrown into the sea!
The Lord is my strength, my song, my salvation,
This is my God and I extol him,
my father's God and I give him praise.

The Lord is a warrior!
The Lord is his name.
The chariots of Pharaoh he hurled into the sea.
The deeps hide them; they sank like a stone.

Your right hand, Lord, glorious in its power,
your right hand Lord, has shattered the enemy.
In the greatness of your glory you crushed the enemy.

You will lead your people
and plant them on your mountain,
the place, O Lord, where you have made your home.
The sanctuary, O Lord, which your hands have made.
The Lord will reign for ever and ever.

Psalm text (Exod 15:1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 17-18)

Let us sing to the Lord; He has covered Himself in glory.

I will sing to the Lord, for He is gloriously triumphant;
horse and chariot He has cast into the sea.
My strength and my courage is the Lord,
and He has been my savior.
He is my God, I praise Him;
the God of my father, I extol Him.

The Lord is a warrior,
Lord is His name!
Pharaoh's chariots and army He hurled into the sea;
the elite of his officers were submerged in the Red Sea.

The flood waters covered them,
they sank into the depths like a stone.
Your right hand, O Lord, magnificent in power,
Your right hand, O Lord, has shattered the enemy.

You brought in the people You redeemed
and planted them on the mountain of Your inheritance--
the place where You made Your seat, O Lord,
the sanctuary, Lord which Your hands established.

The Lord shall reign forever and ever.
