Psalm 114:1-8 [German]

When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language;

Judah was his sanctuary, and Israel his dominion.

The sea saw it, and fled: Jordan was driven back.

The mountains skipped like rams, and the little hills like lambs.

What ailed thee, O thou sea, that thou fleddest? thou Jordan, that thou wast driven back?

Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams; and ye little hills, like lambs?

Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob;

Which turned the rock into a standing water, the flint into a fountain of waters.

Psalm 114, “When Israel out of Egypt came,” for double chorus and orchestra, op. 51 (premiered 1840, published 1841), composed by Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy (1809-1847)

Psalm 13:1-6 [German]

How long wilt thou forget me, O Lord? for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?

How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?

Consider and hear me, O Lord my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;

Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.

But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.

I will sing unto the Lord, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.

Herr, wie lange willst du mein so gar vergessen for female voices, Op. 27, composed by Johannes Brahms (1833-1897). First performed, with Brahms conducting, in St Peter’s Church, Hamburg, on 19 September 1859; published 1864. Additional information here.
