The Song of Moses and Miriam (Easter)

1    I will sing to the Lord, who has triumphed gloriously,  

the horse and his rider he has thrown into the sea.

2    The Lord is my strength and my song  

and has become my salvation.

3    This is my God whom I will praise,  

the God of my forebears whom I will exalt.

4    The Lord is a warrior,  

the Lord is his name.

5    Your right hand, O Lord, is glorious in power:  

your right hand, O Lord, shatters the enemy.

6    At the blast of your nostrils, the sea covered them;  

they sank as lead in the mighty waters.

7    In your unfailing love, O Lord,  

you lead the people whom you have redeemed.

8    And by your invincible strength  

you will guide them to your holy dwelling.

9    You will bring them in and plant them, O Lord,  

in the sanctuary which your hands have established.

Exodus 15.1b–3,6,10,13,17

Glory to the Father and to the Son

and to the Holy Spirit;

as it was in the beginning is now

and shall be for ever. Amen.
