Chag Pesach Sameach!

When Israel left Egypt,
the house of Yaakov left a people of a strange tongue,
Yehudah became His holy nation, Israel His dominion.
The sea saw and fled; the Jordan turned backward.
The mountains danced like rams, hills like young sheep.
What frightens you, O sea, that you flee? O Jordan, that you turn backward?
You mountains, that you dance like rams; you hills, like young sheep?
From before the Master, Who created the earth, from before the G-d of Yaakov,
Who transforms the rock into a pond of water, the flint into a fountain of water.  

(Psalm 114, from the Hallel praises recited at the Passover Seder)
Erev Pesach 5770/March 29, 2010
