Psalm 78:1-4, 12-16
Listen to my teaching, people;
Hear what I say.
I will tell stories
And dark tales from the past,
Of things we’ve heard
From the mouths of our ancestors.
We won’t keep them from our children;
We will tell the next generation
What God has done
And how strong God is,
That they, too, may be filled with wonder.
As they looked on, God did miracles
From Egypt to Zoan.
God divided the sea,
So they passed through it
With waters piled up.
During the day God led them with a cloud.
During the night God led them by firelight.
God split rocks open in the desert,
So they could drink their fill from the deep.
God made fountains out of rocks
And water flowed down in rivers.
