The Lord thundered from heaven;
the Most High made his voice resound.
He let fly his arrows and scattered them;
shot his lightning bolts and dispersed them.
Then the bed of the sea appeared;
the world's foundations lay bare.
At the roar of the Lord,
at the storming of his nostrils.
He reached down from on high and seized me;
drew me out of the deep waters.
He rescued me from my mighty enemy,
from foes too powerful for me.
They attacked me on a day of distress,
but the Lord came to my support.
He set me free in the open;
He rescued me because he Loves me.
