—all together now, Israel, sing out!—
when everyone went against us,
by their violent anger,
drowned in the torrent;
in the wild, raging water.
He didn’t go off and leave us.
He didn’t abandon us defenseless,
helpless as a rabbit in a pack of snarling dogs.
free of their traps, free as a bird.
Their grip is broken;
we’re free as a bird in flight.
the same God who made heaven and earth.
