This song is referenced by Song 101 – This New Song, and was used as the music for Psalm 68. The words are from Exodus 15:1-8 and 10-19, where Moses writes “I will sing unto the Lord for he has triumphed gloriously.” I then proceed to quote the song, as it is recorded in the scriptures. The words describe how the Lord threw the horse and his rider into the sea, how Pharaoh’s chariots and his host were cast into the sea, how the Lord dashed in pieces his enemies, how fear shall come upon the mighty men of Moab, Canaan, and Palestina, how the Lord made the mountains as a sanctuary, and how the Lord shall reign for ever and ever. When I read about the Israelite escape from Egypt, I always think of the movie “The Ten Commandments.” So, the images to the left are taken from the trailer for Cecil B DeMille’s movie The Ten Commandments.
