11 I will remember the deeds of the Lord;

12 I will consider(B) all your works
    and meditate on all your mighty deeds.”(C)

13 Your ways, God, are holy.
    What god is as great as our God?(D)
14 You are the God who performs miracles;(E)
    you display your power among the peoples.
15 With your mighty arm you redeemed your people,(F)
    the descendants of Jacob and Joseph.

16 The waters(G) saw you, God,
    the waters saw you and writhed;(H)
    the very depths were convulsed.
17 The clouds poured down water,(I)
    the heavens resounded with thunder;(J)
    your arrows(K) flashed back and forth.
18 Your thunder was heard in the whirlwind,(L)
    your lightning(M) lit up the world;
    the earth trembled and quaked.(N)
19 Your path(O) led through the sea,(P)
    your way through the mighty waters,
    though your footprints were not seen.

20 You led your people(Q) like a flock(R)
    by the hand of Moses and Aaron.(S)
